    First, to jab at the nonbelievers, we will server the Lord. Bwahahaha!

    Our Thanksgiving Dinner has changed little over the last few years. We share it with friends, including the president of our Church Council at his home, and their extended families. The stars are high school aged twins that are brilliant and accomplished, true hopes-for-the-future, worthy of Thanksgiving. Thankfully, my daughter is recently back from traveling abroad in the UK. Unfortunately she won't be with us.

    The menu: Turkey, one factory and one wild. Stuffing dressing, one exotic (mushrooms/oysters/chestnuts). Venison (we're in the middle of gun season ATM). Ham. String bean - 'French Onion' casserole. Mashed potatoes. Candied yams. Cranberry fluff (yeech Cool whip). Gravies. Salads, at least two. Fresh baked bread and rolls. Crudités. Iced tea. Red and white wine. Seasonal beer.

    Later, for the gentlemen, single malt, and for the ladies, sherry. Much later, after the football game, seasonal pies.

    We have much to give thanks for. Confusion to the enemy.

    This year we are changing it up - maple cured bacon, waffles and tamales for brunch. And watching Dallas-boy Matthew Stafford w Detroit Lions stomp Philly.

    For dinner we are having new england lobster corn chowder, caesar salad and dry aged filet mignon oscar. Not too sure if Tony Romo can handle Cam Newton, so w/b having wine or Old Fashioneds.

    Some Vegan Tasteless Crap?

    Ahhhhhhahhahahaha!!

    OK. I concede vegans are free to feed their bodies what they think best.

    However, I personally checked in the mirror a moment ago and, just like everybody else, I have vestigial canine teeth. Meaning, this body evolved to eat MEAT!

    One of my favorite, anti-vegan, bumper stickers: "I did not rise to the top of the food chain to eat VEGETABLES."

    There is a culinary instructor on YouTube who, while relating how to prepare a dish, said, "You 'plant-munchers' can substitute..." (I fell out of the chair laughing--"plant-munchers" hahahhaa)

    I don't care much for turkey anymore. And, I'm not a big fan ham unless it is a thin-sliced cold-cut on a sandwich.

    But, the OPer's reference to "some vegan tasteless crap" positively forced me to comment.

    I'll make you an offer: I will argue and fight for all of your rights, if you will do the same for me. That is the only way freedom can work. We have to respect all rights, all the time--and strive to win the rights of the other guy as much as for ourselves.

    If I am equal to another, how can I legitimately govern him without his express individual consent?

    There is no human being on earth I hate so much I would actually vote to inflict government upon him.

    I checked vegan, because there was no none of the above. We had game hens.

    I've seen those. They're like those little Monopoly tokens, but edible, right?

    At least they count as meat. Well, poultry or fowl, anyway.

    Very edible, we prefer chicken to turkey, and the game hens are just the right size. IMO the chicken absorbs more flavor from seasoning than turkey.

    That's true! Dammit! Now I'm all hungry again! <wondering whether Kentucky Fried Chicken is open at this hour on Thanksgiving>

    I spent all day making chicken and rice soup yesterday. Made a big pot of it starting with a whole chicken as the base. Today I will be making my usual thanksgiving/christmas dinner home made cornbread stuffing with sausage, mushrooms, cellery, and onions. That's the extent of my thanksgiving dinner for this year.
    Armed and annoyingly well informed!

    There are two constants when dealing with liberals:
    1) Liberals never quit until they are satisfied.
    2) Liberals are never satisfied.

    We had a roasted chicken half, and rice/black beans last night. Just like the game hens I do a simple rub with garlic, pepper, and parsley, leave sit for several hours before roasting in a convection oven. I need to kill a couple roosters for pasta, homemade marinara sauce. It was a favorite growing up, the sauce, and chicken cooked all day.

    cream corn w/this years batch of NM's infamous hatch chilies finely chopped and liberally blended in makes a fab side to Cornish, ham, turkey, ad nauseam.

    T-day over....looks like we know that the Packers got their goose cooked by Da Bears...17-13 !

    Margin of victory the same as what Packer player's jersey number? Hmmmm. So bad was the defeat that the Pack retired that number.
