Better a turkey widow then a turkey dish
Sorry for your loss!
Turkey Day - In or Out?
I'm spending my first T-day with my family in 8 years! Yea! Hope my brother-in-law doesn't set the turkey on fire on his grill like the last time!
Turkey dinner...

with mashed garlic potatoes, bean salad, stuffing, gravy, ham, buns....YUUMMMMYYY I am sooo hungry!!


Happy Thanks Giving!!

Yes, and I'm the one cooking the turkey
Don't think my guests would appreciate a "tofu turkey". I will do the whole traditional meal and those who choose not to eat the turkey will still have plenty.
Tofu turkey
Yes, Im a vegetarian.  I usually make vegetables and potatoes, yams, etc., for Thanksgiving.  Made a tofu turkey a few years ago and it was delicious.  One year I bought Worthington Farms fake turkey slices and made some vegetarian gravy and we had *turkey* sandwiches, home made potato chips.  I have been a vegetarian for 31 years, since I was a teenager.
Ok, are ya sick of turkey about now?

turkey, rice and oatmeal
Don't know if it would help the gas problem, but when my dog got real old, he didn't want dog food, and I gave him turkey (vet said turkey very easy to digest) and rice, and he loved oatmeal.   I'm all for giving an old dog whatever makes him happy. 
the turkey produces its own liquid...
if you add chicken broth, be sure to only add a little- like 1/2 a cup.
My pet turkey, Bubba, died of
natural causes two weeks ago.  He was about 50 pounds.  His wife, though, Bubette, is still healthy and well.  I guess she is a turkey widow now. 
Whole turkey breast is good, too. sm
Pork roast tastes good, too, but I have a small rack at the bottom of mine that it sits on so it isn't in grease. I have also done whole chickens with lemon juice. Tasty.

I quit 2-1/2 years ago cold turkey
after smoking about 40 years.  It was one of the hardest things that I ever did.  To this day, I still want to smoke.  I am really relating to feeling like you lost your best friend because that was the same thing that I said!  I wish you well because it is hard to stick to it.  One thing I did want to tell you is that you can get support from the American Lung Association (or was it the American Cancer Society).  Anyway, they have people who can counsel with you, send you literature, can possibly hook you up with a local support group, plus they follow up with you to see how you are doing.  The more I think about it, I think I contacted the American Cancer Society 1-800-227-2345 or www.cancer.org.  Good luck!  If I could quit, anybody can! 
crockpot turkey breast question
I just got a crockpot, have not really used one much.  I want to cook a boneless turkey breast.  Have looked at recipes online, most have no liquid added.  The idea of leaving it on low at home, while I'm a work, (with no liquid) makes me a little nervous.  Comments?  TIA

Yep, and I had prime rib for dinner tonight. Take that turkey!
Thanks guys. And I thought I was tired of turkey! :)

I was going to make the pea soup today, but I didn't feel like it.

Maybe I'll have more motivation tomorrow. I got everything done early this year and I'm still wiped out. Maybe it was the pitter patter (more like CONSTANT RUNNING) of grandkids. 20-month-old twins, a 2-year-old along with a 2-month-old that is hungry every 3 hours.

I love them dearly, but I'm in my pajamas and it's not even 5:00.

Turkey stuffed with cornbread dressing....
With gravy, served with peas, sliced cucumbers and tomatoes, with strawberry shortcake and homemade whipped cream for dessert.....
DH puts it stuffing for turkey too- sometimes OVERDOES it - yuk is right
Ranch Turkey Meatloaf Recipe

I don't know about you...but I get sick of the same old thing for dinner...uggghhh  Try this...last night my family was the trial and gave the verdict....mmmm..mmmm...good....ENJOY

Ranch Turkey Meatloaf

2 eggs

3/4 c. of ranch flavored tortilla chips (crushed into small pieces)

3 Tbsp. Salsa (I used mild...depends on how spicy you like things)

2 Tbsp. Ranch Salad dressing...(I only use Kraft...but I am sure you can use any other kind of Ranch dressing)

1 tsp. chili powder

1 tsp. poultry seasoning

1 tsp. minced garlic

1 lb. ground turkey

Mix all the ingredients together....until you get a meatloaf consistency.  Then put into a baking dish and bake @ 350 degrees for one hour.  Serve this with salsa and sour cream (strictly your preference) but dipping in the salsa and sour cream just enhances the turkey loaf...  ENJOY!!!

Let me know what you think...

Thank you MTstars for doing the turkey giveaway again. I hope I win!
Just stopping by to wish all a Happy Turkey Day coming up....nm
No, my turkey is still in my freezer. I refused to cook this year.
I'm either going to cook it at Christmastime or slap some Cajun sauce on it and BBQ when the 18" of snow melts.
Greece, Turkey, Egypt, Nepal, Japan. sm
But I have to say, the USA has my heart and there are so many places here I have yet to see.   It was nice visiting other countries. It was ALWAYS good to be home.

Monte Cristo sandwiches. Perfect for leftover turkey.
Daughter is vegetarian. I cook a turkey and she hits the side dishes. (sm)
We do pretty well with this. I just make sure I have some of her favorites so she still feels like she is having a feast.

I saw a picture someone made of a "turkey" they had formed out of raw veggies. I think the basic form was one of those rounded shaped loaves of bread and the veggies were on toothpicks. the head and some tail feathers were made from construction paper. It seemed like an entertaining idea especially if you had small children around.

CONGRATULATIONS! Mary Y. of Bowling Green, KY on winning the Farm Pac Smoked Turkey!
Nope! I only stress over things worth stressing over, which doesn't include turkey & taters!
Used to work in Cooperstown, NY - and on the way to work is a huge turkey farm
It made me never want to eat turkey again - seeing them all cramped up against the fence and cages, packed tightly, no room to move. Actually, it made me want to do some harm to the farmer who found this acceptable.
I quit once for 3 years, but then started again. (Quit cold turkey when I did)

It's not a charity

I agree with you! 

I do not agree with the opinion that anything should be done for them as a courtesy or for free, not unless it is a charity and they are giving of their time and talent for free.  After all, it was their mistake, their requested changes, and it is your time.  Why give away your life time for free?  You only live once, ya know?

Remember, you teach them how to treat you...

My opinion is that it should be a $$$ charge for each recurrence, plus a charge for the time involved, plus extra if printing or anything else is required.  Teach them to keep their redos to a minimum..unless you just really love doing redos.  In that case, keep them coming...

Cards that say donation to charity sm
St. Jude's Children Hospital has them, it reads that a gift to the hospital has been given to the hospital in their honor. Very nice, not too personal and no hint that some return gift is expected.
Anybody donated a kidney? sm
My sister has renal failure and is on dialysis.  She was admitted to the hospital with myxedema coma (severe hypothyroidism) back in March, being hospitalized into the middle of June.  She made a miraculous recovery considering she started out on life support in the ICU of a major medical center.  She's now home and doing terrific, but she's been left with the RF.  She is starting the paperwork for a transplant, and I am considering possible kidney donation.  Just wondering if anyone has any experience with it?  I'd appreciate any info.  I've done a little investigating on the net and it goes without saying it's a big decision and a lot involved.  Appreciate any input for sure and thanks!

I have used this for years and have compared to Sylvan, Word, and MP Count, etc. When you have it set to count every character, bold, shift, tab, etc. It is great and always higher than the others. Now if you are wanting gross lines like in Word then no it won't be as high because Word counts blanks lines and Abacus counts a line only if there is a character on it. There is also two places to check for it to count the Headers/Footers. If you have the FREE version then it must be the trial or a very old version so you don't have all the features and functions.
