We just stayed home. My stepson was at his mom's this year so it didn't feel like Thanksgiving but it was a decent day. I don't like sweet potatoes either, that's all hubby and the kids. We haven't eaten any pumpkin pie yet either, maybe later before bed. We ended up with no turkey also. We cooked it longer then suggested. The internal temp was right. It looked cooked but it tasted raw. It was either bad before cooking it or it was never thawed completely. Owell, everything else was great so it wasn't a total bust. We just wasted our time making an inedible turkey.

Turkey seems better when you cook it with the stuffing in it. About 30 minutes per pound I believe. I like to get the ones that has the button that pops up cause they tend to have minds of their own. Putting them in tent helps too in magnifying the heat they receive. Ya, oh well. Live and learn. You could probably roast it a bit more cut up in the oven. Same the meat that way. Or put it in soup. It is thawed now. hehe

We cooked it longer then we were supposed too and it had the pop-up thing in it. It popped too. I don't do the stuffing inside the bird. We did the tent too and cut it up to and cooked it for another 1/2 hour. It looked done and the internal temperature was higher then suggested so we did everything right. It just tasted raw, which means that it was probably bad before we even cooked it.

It's great to see you! Well, we had turkey, although I didn't eat but one piece of it. We also had stuffing, tabouli, rolls, pinto beans, green beans, broccoli, brisket, and several kinds of desserts (although no pumpkin pie). I pretty much stuck to the dressing and tabouli. The dressing was the best I'd had in years. You had deviled eggs, I'm jealous!

Hi Hon! Nice to see you too! Sounds yummy. What is Tabouli? I've never heard of it. I make deviled eggs for EVERY holiday even if we go to someone else's house. I have my own secret recipe. It's the only way that I like them. I actually didn't even eat any pumpkin pie until tonight (Saturday). It was pretty good. Our turkey was bad so no one ate it. Everything else was REALLY good though, so it didn't even matter that we didn't have the turkey.

Hi camomom! I hope you had a great thanksgiving. Today my menu consisted of turkey, mashed potatoes, gravy, green bean casserole, homemade mac&cheese, deviled eggs, stuffing, sweet potatoe casserole with marshmallows on top, pasta salad, rolls, apple pie and pumpkin pie. I forgot to get the pasta salad out of the frig so no one got any of that...more for us!

It didn't matter much though, everything else was so good that we didn't miss it. I did forget to buy pickles and olives, which we always have for Thanksgiving but I think I'm the only one that really cared about that. I hope your day was good also.

The size of the Turkey will determine how long to cook it. I cook mine upside down for the majority of the time and then when there's about an hour left, I flip it over. I take the guts out before cooking and I don't stuff it. I put 1 stick of butter inside with a large onion. I drizzle melted butter and honey over it before cooking also. Then I add salt, pepper, thyme and oregano on it. Baste it every 1/2 hour. I also like to inject the juices into the meat a few times during cooking. Check the web or any cookbook for temperatures and times based on the size of the bird. I normally love my turkey but we ended up without one this year. We cooked it longer then suggested, The internal temp was right after cooking it, It looked cooked but it tasted raw. It was either bad before cooking it or it was never thawed completely. Owell, everything else was great so it wasn't a total bust. We just wasted our time making an inedible turkey.

I wasn't aware you couldn't get turkey in India. Interesting. If it makes you feel better, We ended up with no turkey today afterall. We cooked it longer then suggested. The internal temperature was right. It looked cooked but it tasted raw. It was either bad before cooking it or it was never thawed completely. Owell, everything else was great so it wasn't a total bust. We just wasted our time making an inedible turkey.

Happy Thanksgiving to you too! Turkey, mashed potatoes and gravy, green bean casserole, candies yams, cranberry sauce and pumpkin pie, and crescent rolls. In addition we have some veggie trays out to snack until the meal. I am baking a coconut custard pie. His sister is baking zucchini bread and pumpkin cookies as well. The family will be here around 4 pm. Marsha
