    • Turkey of course and I’m not crazy about turkey...Lol... the usual mashed potatoes, sweet potato something or other, corn, lots of appetizers.. cheese and crackers, sometimes soup (not sure yet), a pasta dish and cranberry pumpkin cheese cake...and many, many cookies.. all different kinds made by ME!

      I’m sure there’s more.. I just thought about it quickly...LOL!

    • Sweet Potato Souffle

      Well it’s like my Mama use to say....I really don’t measure anything....I just put it together.  So with that said I’m going to do my best in giving you a recipe.

      I boil about 6-8 sweet potatoes...of course peeled first.

      In a mixing bowl...mix

      cooked potatoes
      (1) can of evaporated milk
      (1) stick of real butter
      (2-3) eggs
      milk (if needed to keep the mixture a little soupy but not too much)

      Mixing w/ a mixer to completely smooth

      Optional:  you can add some cinnamon to the sweet potatoes if you like.

      Pour into a casserole dish...

      Topping:

      (1) stick of butter
      Flour (I can’t tell you how much...LOL)
      Brown Sugar ( maybe a cup)
      1 1/2 cups of chopped up pecans

      Mix all together and spread topping mixture over the sweet potato mixture.  

      Bake for 45-1 hour...don’t let the topping burn.
      Bake on 350 degrees.

      Not a great recipe but I did the best I could do.

    • Mzd3:  Fried biscuits are exactly what they are...fried.  LOL

      After we fry the turkey in peanut oil, we drop a can of biscuits into the oil..for about 30 seconds to a minute, then scoop them out very quickly and place on a plate w/ paper towels to drain any excess oil.  

      All I can say about this is:  they are so good they will make you slap your mama!!!  

      Of course not something you should eat all the time...so we only eat these once a year...Thanksgiving.

    • Mary, that is funny, slap your mama!  Hub’s dad’s side of the family was from North Carolina and boy, did they have some yummy recipes...thanks for the recipes.

      Neicy, the pineapple coconut cake sounds divine...recipe, please!

      Hub is scheduled for hernia repair surgery next Wed...so I may not be making anything.  My SIL is hosting Thanksgiving, but only our son will be going over as his dad will be sore.

      Possibly some homemade turkey rice soup and soft rolls for hub and a turkey panini for me.
