Just curious what kind of food dishes you all plan to make this year. If you don't mind sharing, if you don't have any ideas yet is okay. Also if you don't mind sharing pics when you do make it would be nice.
Not being American I don't celebrate that, BUT my uncle and his wife just moved back home early this year (after living over there for 15+ years), so I wonder if they will do anything, and if so, whether the rest of us will be invited? Hope so, it's fun to experience other cultures.
Since my family is Canadian, we've already celebrated Canadian Thanksgiving, but I'll still chime in anyways.
My family usually has turkey, mashed potatoes, mashed sweet potatoes (some of us, like me, can't eat normal white potatoes), cranberry sauce, stuffing and asparagus. There was one year where we had turducken instead of turkey, but now we don't usually have the money for that so we just stick to turkey. There was another time, more recently, where we had deep-fried our turkey instead of cooking it normally.
My wife's Japanese. Excepting Christmas, which is also enjoyed very much in Japan in a quite non-Christian fashion, she pretty much just tolerates American holidays. She really dislikes Halloween. But Thanksgiving is ok by her, provided I do the cooking. So I got serious about this some years ago, and now I turn out a formidable table. Roast turkey, mashed potatoes, stuffing, gravy, baked mac n cheese, green beans, baked rolls, etc. Nothing is from a mix or kit, all from scratch. Only fresh herbs are used to season the turkey. not dry (makes a huge difference). I do cheat on the dessert though ... pumpkin and pecan pies, bought at Sam's Club. Sam's bakes some righteous pie.
