    I think you forgot the kitchen sink. :P

    Sounds like a wonderful meal. (Except for the jello parfait. I hate Jello.)

    I'm off the hook this year. We're going to a relative's house for the holiday. My only obligations will be to compliment the cook and help clean up. I can't remember the last time I didn't make Thanksgiving dinner.

    I have a great recipe for turkey leftovers.

    Turkey Leftover Casserole

    Butter a deep casserole dish.

    In a large bowl mix together:

    Bite-sized pieces of white meat leftover turkey
    Egg noodles (Bring water to a boil, add noodles and cook for about five minutes. Drain very well.)
    Frozen peas (uncooked)
    small can sliced mushrooms (drained)
    can of onion soup

    Add mixed ingredients to casserole dish, cover, and cook for 1 hour at 350 degrees.

    I can't tell you proportions because I don't know what size casserole dish you have. However the egg noodles shouldn't be more than about 1/3 of the dish.

    Leftover mashed sweet potatoes are great when reborn as sweet potato fritters. Sprinkle a little nutmeg on them and you have a deelish breakfast dish.

    HAPPY THANKSGIVING!

    Pumpkin pie? It's not turkey day without pumpkin pie to finish it off.

    I pureed a pumpkin this weekend. I plan on making two pies tonight.

    Well, I do have a pumpkin left.

    I thought it could be a bit much with the squash. But, depending on the time I just may do that. Good idea! Thanks!

    Got to thaw this monster bird, 22 pounds. It says to soak it in cold water changing the water every 30 minutes for 10 to 12 hours.

    If I do that I can put it into the fridge around midnight.

    Have to do it in the tub.

    That is a whole lot of water changing.

    Don't worry, it is wrapped.

    Hey! Is it supposed to float????

    Guess, I have to turn it over every 30 minutes, too.

    ssanf, if you keep this up you're going to have a lot of uninvited guests tomorrow!

    Other thoughts...I love spaghetti squash. I hate mashed turnips but they are traditional in some households.

    You can make a nice fritter with leftover spaghetti squash. You have to press the water out of them first and you need a thick fritter batter. Instead of coating the squash in the batter you mix the batter in with the squash.

    The best thing I ever made for Thanksgiving was a sweet potato souffle. Tough on the cholesterol but mm-mmm good. The stupidest thing I ever made for Thanksgiving was maple syrup candies. It takes hours to boil down a pint of syrup and you wind up with maybe six candy wafers. Never again.

    I WUV FRITTERS!

    SSanf - Chocolate malt yoghourt? This exists?

    I love malt chocolate anything - Milo, Horlicks, Maltesers - and I've got to hunt this down!

    You can't buy it that I know of.

    Here's the secret. Take cheapo brand plain vanilla yogurt and mix in Ovaltine and a little sugar to taste. Instant chocolate malt flavored yogurt! No one will know where you came up with it.

    Shhhhhh! Don't tell or everyone will do it!

    And, don't stand there eating that Ovaltine by the spoonful! For pitty sake, put it on your chocolate ice cream!

    I love spaghetti squash, too! Just goes to show a person with imagination can make anything fattening!

    What are chipolatas? I am sure to have left overs.

    They're skinny pork sausages. It was only after I posted that I realised you are talking about thanksgiving - I thought you were planning early for Christmas - duh!

    We were talking about Christmas dinner the other day and youngest son (13) said he felt he missed out last year as he didn't eat enough goodies and was going to make up for it this year!

    Chipolatas and bacon define Christams dinner in our house, I'm sure the boys wouldn't notice if we forget the Turkey as long as there were plenty of these, but woe betide us if we forgot them - they'd think up some modern equivalent of eskimos leaving the old and frail on an ice-floe when times got hard.

    If anyone has recipes for cookies, tarts and little nibbly types of things, I'd love for you to post them. I'm going to try my hardest at some baking for Xmas holidays :-)

    Recently my nearest and dearest have been pretending it is Cinco De Mayo on Thanksgiving. It is also a great day to buy steak most store will have it at reduced price because they don't expect it to sell for a couple of days.

    Susan, I solve the little nibbly things problem by putting together a huge antipasto. I also cut a large French baguette into slices, toast them in the oven with a little olive oil and put them out with a bunch of spreadable things like artichoke dip, fennel pate (OMG I love fennel), salsa, etc.

    If you want to go fancier you can buy puff pastry that's ready to fill and bake. Just look in the freezer section at the supermarket.

    Appetizers before Thanksgiving dinner is sacrilegious! LOL - Who's gonna have room for the rest of it? Veggies and dip would be all I would serve, if anything.

    Meanwhile, I'm up to my brains in feast preparations my own self. See y'all later! ;-)

    Happy Thanksgiving!
    Peace,

    Over here we're all set for a couple of very quiet days at the office.... we've invited our US team members to lay on a full feast for us... but something about the number of mouths to feed has driven them to decline... plus they wanted the day off too... tut tut tut!!!

    Have a great thanks giving!

    Cheers

    Thanks for the recipe, Rhea! There's always plenty of turkey to mess with for days. This sounds good!

    There's never sweet potatoes left here - I cover them in marshmallows before baking - the kids devour them ... me too. ;-)

    OK, my ciggie break is over ... back to the kitchen I go.
    Peace,

    Just coz I'm not cooking this year so I have sooooo much free time, I'm gonna share my stuffing recipe. Once again I have no proportions. I don't really cook from a recipe. hee-hee.

    Rhea's Bread Pudding Style Stuffing

    French or rustic style Italian bread, sliced, crusts removed, torn into bite-sized pieces
    Turkey sausage links, squeeze the meat from the wrapping
    Sweet onion, sliced thin
    Raisins (only nice plump raisins will do)
    Egg
    Butter
    Milk
    Seasonings (whichever you prefer)

    Cook the sausage in a frying pan, but don't brown it.
    Sautee the onions in butter, don't brown them

    In a large bowl toss all the ingredients together except the egg and milk. Be careful drizzling milk over the ingredients as you don't want the bread to be soggy. Mix again. Whisk the egg(s) and mix thoroughly into other ingredients.

    Grease a casserole dish and put mixed ingredients in. Cover and leave in fridge overnight. Bake for one hour at 350 degrees.

    You can do this with any "add-ins" really. The critical parts are adding the whisked egg and leaving in the fridge overnight. Doing this will get you a stuffing that has the wonderful consistency of bread pudding.
