What's cookin' for Thanksgiving 2021??

Small affair for us, this year. Have the turkey roulade to drop in the bath tomorrow, and I'll be baking a maple pecan pie tonight.

What do y'all have on the cards for this Thanksgiving? 

Wishing good eats, and good health, to everyone.

    We just moved to AZ and still in our rental until next week. So it is a 4 lb Butterball Bone in Turkey breast for us. I will be setting up a 2 zone using B&B Lump in a Char Griller using Dr. BBQ Lemon Herb Turkey recipe.

    Prime ribeye (prime rib roast)....blanched some green beans for a casserole, and TBD.  I'm all about the horseradish sauce.

    Doing two turkeys, one in the roaster and one deep fried along with Taters, greens and pies. Probably some bourbon as well...

    Thanks to @Ikapigian's adobo-paste thread, I've been craving chili and now have a pot to last thru the weekend.  Along with Bisquick biscuits with a "best-used-by" date of 2014.  
    A roast turkey isn't a great idea for one person.

    We are doing a turkey breast, meat church’s stuffing recipes, potatoes, corn and some veggie.  We were suppose to host a small gathering this year and we all ended up coming down with covid over the last week.  We are all in good spirits, very mild symptoms but it’s making its way through daycare right now.  Likely working from home for the 3rd week in a row next week…

    Turkey and spicy Mac & Cheese for my parents side.

    Mac & Cheese for my wife's side.

    Providing a Turkey, mashed potatoes, gravy, stuffing, and a desert for a couple different families in need. 

    I just finished mashing all the potatoes. I'm also assembling the Mac & Cheese today but will finish off with the turkeys in the stick burner tomorrow. 
    Good on you, sir. I'm sure the families you're cooking for, will enjoy it immensely.

    Nice. I'm up to my ears in turkey stock this time - about a gallon from the work luncheon turkey carcass, and another gallon to come, after I smoke the breast carcass sitting in the fridge.

    I am surprised at the prime rib offerings.  I get that is a big deal at Christmas but thought turkey (good, bad or indifferent) ruled the 4th Thursday in November.
