Odd Thanksgiving Meals

Post by DemonSlayerMau » Sat Nov 21, 2009 2:15 pm

Traditionally, I think it just isn't thanksgiving without the turkey. Nevermind all of the dressings and whatnot that you have with it, to me no turkey means no thanksgiving.
But this evidently isn't the case with other people. Some people don't like turkey, other people just want something different for thanksgiving.
Now, me personally, I'm gonna be having turkey with all the trimmings...but my Professor in college and one of my co-workers is having something completely different.
My professor is going to have porogies for thanksgiving. Yes, porogies. Not sure what they are, aren't they like potato skins or something? I'm not sure. But for thanksgiving? And they're the microwave kind too from what I heard. Wow. That's gotta be a strange thanksgiving, but she said she doesn't like turkey anyway.
Then one of my coworkers is going to have steak with peppers and onions. Don't get me wrong, I love steak with peppers and onions, especially in the summer time on the grill. But to me, a thanksgiving dinner this does not make. Now, normally I'm not a huge traditionalist, as I enjoy both old and new traditions but this is where I draw the line. I can understand if you're a vegetarian but in my book, nothing beats a real turkey roasted in the oven. Even if I was a vegetarian, I think I would have to make an exception for the Holidays.
Some people have Turkducken, but to be honest I think such a dish better fits a Christmas dinner. It's just not Turkey day without the turkey. And I mean plain ol' turkey too. Not some fancy concoction.
I even remember one of my dad's ex-girlfriends having Ham one year. Ham is for Easter if you ask me. Don't ask me why, but I always kind of associated ham with Easter Dinner with baked beans.

So I thought, what do you guys think? Are you guys all for the traditional turkey, or would you rather have something different? What's your reaction when a fellow co-worker, peer, teacher or whoever decides to have something other than Turkey for Thanksgiving?

I am pretty much for the traditional Thanksgiving with all the trimmings, Mau.
I tried different meals a couple of years and it just didn't seem the same at all.
I did a big Indian spread one year, Mexican another and Greek another. Just for the change.
I haven't done that in a long time, now. Give me the turkey dinner! :)

dressing.. its all i can say really hahaha that's the most important thing for me for thanksgiving :) i've started craving it BAD here recently
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!

I guess I'm a stickler when it comes to thanksgiving dinner. If it's thanksgiving, Turkey is the center of the meal. Of course, I must have my stuffing with it. (And for me, it's gotta be stove top XP I'm just not crazy about Homemade stuffing for some reason)
Is that what you mean by dressing?

I am pretty much a die-hard TRADITIONALIST when it comes to any holiday, but especialy holidays like Thanksgiving, but what many people don't know, is that there are numerous measl that are considered TRADITIONAL for Thanksgiving. Goose and Duck are or at least were very common as Thanksgiving meals. Turkey is more prevelant, because they are indigidous to America, but there are all kinds of foul that's eaten on Thanksgiving day, that are very much part of the TRADITION of the day.

On the first Thanksgiving, as you might know from the quiz, they had turkey, fish, lobster, venisant and a whole host of other meats.

A perogie is a crust stuffed with cabbage and seasonings, sealed shut and deep fried.

My people from the upper-midwest make something almost identical but the call them pasties (manners, gentlemen) and they taste as good as their name implies, which is based on the root word 'paste'.

They aren't too bad if you smother them in gravy or ketchup or motor oil or...
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.
