    It's catered and prepared by a professional chef. It's very tasty the way he prepares it.

    It's made of tofu.

    It's at my uncle's house but what I like is the mashed potatoes with coconut milk and this punch with melon and mint.

    I guess you've never had tofurkey. Or ever had a five star chef prepare dinner for you. They can make magic in the kitchen.

    Old-fashioned is on it's way out. Many people eat organic and are vegans.

    It's not yucky except to those who aren't used to it.

    Oleander,

    What you are preparing would be considered a snack in my family.

    We are having all the kids and grandkids over for Thanksgiving, all seventeen of us.

    When people arrive we will be serving pumpkin bread, hot apple cider, chips and dip, crudites, and assorted hors d'ourves.

    After that come the appetizers, shrimp cocktail and dates stuffed with cream cheese and walnuts.

    That will be followed by pumpkin soup which will in turn be followed by first an anti-pasta consisting of assorted dry Italian sausages )four different kinds), artichoke hearts, grilled red peppers, assorted hard cheeses, (ten different kinds), assorted olives, stuffed celery, stuffed mushrooms, marinated mushrooms, and grilled eggplant. lasagne accompanied by pepperoni bread and sausage bread with a marinara sauce to dip it in will follow. accompanied by a salad of baby spinach leaves, cranberries and walnuts.

    After the pasta course we will be having assorted sorbets in fruit shells to clean the palate.

    At this point everyone will take a break.

    Next comes the main course; a twenty four pound Bell and Evans turkey, two kinds of stuffing, one in the bird and one outside the bird, marshmallow sweet potatoes, mashed potatoes, red cabbage, green beans with mushroom soup and onion rings, mashed turnips, stuffed artichokes, spiced mushrooms, two kinds of cranberry sauce, gravy, and dinner rolls/

    All courses will be accompanied by wine, soda, cider and juice.

    Everyone will once again rest.

    After resting the desserts come out, at least eight pies, two sugar free and the rest regular, pumpking, apple, pecan, coconut custard and cherry, assorted Italian cookies and pastries, coffee, decaf coffee, espresso,tea, and cordials.

    That marks the end of the formal meal but everyone will then sit around talking and eating fruit and nuts washed down with more coffee, tea, espresso, cordials, soda, cider and juice.

    I know I have forgotten some items but that should give you a general idea of Thanksgiving at my house. My wife is Sicilian/American and believes in abundanza, abundance.

    because not everyone knows what they are. Heck, some here don't even know what Thanksgiving is.

    You are obviously married to my Mom's sister. I think it's why I go all out. I've been cooking for 5 hrs now and I still have a bunch of finger food to make.

    I think it has something to do with an approaching tempest in the horizon to hit the shores of Sciforums in the not too distant future.

    i must admit i was going to post a reply similar to bells' until i scrolled further down and discovered it was thanksgiving time. too bad the colonialists only introduced diseases, started wars and stole land from the natives here... if they had committed genocide we would get a free holiday.

    just quote her post that containing the link, you will see how it is.

    or:
    • block or select the text you want to link (for example: pumpkin roll),
    • then click the globe button (see pic below), it will give you a dialog box which ask you to what page you want to link the text (for example to
      http://blablabla.com),
    • copy paste the blablabla.com into that dialog box
