    There is just two of us at home this year. This is the first time in 20 years I haven't gone to help feed the less fortunate. It was a nice run.

    Whole turkey breast stuffed underneath and under the flap. I made the stuffing from scratch yesterday. Four quarts of it. I buttered down and spiced the breast and then stuffed it this morning. Just popped it in the oven. Going to eat at 2:30pm.
    Roomie is making the traditional mashed potatoes and ears of corn. She will make the gravy from pan drippins in the roaster. Creme filled eclairs for dessert.
    It's been in the 30s at night but nice today. Just about ready to put a fire in the fireplace and watch movies later.

    We are going up to Mrs. Enchilada's mom's place to gather with family.

    Turkey (her mom's - we baste ours with lots of butter and garlic and white wine)
    Stuffing of some kind
    Mashed potatoes (we add a skosh of horseradish when we do 'em)
    Yams in some kind of syrupy sauce
    Various salads (her sisters are vegans and so are their daughters)
    Cranberries (they actually never had 'em until I showed up)
    Green bean casserole (we bring it)
    Pumpkin and other assorted pies

    I plan to have one plate and save room for pie.
    We have an 18-pounder thawing that we'll roast here tomorrow.
    What's life without leftovers?

    Bon Appetit!

    We'll have 10 this year at our place.

    Two bourbon pecan pies (done on the smoker yesterday. Big ham, and a Turkey breast (in the smoker today).

    Wife made scratch Mac n cheese, and Chex mix for the kids. Also grandma's dinner rolls in a 16" cast iron skillet.

    Friends are bringing various hot dish concoctions and beverages.

    I'm the luckiest guy I know.

    I've lost 45 lbs. since June, want to lose about that much again, counting calories and intermittent fasting.

    I'll try not to let "The Season" set me back too much.

    "It just so happens that I like conch chowder...." :lol::lol::lol:

    Seriously, your menu sounds fabulous!

    I'm back on my own for holidays now, so I ordered a family meal from Denny's which I will pick up after work today. I'll make a green bean casserole to go with it if I have all the stuff at home, and treat the dogs to a bite of whatever is safe for them.

    I don't mind leftovers, so it won't go to waste.

    Here's the menu

    Happy Thanksgiving, everyone.

    FYI

    turkey too. But I guarantee the chicken doesn’t last as long as the turkey, it always goes first.

    That looks like some seriously good fried chicken. Is there a slobbering emoji?
