    Cheesecake.

    (I do like stuffing, but some people have a funny interpretation of it. Purina dog chow isn't good stuffing, and bread pudding is a bit wet to be called stuffing).

    Oyster dressing as a side, and pumpkin pie for desert.

    BTW- the OP's map: I grew up in the northeast and never heard of anyone serving squash (pumpkin pie excepted) at Thanksgiving. Am I the only one??

    Chocolate chip cookies. I make the best chocolate chip cookies in the history of this and every other parallel universe. I don't have enough to share with the entire class, so you'll just have to take my word for it. But, I promise you, it's really true!

    Since the article doesn't specify what kind of squash, I'm going to guess that it means pumpkin. Not really that surprising, is it?

    My Sophomore year in College (1977, Erie, PA)
    I stayed in PA for Thanksgiving, instead of coming home to VA.

    Anyhow, I had an apt. will one fellow student roommate, and I have memories of us going to 3 Thanksgiving dinners at 3 girlfriends ( friends that were girls) either homes or apartments- one Italian family did Turkey AND Lasagna!
    I don't know how we got thru it!

    With fava beans and a nice box of Chianti? :D

    When I was living alone and making my own holiday dinners, I experimented some with green bean casserole. I came up with the what I believe to be the perfect recipe; which is to say, I used the "easy" one off the Internet, and added one secret ingredient. Soy sauce instead of any added salt. Golden mushroom soup is sometimes better than the regular kind, too.

    D'Oh! I just gave away two secrets, didn't I? ;)

    Happy Thanksgiving, everyone.

    Let us not forget fond memories of that one special relative who always destroys the bathroom after a big meal - every single year. Leaving behind air so heavy that even the new bathroom fan can't seem to lift it out.

    And the feeling of instant survival-style focus you get when you happily prance into the BR thinking about how you have nearly mastered the art of eating almost enough to get sick, but having the discretion to stop at 4000 calories instead of 4500. The feeling of instant survival-type focus that makes you think "ALL THAT IS UNHOLY IN THE UNIVERSE!! I THINK I COULD FOCUS ON A GRAIN OF SAND ON THE SURFACE OF THE SUN FROM WHERE I STAND!! I UNDERSTAND THE DEFINITION OF PURE EVIL!!! LIGHT MUST BEND AROUND THE POINT WHERE I AM STANDING, I AM SURE GRAVITY IS ALTERED. NOW ONE EYEBALL IS TURNING INWARD AND THE OTHER IS NOT, AND I CANNOT STOP IT. WHAT IF I TAKE A STEP AND FALL, I'LL BE STUCK IN HERE UNTIL CHRISTMAS!!! THIS IS AFFECTING MORE THAN ONE SENSE AT A TIME...IT SHOULDN'T BE POSSIBLE. HOW IS THE PAINT STAYING ON THE WALL!".

    We shall call that man "Luther".

    Not kidding here, we may have actually hit a McDonald's later, like 1 AM!
    (a 24 hour one, 5 blocks from our apt.- we walked every as us/College was all downtown)
    When you're 19, you can do anything!
    (Plus we were/are big guys)

    I make a mushroom cream sauce for the Mashed potatoes. It has a varieties of mushrooms, cooked in half and half with Gruyere cheese once the mushrooms have reduced.

    I cook the whole meal, but that's the one everyone says is the best.

    I got out my baking powder, soda, crisco, white lily flour, and buttermilk and made biscuits this morning. Yesterday I did the cornbread; Martha White corn meal, eggs, bacon grease, a little baking powder and soda, and buttermilk.

    The breads get torn up and mixed with some celery, onion, and a heap of sage - wet with chicken stock and laid out in a baking pan. Into a hot oven for about 30-40 minutes, and you have:

    Southern Dressing. Ladle on the turkey gravy.

    If you’re not from the south you probably have no idea what I’m talking about:lol:
