    Looking forward to The Greatest Sandwich On Earth!

    - white bread
    - leftover turkey
    - jellied-style cranberry sauce
    - Miracle Whip (one of the rare instances where i prefer it over mayo)

    Ohhh yeaaahhhhh. My annual fave.

    I prefer gravy instead of Miracle Whip. Mmmm, drippy....:D
     
  5. I'm not a big fan of turkey, but I can tolerate it once a year.

    Stuffing beats turkey 10 to 1 in my book.

    And I agree with jammadave that leftovers taste better than the actual meal. :cool:

    BTW, are any of you affected by tryptophan in the turkey?

    I sometimes nod out after the meal, but I'm not sure if it's the TRP, or just the boring relatives. ;)

    Leftovers must be warmed up in the oven - there is no other way.

    I like both. Variety is crucial in Thanksgiving. The people my family is celebrating with are making a turkey, my wife and I are bringing Trader Joe's spiral ham. I've even heard a rumour that someone else is coughing up a salmon dish. Can't wait!!!
     

  10. Yummy Salmon!
     
  11. I agree with you about heating up the stuffing in the oven, but the turkey must be eaten either on a sandwich, or just by the piece right out of the fridge - tons of mayo, salt & pepper! :hyper: :cool:

    Thanksgiving did not exist for me until my brother-in-law got a turkey fryer (frier?)


    This'll be the second year using it. Thanksgiving is truly a wonderous occasion now.

    :D

    Yeah i have heard that turkey deep frying has gotten pretty popular, the thing that i am really impressed by is what takes 4 or 5 hours of cooking in an oven takes 20 minutes in a deep fryer thats really something.

    Thanksgiving isn't known for being a healthy holiday...so why hold any punches?

    Does anybody have any insight into why Canadian and American thanksgivings are almost two months apart?

    Yes i do.

    The 2 month intermission gives time for the Turkeys to repopulate after Thanksgiving in the States. ;)


    Just realized that Canadian Thanksgiving is celebrated before Thanksgiving in the States !
