Only in America do people end up in the ER from cooking a thanksgiving turkey. 😱
Exploding batteries? Nah, exploding turkey.

I blame the internet. For example, someone in an area where frying turkey isn't common sees a video of someone in New Orleans frying a turkey. The person goes and gets a turkey frying kit and goes to frying without more research. Versus, someone in New Orleans frying a turkey for the first time will have loads of hands-on instructions. Most of the butcher shops here fry turkeys inside their shops and I haven't heard of an issue that makes the news.

Reloading isn't for everyone either

I believe that cranberry sauce will be a Holiday staple around here for years to come.

A relatively new staple is a creamy corn casserole.

Just mix the ingredients together and bake at 350 for 45 minutes
  • 1 (15 ounce) can whole kernel corn, drained


  • 1 (14.75 ounce) can creamed corn


  • 1 (8.5 ounce) package dry cornbread mix


  • 1 cup sour cream


  • ½ cup butter, melted


  • 2 eggs, beaten

Did the thanksgiving two-step, yesterday. With family and friends, it was a good few hours.

Made a couple of pumpkin pies. No photos, this time around.


Crust -- Crushed walnuts.
Filling -- Butternut squash and pumpkin; heavy whipping cream; blackstrap molasses; eggs; a dash or two of salt; and a blend of freshly-ground spices (cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice, cloves, cardamom).
Crust baked first, cooled, then the whole pie baked.
Topped with freshly-whipped cream.

Yum.

Post meal prep trash fits neatly in the coating shake bag.

This one is not a cooking idea but a cleanup one.
You're done and have some liquids to dump that has stuff in it you don't want to put in the drain, like a stew so you try to strain it one way or another. Say you don't want to dirty up a colander .

The top portion of a plastic bottle cut off at the shoulder. Drill holes in the cap.

Instant colander that can be re-used or tossed.

Everything has to come together to cook eggs like this. You can drop the yolk in last to mimic, but these were cracked in the pan all at once

Sometimes with ex-large eggs I'll get double yokes. But, nowadays we're paying premium for jumbo size, and "large" heck they look like medium size..

Lasagna like casserole.
All the lasagna fixins with different pasta.
Sautéed onion, and ground beef seasoned with Grill Mates "Brown Sugar Bourbon". When the meat was done, it was mixed into a jar of Prego "Garlic and Herbs" sauce, and sauteed a little bit, with an ounce or two of red wine.

A cup of shredded mozzarella a cup of three cheese mexican, and a cup of Ricotta cheese seasoned with salt and nutmeg.

Just like lasagna, it tastes good, hot or cold.

I made a butt end ham for Easter Dinner. After cooking, I froze the butt end bone with a good amount of meat on it. Monday, I decided that I wanted to make room in the freezer, and out came the ham.

A bag of rinsed split peas, a diced onion, and the ham was all that was needed with IIRC 6 cups of water. I gave a nice sized portion to my neighbor.

Pea soup!
