Are you getting crazy over Thanksgiving? Craving to eat up turkey? And, everything else?

Does anyone to have anything to do for Thanksgiving Decors?

I just hate taking down Halloween stuff because the yard just looks so empty and bare. Well, maybe I'll leave some haystocks and scarecrows out there there! I'll have to get a couple more pumpkins! :D

OH GOD YES!! bring me the DRESSING!!
Last night 'twas witching Hallowe'en
Dearest; an apple russet- brown
I pared, and thrice above my crown
Whirled the long skin; they watched in keen;
I flung it far; they laughed and cried me shame
Dearest, there lay the letter of your name!

In all actuality, Thanksgiving is not going to be so fabulous for me this year. I had a gastric bypass last June, and I can barely eat tiny ammounts of food without it commign right up. One modestly sized helping of everything will most likely take me 2 or 3 hours to eat. For that reason, I am probalby going to sid this year out at home. My younger sister, older brother and I each take turns hosting the family Thanksgiving get-together. This year it's my older brothers turn. If I do accidently eat too much or eat too fast, and I can't get into a bathroom, that could be a problem, so this year, I am going to cook a very small turkey breast or roast, and improvise something at home on my own this year. Thanksgiving has TRADITIONALY also been the official kick-off to the Christmas season, so I 'll be playing Christmas music, and of course, there will also be a fire in the fire place.

Yesterday I picked out some new recipes to try for this years pig-out. All side dishes because you can't mess with the bird or the stuffing and there has to be some kind of cranberry dish, even though cranberries are food of Satan and shouldn't be eaten by anyone.

Can you tell I hate cranberries?
All you that doth my grave pass by,
As you are now so once was I,
As I am now so you must be,
Prepare for death & follow me.

I love to cook, but will probably end up at the relatives' house this year. Maybe I'll get lucky and get swine flu instead.

I got lucky because of my gastric bypass, but I will miss my brothers and sisters this year. The problem, I don't like my brothers or my sisters untraditional style of housing, the gas log int he fireplace and all the fakeness of the towns where they live. I like a REAL fire in a REAL fireplace, Grace said before we eat dinner, and since we've allways kicked off the Christmas season on Thanksgiving, Christmas music on the stereo. TRADITION. That's what I miss, and since I can't eat a "traditional" ammount of turkey and dressing this year, I would like NOT to be deprived of the other TRADITIONS.

:lol: I am the cranberry queen. I make my own sauce and bake cranberry-orange bread for Christmas morning, but I'm always afraid I'm going to run out of cranberries. So I buy bag after bag during the holiday season and throw them into the freezer. I have cranberries around all year to cook with. My daughter asked for cranberry-apple bread this fall already, and she got it, because I had some of last year's cranberries still.

Mike, I love tradition, too. I shall probably make the traditional Thanksgiving feast I always do, but my husband (50) was recently told that he is borderline diabetic, so we are having to adjust our diet to deal with that. The holidays are going to be a challenge with that new knowledge.

Murf, don't messaround with the diabetes. My Gastric Bypass pretty much resolved my diabetes, but I still keep track of my blood sugar levels just in case.

Since your husband is border line diabetic, I don't think a good Thanksgiving dinner once a year will harm him, but that was my attitude when I weighed in at 360, and my blood sugars were averageing out at over 300. The problem is "It's Thanksgiving, it only comes once a year. It's Christmas Eve, it only comes once a year. It's Christmas Day, it only comes once a year. It's New Years Eve/Day, it only comes once a year. It's Easter, it only comes once a yar. I'm on vacation, I only get to do that once every so often. It's my Birthday, it only comes once a year." See the problem?

I bought Stove-top stuffing to go with a roasted chicken this weekend, a sort of pre-Thanksgiving.

On the way home I'm grabbing a pumpkin pie :D
