‘My turkey dinner is better than yours’

  1. Turkey on Thanksgiving is an American custom……… because it was originally a cheap meat…..as is the silly name. Americans excel at PR.

    Today is the ancient custom of the Harvest Festival from old Europe…..and involves a variety of foods and feasting before the winter sets in.

    Again, advertising has sucked people in. You’re even calling it ‘turkey day’ for gawdsakes! LOL

    • I’m not seeing the problem… an excuse to have a dinner with your family?

      • I don’t need to imitate Americans to do that.

        • Only you would care. Little secret Emily, every other occasion you celebrate is you imitating someone else.

          • Not everyone is happy to be a copy Andrew…..even if you are

  2. Just a Yankee onlooker. Green bean casserole and crescent rolls don’t seem to be part of your tradition. Interesting. Enjoy your holiday our neighbour friends to the north!

    • I can’t speak for all of Canada, but I’ve never come across the green bean casserole in the Maritimes. I did have it once, along with a number of interesting jellied salads, when I celebrated American Thanksgiving in Iowa. Also, crescent rolls, not so much around here, just plain dinner rolls. Thanks for your interest and the good wishes!

    • We certainly know about the green been casserole because of your magazines and cookbooks, but it doesn’t seem to be a biggie up here. Enjoy yours in a month or so!

    • We also don’t do the candy yam (with marshmallows) thing either.

      Happy Columbus Day.

  3. Great to see people larding with bacon – it makes the best drippings for gravy.

    • Maybe that’s the reason for the looming bacon shortage.

  4. Please find another location for these tweet thingies so I don’t have to scroll forever to find the blogs.

  5. Mmmm looks delicious, I am hungry all over again : )
