    I have been guided for a few decades by the following weight objective: " Weigh yourself on the Wednesday before Thanksgiving and then hit that target the first Wednesday after the New Year."  
    Sometimes success... Regardless enjoy the groceries.

    Smoking a ham with a bourbon glaze and we are making sweet potato casserole, chicken dressing, corn casserole, Lima beans, and bread pudding with sauce! I can’t wait!

  • In recent years, Thanksgiving Eve has turned into an overnight butt cook for me. Have 4 in the works as I type this. 2 right now and 2 more after those are done in the morning. All for fellow coworkers that are going the untraditional route for whatever reason. 

    As for the family meal, I have been assigned the dressing, peas, and fried turkey. 19 + on the bird so a tad nervous on whether or not it fits the pot.

    We have some mission creep, on this side. 

    I was assigned to make a pecan pie. Then, found out that wouldn’t be any turkey. Hence, the turkey roulade thread. 

    But… what’s Thanksgiving without cranberries, in some form?

    And, what about stuffing/dressing?

    I’ll need to pack a bigger cooler, to take all this stuff :)

  • Put 4 pork tenderloins in the fridge to marinate until about noon tomorrow. Using the Caribbean wet rub that uses lime, spiced rum , allspice, onion powder, paprika, black pepper, cayenne, lemon pepper, brown sugar, and salt. Eating at my brother in laws mom’s house at three.

    Rough copy of this with what I had on hand.  I do it all in a casserole dish since I don’t have ramekins.

  • Having my side of the family over this year. Wifeys side has like 14 people. My side is 6. Smoking a turkey and a pork butt in the AM. Will eat the turkey at lunchtime and then have the pork butt for dinner. All the typical sides, and I made a pumpkin pie and a bourbon pecan pie with Woodford for dessert.

    Did a turkey last year and with only two of us a new definition of eternity. This year Cornish hens along with an acorn squash with filling. 
    Christmas will be with grandkids, I hope and probably Grandpa will bring his usual butt.

    Its go time!!

    The spreadsheet Stuffing is done. Blind baking the pie crust for the maple pecan pie, as we speak. Turkey roulade went into the bath a little while ago.

    Carry on.

    For the first time in many holidays….I’m cooking zero. Just a guest, and not disappointed 
    The same for me. I have been in Houma, La for the past 3 days renewing my BOSIET/HUET and did not get home until late yesterday. I am cooking nada. I’m so sore I can’t walk. But I prepared ahead. Have a honey baked ham and a few of their pies. So all is not lost 👍

    The greatest barrier against all wisdom, the stronghold against knowledge itself, is the single thought, in ones mind, that they already have it all figured out.

    True but it did not look right to my eye  with the actual salad dressing in the line below. Too much “dressing”

    Since I had the XXL going, I offered space to my neighbor for his turkey. I removed the breastbones from mine, he didn’t. 
    MAN that’s a BIG A EGG! Happy roasting and thanks giving!

    @DMW -great gesture.  Hopefully he did his own spatching.  Tool of choice for that?

    Turkey with kosher salt only on the skin, mad max seasoning (dizzy pig) in the cavity. Making gravy with what we catch in the paella pan that sits on the plate setter with spacers.   Call it a “deconstructed” cook compared to the roasting pan and butter bath of the mad max method (which is also great). Experimenting with a little bit of neck skin for fun.  Playlist is Spotify Thanksgiving Dinner.
