      My extended family is extremely liberal and they canceled all events 2020-2021. I was afraid it would always be weird and different but last year was same as usual, drinking and eating and playing card games listening to records all night. They didn’t even bring up my vax status and I realized they were only ever worried about me.

      This year I’ll bring cider braised cabbage and roast brussels sprouts because nobody wants to bring veggies.

    As traditional as possible because I'm the only one who cares about the holiday in my family and that's what I like. I will oven roast a turkey, make gravy from the drippings, mash some potatoes. I make green bean casserole from scratch, including homemade cream of mushroom (an optional side) and fried onion bits, pearl onions in a cheese sauce, freshly baked rolls and a can of cranberry sauce that only I will eat.

        I suppose so, my great grandmother made it who was Norwegian, though a few neighbors where I live make it as well who aren't. Guess I never thought about it.

        It's just peeled and boiled pearl onions added to a standard cheese sauce. Used to do the mornay sauce route but the sodium citrate/velveeta style sauce has gone over way better in recent years. Try it, it's simple and delicious.

      I agree with everyone that the cheese sauce onions sounds very interesting and good. I was confused and thought you meant that instead of fried onions you do like a cheese sauce onion in your green bean casserole - which is something I may have to experiment with.
      I kind of forgot all about green bean casserole, I've made it from scratch a couple times myself, including the fried onions + mushroom soup, from Babish (yes I know but this is a good recipe). Fucked myself up bad on the mandolin first time though, second year was much more successful.

      Terrible but kek'd. You need some holiday cheer friend.

      My family has been slowly been converting the canned/boxed stuff to homemade versions. Last year i made the gravy and stuffing from scratch for the first time. Mom made homemade dinner rolls and cranberry sauce. Just need to improve the stuffing. Also i dont like eating cranberry sauce. I should think of something it could be paired with that would bring out its goodness.

      Stuffing is easy, I recommend a cornbread that you make more moist to help with that. I love cranberry sauce, but prefer jellied, maybe that? Maybe cinnamon style apple sauce for that added tart fruit bit?

      sorry for bit of mass reply.

        >more detail on the kale
        Remove the leafy bits from the stems, blanch it, shock it and set aside in the ice water.
        Lightly grease a pan then add chopped bacon and thinly sliced onion.
        >if using smoked chunk in meat like turkey wings or pork hock, increase the amount of cooking fat appropriately.
        Set to low heat and let the bacon tender it's fat.
        >skip this step if using chunk meat
        Up the heat to high and lightly brown the onions then add the chopped, leafy kale parts with whatever water clings to them.
        >you may have to add kale in batches, waiting for the previous addition to wilt before adding the next one and letting it get contact with the pan bottom
        Once all the kale has been added, lower the heat and cook, tossing often, until tender and the potlikker is reduced out/clings to the leaves.
        If you like it Hispanicy, either add red chili in with the onion or do what I do: I freeze-dry my own chilies and crumble them in my hands to add at the end. For my kale, I use half a habanero or so (I sometimes adjust it up a notch or two) to about 18oz (about ½kg for you metric users) of leafy bits.

      Nice, thanksgiving is one holiday to not cut corners. It’s about celebrating that we didn’t starve last year, not that that’s really a problem these days but it’s the spirit and the effort is a part of it. Bums me out when people get pre mashed potatoes, gravy packets, stuffing mix etc.

            Nothing so grand as all that.
            No, they're dried, Ocean Spray Craisins that are already orange flavoured. I've got a bag that'll go off by years end so I figure I'll use them.
            There's also cherry flavoured ones.
            I'm just cooking regular ol cranberries in water with a little sugar then saying the dried crans at the end.

            Also, babymomma wants to make her family's carrot fried rice but I worry that Indian flavours will overpower everything else and I don't want two starch dishes at the same meal (hence no mash).

              Making your own from fresh is a complete piece of piss, m8. It's literally just boiling them with water and sugar. Nothing more to it beyond occasional stirring. Give it a go sometime (and keep a tin or two if the other stuff as backup in case something goes wrong).

          I like a crudite platter, with lots of pickled things on it, black and green olives, grandma's chutney, 3 bean salad, pickled mushrooms, radishes, celery, carrots, peppers. Usually have another cold dip, or hot appetizer, like spinach artichoke dip or baked brie, roasted garlic and toast, or stuffed mushrooms. Might recrisp some smoked wings or pigs in a blanket on the patio if people are drinking next to the grill and pool

          Roast turkey always, and depending on the year, just a smaller turkey breast, or a baked ham added plus a roast beef (up to 50 ppl some years)
          homemade stuffing, lots of sage, mushrooms, celery, parsley in there, oven baked until crispy crusted. I might add a cornbread stuffing if doing ham
          usually a big salad bar type of tossed salad, or spinach salad, as well as a jello mold of fresh cranberry-navel orange-walnet raspberry jello overnight. I might add a waldorf or a fruit salad if needed. My uncle had a girlfriend who made a simple cranberry sauce, which was canned whole berry ocean spray, raspberry white balsamic vinegar and 5 Hispanice powder which I miss if I don't add to the table.
          Simple green bean casserole with fresh green beans. I just really like the water chestnuts
          Sometimes an Indian corn pudding
          Mashed yukon gold, whipped with the mixer. I will have 1 deep tray of roasted baby onions, squashes, brussels, sweet potatoes, peppers
          Grape limeade, Reisling, great coffee with the pie
          Pillsbury Mystery Pecan (prize-winning recipe) pecan pie with the cheese cake layer. No one will touch the pumpkin pie, or the apple pie whatsoever, but I like a midnight slice of pumpkin pie later, maybe with my 1st eggnog

            they're total ingrates anyway, got some nice lingonberry jam and nobody wanted to eat it, they wanted that jellied HFCS cranberry "sauce" shaped like a can

            Almost every deli has some kind of variant of "turkey and cranberry" style sandwich which is representative of thanksgiving. Plus tons of dinners do a turkey, mashed potatoes side cran as well. You're retarded.

            Mulled cider on thanksgiving sounds divine. Do you spike it?

            I'm an alcoholic so probably, but I may be a little naughty. I HIGHLY recommend spiking it if you make your own, and it is simply so easy to make. Definitely go for farmers market/pumpkin batch non filtered pressed cider though.

      You sound utterly insufferable.
      When my mother was still alive and it was my turn to host my parents for the holidays (they come for Thanksgiving and stay through Epiphany), I cooked the foods she liked. This meant, despite being from the goddamn Alps, margarine mashed potato. idfky, but the old bag developed a taste for margarine when we lived in Asia and butter wasn't commonly available and grew to prefer it to actually butter. Do I'd make the mash the way she liked because of all the times she made things she didn't care for for me growing up (rouladen, for example; she hated them but we all like it so she made it for us). And I'd get tinned cranberry jelly for my brother cuz that's what he likes.
      Even my brother, who is vegan, and his horrible vegan wife would roast a turkey for my parents and me back then.
      My point is, you should serve guests things your guests like or, at the very least, have back ups they'll enjoy in case what you made won't be to their tastes. That's the mark of a good host.
      The point to seeing them this one day is because you have a four day weekend, something most working people simply don't have any other time of year, so you can make plans to see family and friends who don't live near you.
      The point is to not be a cunt.

      So open the tin of cranberry jelly, offer guests to try lingonberry jam too and try to have a good, pleasant holiday, you twat.

      Thanksgiving sides are based but turkey fucking sucks. By far the worst meat. Even when it's cooked "properly" ham or beef blow it out of the water. Makes it even worse that most people have no clue how to cook a turkey and end up eating meat that you have to choke down with water.

      >appetizers
      Mushrooms are a great idea. Also crudite like

      I like a crudite platter, with lots of pickled things on it, black and green olives, grandma's chutney, 3 bean salad, pickled mushrooms, radishes, celery, carrots, peppers. Usually have another cold dip, or hot appetizer, like spinach artichoke dip or baked brie, roasted garlic and toast, or stuffed mushrooms. Might recrisp some smoked wings or pigs in a blanket on the patio if people are drinking next to the grill and pool

      Roast turkey always, and depending on the year, just a smaller turkey breast, or a baked ham added plus a roast beef (up to 50 ppl some years)
      homemade stuffing, lots of sage, mushrooms, celery, parsley in there, oven baked until crispy crusted. I might add a cornbread stuffing if doing ham
      usually a big salad bar type of tossed salad, or spinach salad, as well as a jello mold of fresh cranberry-navel orange-walnet raspberry jello overnight. I might add a waldorf or a fruit salad if needed. My uncle had a girlfriend who made a simple cranberry sauce, which was canned whole berry ocean spray, raspberry white balsamic vinegar and 5 Hispanice powder which I miss if I don't add to the table.
      Simple green bean casserole with fresh green beans. I just really like the water chestnuts
      Sometimes an Indian corn pudding
      Mashed yukon gold, whipped with the mixer. I will have 1 deep tray of roasted baby onions, squashes, brussels, sweet potatoes, peppers
      Grape limeade, Reisling, great coffee with the pie
      Pillsbury Mystery Pecan (prize-winning recipe) pecan pie with the cheese cake layer. No one will touch the pumpkin pie, or the apple pie whatsoever, but I like a midnight slice of pumpkin pie later, maybe with my 1st eggnog

      suggests can be very easy and light- throw out some pickled veggies, some jam and/or fruit, a few cheeses and crackers/bread for snacking. Baked brie is also pretty easy, especially if you just buy the puff pastry. I do fig jam and toasted pecans in mine.

        One of those horrible "salads" middle Americans make. You beat the shit out of canned cranberries, canned pineapple and frozen non-dairy dessert (often called "Cool Whip") then stir in mini marshmallows. Some people add shredded coconut because of course they fucking do. Some people make their own actual whipped cream. Some people use fresh or thawed-from-frozen cranberries.

      >more detail on the kale
      Remove the leafy bits from the stems, blanch it, shock it and set aside in the ice water.
      Lightly grease a pan then add chopped bacon and thinly sliced onion.
      >if using smoked chunk in meat like turkey wings or pork hock, increase the amount of cooking fat appropriately.
      Set to low heat and let the bacon tender it's fat.
      >skip this step if using chunk meat
      Up the heat to high and lightly brown the onions then add the chopped, leafy kale parts with whatever water clings to them.
      >you may have to add kale in batches, waiting for the previous addition to wilt before adding the next one and letting it get contact with the pan bottom
      Once all the kale has been added, lower the heat and cook, tossing often, until tender and the potlikker is reduced out/clings to the leaves.
      If you like it Hispanicy, either add red chili in with the onion or do what I do: I freeze-dry my own chilies and crumble them in my hands to add at the end. For my kale, I use half a habanero or so (I sometimes adjust it up a notch or two) to about 18oz (about ½kg for you metric users) of leafy bits.

      sounds yum, may end up doing this, thanks.

It's hard to justify stuffing, mac, mash, and some kind of roast carrot or green beans when it's just you and 2-3 others alongside the bird.
    Also gotta see about getting publix to debone the bird for me. I definitely prefer it deboned but am shit at it.

    Smoked turkey and a bunch of stupid ass diet-restriction-friendly sides. I barely eat at my family's holiday meals anymore. I always go all out with the hors d'oeuvres by putting together a big charcuterie and the alcohol selection. I was thinking about making some ceviche this year too. I try to create a snack table that's both accessible and interactive. So all my options are centered around letting everyone DIY their plates. So I do the charcuterie, obviously, usually a bagel spread, and then set up some semi-prepared cocktails with recipe cards for people to follow. It goes over pretty well and I'm typically full before the soy enriched dinner.

      It’s a very important part of ‘the holidays.’ Mid November through mid January is a whimsical time. I understand skipping it if you don’t like your family but I hope you’re not lonely on the day.

      Thanksgiving sides are based but turkey fucking sucks. By far the worst meat. Even when it's cooked "properly" ham or beef blow it out of the water. Makes it even worse that most people have no clue how to cook a turkey and end up eating meat that you have to choke down with water.

      True, but it is tradition. Bird native to North America and all that. Dry brine and slathering it with herb butter ahead of the roast helps a lot. I like to make turkey dumpling soup on Saturday since I have all the ingredients already leftover from dinner.

Drink the rest while stirring every few minutes, it’s done when the cabbage is soft and most of the liquid has evaporated, maybe 20-30 minutes on medium low.

    Mom does turkey and stuffing, if she's really feeling it she'll take the drippings and off cuts and whip up some gravy between the Lions and Cowboys games. Dad makes the mashed potatoes, at least he peels all of them. Mom chops and boils them. He used to grab the mixer and mix in the butter and everything else. Recent years it's been a handoff, whoever's in the kitchen when they're ready does it. Last year it was me and I walked my niece and nephew through it. I do the vegetables. I try to change it up but corn is consistent, usually carrots, I like to make brussel sprouts when I can get good ones, green beans, sometimes sweet potatoes. I've done savory roasted with rosemary and garlic and candied with brown sugar and marshmallows(walnuts and dried cranberries once and it was great but basically a dessert). My one sister brings desserts and rolls but she doesn't do too much, buys some pies and might make a cobbler. My other sister can't do much so she brings the canned cranberries shit like napkins and disposable shit. Dad and I chip in for the booze, regular beers and some wine and maybe a bottle of scotch. Well, not maybe on the scotch. We always do but we might not bring it out til college football the Saturday after.

        She will never get a decent boyfriend if she doesn't step her game, yo.
        If she can't even make a decent grilled cheese sandwich, I would never crush her puss.

    Dunno. I'll make up the menu from whatever looks good next time I go to the store.

    Normally I do a pretty traditional Thanksgiving (did duck last year though), but my friends and I have been talking about wanting to make chankonabe and one of them is coming up to my city for Thanksgiving this year, so I think we're going to take a stab at making chanko. For those unaware, it's the hearty stew sumos eat on a daily basis. As I type this out I realize the November sumo basho will be happening at the same time as Thanksgiving, which is cool.

    I'll probably also cook up some standard T-gives sides like green bean casserole, cranberry sauce, stuffing, bacon-wrapped roasted carrots.

      I loved doing friendsgiving in college. I moved to the New England from SoCal and couldn’t afford tickets home for such a short break. Turns out a lot of people at New England schools live nearby so campus was very empty and kind of lonely at any holiday. Some people in the same situation as me got together to make a traditional potluck and we started inviting international students who had no idea where everyone else went. We’d ask them to make something from their home country

      It was really nice
