We are having the traditional items, Turkey, Mashed Potatoes, cranberry sauce, stuffing, corn and rolls.

I usually make my turkey a bit different, I fill it with lemons and spices, then fill the cavity with white wine, and cover the whole thing with foil. The wine steams the turkey from the inside, carrying the spices and lemon zest with it, and the oven cooks it from the outside. Uncover it about 30 minutes before it should be done, and baste with butter to help it brown up. Keeps it so moist, it's hard to believe it's turkey!

What are you guys having?

My wife and my extended families will be getting together, so there will be ton of the usual stuff. My favorite dessert is pecan pie, which my mom will be bringing. I'm contributing corn bread muffins, which seems redundant since we'll already have hot rolls, but hey, they're easy to make.

As per usual, my plate will be very 'blond' as I will have ample helpings of noodles, mashed potatoes, corn, a roll, turkey, a deviled egg and likely some mac n cheese. For color, I might add some ham.

We live pretty far from any relatives, so it's always just me and the wife on Thanksgiving. A full spread would be pretty silly, so we do Cornish game hens with my mom's oyster stuffing and mashed potatoes with gravy. Pumpkin pie with fresh whipped cream for dessert. Doesn't sound like a lot, but for just two people it's more than enough.

We do all the staples - turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes, yams, corn, peas, rolls, and cranberry sauce. The only change this year is that I'm attempting real cranberry sauce - no "jellied-in-the-can" sauce that invariably slides off the plate and gives the dog an early treat this year. We never do pumpkin pie since I'm the only one who likes it, so it's usually a cheesecake and some other creation - this year, a peanut butter ice cream pie with chocolate coating.

Curry chicken pita for lunch, and probably sandwiches for supper. Happy Thursday, Canadians!

I made a pumpkin cheesecake that was a hit at my brother's place last night. It ruined me on pumpkin pie now because my cheesecake was so much better.

Always the same at my house, because that's the way we all like it:

Butterball turkey
Stove Top stuffing
Mashed potatos
Blueberry muffins
Pumpkin pie
Cherry pie
Different types of pop to drink

It will be basically the same as it's been the last couple of Thanksgiving. At home, since it's just me, my mom, & my sister, we keep it simple. We'll have a ham (not turkey fans), a pasta dish (this year lasanga), salad, and a dessert. My mom also makes shrimp cocktail, but decided against it this year since I have to go to work early. At work is where I'll usually have the more traditional dinner. Still don't eat turkey though: I go for the prime rib. I'll also have mashed potatoes, mixed veggies, lots and lots of stuffing, and some pecan and pumpkin pie to finish it off.

I was surprised to come home and find out that my mom and dad were having my grandparents, four uncles and three aunts over for Thanksgiving. Especially with the size of our place. It was the usual stuff: Turkey, Stuffing, Peas, Corn, Cranberry Sauce, Homemade Rolls and Pumpkin Bread, Fruit Salad, Pumpkin Pie (with homemade whipped cream!), Pickles and Olives, Mashed Potatoes, and Sweet Potatoes (with marshmallows on top).

All the usuals, with the colorful additions of balsamic marinated tomato wedges and caesar salad.

Harry: That's a special feeling.

With Thanksgiving being tomorrow, I'm interested in hearing what people are planning on preparing for their respective dinners.

Is there a go too dish you're expected to bring each year?

This year, it seems we've got the monopoly on green bean casserole.

Feel free to add recipes also if you would like.

Have a safe and happy Thanksgiving.

I am in charge of eating.

My wife, however, makes a mean corning pudding. I don't know the exact recipe, but I know it's corn bread mix, can of creamed corn and butter and then in the over. It's awesome. I have had other peoples, but hers rulz.

I am making Salsa tomorrow morning for the football games.

We'll be back right after order has been restored here in the Omni Center.

As for me, I'm making the stuffing and a green bean casserole - I'm going on my third of fourth year of that being my contribution to the family meal and people are starting to develop expectations around it.

I attempted homemade cranberry sauce for the first time last year, and this year it's doing an encore. The only change is, a friend of mine mentioned adding a handful of blueberries while the cranberries are reducing, and throwing in a jigger of rum. The peanut butter ice cream pie was also well-received as an alternative for the people who don't like pumpkin pie. However, since it's going to be cold and wet tomorrow, ice cream was scrapped in favor of double peanut butter-chocolate brownies (fancy term for Betty Crocker brownies with peanut butter/chocolate chips mixed in).
