RE: Thanksgiving preparation thread

I briefly contemplated putting my turkey on the grill rotisserie but am getting cold drumsticks.

It's getting really cold here. We were planning to eat Thanksgiving brunch in the backyard this year. But, if we'll be freezing our thighs off out there, stuff that!

I'm buying the turkey today and just making the basics -- stuffing, mashed potatoes, gravy, and cooked spinach with pine nuts.

RE: Thanksgiving preparation thread



I'm making a list. I hope I have some self control this year and don't overbuy. I sorta love having all the leftovers though. No cooking for an entire week. Oh happy days.

Family, friends, food & fun. What more could anyone want.

I really like Ham over Turkey. My day used to make a gigantic bowl of potato salad with crunchy celery and deviled eggs layered on top.

My wife loves hosting... and cooking.

She feels the same way you do, this is her favorite time of the year.

My mom makes the best deviled eggs and potato salad. I can't match hers.

I used to do a beef and diced potato enchilda fiesta with Spanish rice and cheezy refried beans for Thanksgiving. It's one of my favorite meals.

But, my niece loves the traditional turkey dinner so that's what I've been cooking up for the last few years. It's good too and I enjoy cooking it anyway.

I love it. It's always been so magical to me, even the vibe in the air is different. I like the sights, the sounds and the colors, everything, I like everything about it.

My prep work begins tonight. We are doing turkey day at my Son's place this year and Pop's has volunteered to supply the whole shebang.

RE: Thanksgiving preparation thread

I really hate peeling eggs... Every year hubs begs for deviled eggs as an appetizer, and every year 12 my eggs peel like shit. It doesn't matter what I do. I'm sitting here now looking at 6 nice looking fully peeled eggs and 6 that look like shrunken heads on crack-fuck

You can't let them cool down too much. As soon as they're done drain the boiling water and fill the pot with cold water. Wait a couple of minutes and then start peeling them under cold running water.

My wife is a deviled egg master.

Aw shit, I thought they were supposed to be ice cold to peel properly. I've always dunked 'em in an ice bath. Going to have to remember this for next year.

I should be a deviled egg master by now, but all I am is a master of disaster with boiled eggs. They're pathetic. The only thing that saves my ass is horseradish mustard.

Works like a charm. I put a little bit of oil in the water while they're boiling as well.

This is all so eggciting. Hey don't push me off the wall.
