Yeah, the food is nice. Every year I say or think "That was so good, I should learn how to make it" and then suddenly a year has passed and I'm saying it again
I miss family gatherings even if they were all faking kindness while secretly hating each other. The facade was strong enough to make it enjoyable for a while. My mother cooking with firewood, my cousins who I rarely see, all the love from my grandparents... This doesn't exist anymore.
You could always ask people in the cooking thread how to make the Thanksgiving stuff.
Also I always feel a bit useless when it comes to Thanksgiving because everyone has their own special dish and I have nothing...
Well we don't have Thanksgiving where I live but I like turkey and it is rather uncommon and expensive here so it would be cool to have a day set aside for eating it, and I'd never complain about getting a holiday either.
There's this sweet potato with coconut topping side dish that tastes like a desert yet we eat it with dinner.
It's pretty nice and sweet.
When I was a kid it was the pies, but as I've grown older I've really switched to preferring that umami flavor so I like turkey and mashed potatoes, both with gravy, the most.
So much work involved with the turkey and gravy... it's a shame I can't have it more often.
Always only ate white. The dark meat was too greasy and gross-looking to me by comparison, but my grandpa loved it
Dark meat is a lot more tender and if I'm just eating the turkey I'll pick dark. However for stuff like soup or sandwiches I'll go with the white meat.
The light meat is generally dry-ish, after a bit (if it was cooked correctly). The dark meat is what you want if you're looking for something more juicy.
I think so, and that's why there's gravy for it
Better than Thanksgiving dinner is post-thanksgiving soup
I'm in a similar boat except I still love the pies.
