Turkey Day

The traditional November dreariness continues here on Roundtop, making photography pretty much impossible for the moment. As it’s the day before "turkey day" here in the U.S., I decided to post a few of my Wild turkey photos to help start off the holiday.

Tomorrow I will be eating a traditional Thanksgiving meal, including turkey, though not wild turkey. To that we are adding baked corn using my grandmother’s recipe and made from local corn and eggs from my girls, apple crisp (my great-grandmother’s recipe) made from local apples for dessert, chestnut-sage stuffing, green beans, sweet potato casserole, homemade cranberry relish and probably a few other things. We will all eat too much and enjoy every minute of it.

If you are celebrating tomorrow, you do the same.

Happy Thanksgiving!!

It sounds delish! Would you share your baked corn recipe?

Enjoy the Thanksgiving day!

Lynne: There are about a billion baked corn recipes, using fresh corn, canned corn, dried corn. All are good. The one I think I'm using tomorrow is: defrost bag of frozen corn. In saucepan add corn, 3/4 cup milk, 1 (or two) egg, 1 TBS sugar, 1 TBS flour, salt and pepper to taste. Heat to near boiling. Remove from saucpan and put into a baking dish. Add up to 1 cup of grated sharp cheese. Cook at 350 for about 25 minutes or until a knife inserted at the center comes out clean. Heating everything on the stove first lessens the cooking time. If you don't heat on the stove, cooking time is about45 minutes.

Enjoy! Carolyn H.

Happy Thanksgiving to you, too, Carolyn. I'm also getting traditional feast ready—though I'm going to have to dash to the store for kosher salt for my turkey brine. Otherwise, baking and all the prep work I can do beforehand is finished.

One of these days—sometime after Thanksgiving when you have time—would you share the apple crisp recipe? I'd love to give it a try.

Anyway, from the riverbank to Roundtop…HAPPY THANKSGIVING!

P.S. I say "collect" one of those wild gobblers for a meal; they look delicious.

Ah turkey, stuffing and the Macy's parade equal a wonderful Thanksgiving in my book.

Hope you have a wonderful Thankgiving!!!

Lynne, Griz, Cathy, squirrel, Deb and everyone else!: I'll be back to blogging shortly, though perhaps not before the weekend is over. Ate too much to take photos today. I need to get out and walk for a bit!
