1. Do you do ham or turkey or both or for some odd reason something else like duck or filets or rack of lamb? I do both ham and turkey (well not me, but my good ole pop hosts us all)
2. Do you do your "formal sitting" (at the table) at 12 pm ish or 3 pm is or 6 pm ish? We go at it like a pack of wolves about 2:30 ish.
3. What is you must have side dish? I will go with 2.....Sweet potato casserole with tons of brown sugar and marshmellows and of couse lots of dressing and gravy.
4. Anything odd or unique that you and yours do on Thanksgiving that you would like to share? I dont really have one yet but I am sure something odd will happen when you get that much family together tomorrow.
Got to work from 7am to 8pm this Thanksgiving. But if I were at my inlaws like the rest of my family will be....
1. Ham, turkey, and a BBQ butt
2. Free for all. Usually fix a plate and sit in their huge den and watch football.
3. Sweet potato casserole is the best side dish EVER!
4. We normally get together without fighting or arguing. That's kinda odd.
BUTCH IS NOT FOR THE FAINT OF HEART. GO VOLS!
I like the addition of the BBQ butt.
We do an appetizer that is a bit different. Well buttered english muffins halves with crab on them and broiled/ toasted
1) Turkey and sometimes Ham...depends on how many people are eating. Usually just turkey
2) Not formal. Some sit at the table, some sit in the living room watching football. it's usually done in the late afternoon
3) Mom's homemade Mashed Potatoes and STRING BEAN CASSEROLE!!
4) Don't know if its "odd" or "unique" but there's almost assuredly going to be a screaming match at some point in the evening. I come from the most dysfunctional family in the world, so Thanksgiving without some heated arguments just isn't Thanksgiving.
1.Turkey and ham.
2. Very informal
3. Sweet potato casserole is a must with brown sugar and pecans on top and a second one with marshmallow on top for the kids.
4. Corn bread dressing (never stuffing) , deviled eggs, broccoli salad, green beans, pistachio salad, cranberry relish are all a must.
While I was there, I noticed most of the tables had ordered small dishes of the restaurant's famous sweet potatoes and people were going batty over it. My favorite way to eat sweet potatoes is simply baked, with butter in the middle. But casseroles are the thing on the holidays and this recipe is quite popular, judging by the Internet requests for it. I used the orange fleshed garnet yam, which is actually a sweet potato. source: (Ruth's Chris Steakhouse)

Oh yeah- chocolate pie and coconut cake for dessert
Dessert for me has to be Chess Pie...i LOVE that stuff
"Count it down with me. Five, four, three, two, one.
The national champion is clad in Big Orange!"
I'll eat Spam in a can as long as I don't have to go to my in laws.
But anymore we go more traditional which just makes me miss chicken and dumplings more and more every year. No one made them better than my grandmother did.

Love deviled eggs......pistachio salad intrigues me......I dig the relish with ham........the canned jelatin stuff is weak. I think my dad puts chopped apples in his relish.
We always had pecan pie, oatmeal cake and a chess growing up.........after my nap from the 1st sitting
1. Ham, Turkey and a Roasted Hen for broth to make the cornbread dressing. UUUUUMMMMMH! 2. Not formal with 23 people around2-3pm. 3. Collard's 4. Football game and paintball war in the woods.

I like the idea of paintball on Thanksgiving. We toss football etc but I think we need to step it up a bit
I've got 13 children and grandchildren and we play at night with slingshots so 'the bruising' is not to bad. Lots of fun. We play 'gentle tackle' football during the day.
