Happy Thanksgiving!

Today is a travel day. I cooked a turkey dinner at home a couple of weeks ago. I cooked the bird on the grill using the rotisserie, mushroom and corn bread stuffing, and gravy. I got another turkey from work yesterday, so we do it again. Good thing I like turkey.

Turkey Nightmare!

Just got back home From the stores. Kids are hogging the TV so here I am at the tractor forum. Wife put the turkey in a leaky roasting pan..... smoked up the house and set off the fire alarms! I opened up windows and turned on fans. My eyes were burning from all the smoke... so I went to the store to get a new roasting pan (or to get out for awhile) The store was out of them..... went to another store and they were out of them too. The 3rd store was miles away but they had them, so 1-1/2 hrs later I am back home.... at least the smoke has had time to clear. Has anyone ate turkey that all the jucies have leaked out of? May be kind of dry..... I don't care though.... By the time that bird is cooked, I will be toasted myself.

We are still recovering from the "herd" that we had over our house for turkey day.

Here are the numbers:

4 Turkeys (82lbs before cooking)
25 lbs of potatos
10 lbs of bread stuffing
3 pots of meat stuffing

God knows how much cranberry

7 apple pies
3 pumpkin pies
11 lbs of shrimp
12 cases of beer (still have four left)
10 bottles of wine (none left)

Total number of people:82

We had my family (total of 20 people)
my aunts and uncles and their families (about another 30) and my wifes family (12 people) Add in the others (friends, etc) it adds up really quick.

Thank God they don't show up all at once and all brought something.

Unfortunately, they all should have taken home some leftovers.

We do this twice a year. Thanksgiving and 4th of July. Really not that bad as long as they don't come at the same time.

It is more grazing than an actual meal. Everyone starts to show up around 10AM and usually stay til around midnight. They pick from a "buffet" that we keep on our kitchen counters.

We alternate whose house eash holiday is at. We do Turkey day and 4th of July, My folks do Christmas (usually over 100 people!!), my cousin does New Years and my uncle does Memorial Day. We also went through almost two propane cylinders as well.

We are going to Philadelphia to eat with my Filipino wife's relatives. The last time I did that, we had takeout Pizza:dazed: This will be different relatives and I had better see some turkey and mashed potatos, and some pumpkin pie! And no dried fish, or over cooked veggies. I'm getting a free turkey tonight on the way home from work, that I'll be cooking on Saturday. I did the whole dinner a couple of years ago when my wife was working, but it was for just 4 people. The 15 pound turkey made for a lot of good leftovers!
