    I have pretty much the same dinner yeah. On occasion we might throw a ham in there as well, but it's always nearly the same. We only do it thrice a year, so we don't get sick of it. Especially since Canadian Thanksgiving is in Oct, whereas American Thanksgiving is in Nov which is much closer to Christmas.

    Our main times to cook are Thanksgiving, Christmas and Easter. Of course we BBQ on Labor Day, Fourth of July, and Memorial Day...
    We, too, have practically the same menu for all 3 holidays, too.

    Last year I made stuffed mushroom, a recipe from SVZ, and everyone loved it and its been requested this year. I always make a mini-Thanksgiving for my husband and son since there is only three of us. Hubby and son have requested I do a turkey breast instead of buying a whole bird. Ill get a turkey breast from the deli and have them slice it up.
    For Christmas we get a Honey Glazed Ham. I just got my November issue of Rachael Ray's magazine and I think Ill make at least one of her recipes for something different.

    I cheat a little and order my turkey(s) from a restaurant-just don't have time to make 2 separate meals AND turkey, too...not that I am complaining-I love cooking for our families.
    Haven't gotten November's issue-must do that today after work...

    It's that time of the year again. What are the Canucks at GR cooking for Thanksgiving dinner? I'm toying with making Indian food this year since I have a great new Indian cookbook and everyone here likes Indian food. Of course, there will be pumpkin pie for dessert no matter what. I love pumpkin pie.

    Mmm, Indian food and pumpkin pie will go good together. The warmth of the spices should complement each other nicely

    I love pumpkin anything. This is the best time of year as far as food goes

    ^^I agree. I'm going to the farmer's market Saturday -- last day of the best outdoor one -- and get lots of fresh veggies and apples. So good.

    I know. I want to make butternut squash soup soon. I have a nice big one, plus an acorn squash. I have a great recipe for apple cheddar soup that I've never made but maybe that will happen the weekend after Thanskgiving.

    throw some damn cream cheese into the mashed taters.. it's fattening but oh so delicious. Gives them a nice twang.

    Don't put a ton, however.

    I have a friend who does that, only she puts a whole brick of the full fat variety in her taters. Non-fat sour cream in place of milk gives them a nice flavour, too. I like that with roasted garlic.

    I make my own stuffing with pork sausage in it - PB I believe you don't eat pork, but I really like my stuffing with it. Not to get into semantics again, but I bake mine outside of the bird to get a crust on it too.

    Mashed taters with roasted garlic, a gravy that takes forever to make but is heavenly, yams that are steamed then mashed then baked (no marshmallows!), brussel sprouts.

    We usually don't have dessert.

    I love butternut squash soup! I have a fabulous recipe from Cook's Illustrated.

    I LOVE pork but no, I don't eat it any more. My mother used to put pork sausage in her dressing, too. It has the best flavour, IMO. I'm almost thinking I should go traditional now, but I usually do that at Christmas. I do the baked yams thing as well -- love it.

    We always do one yam or sweet potato casserole with marshmellows and one without. I still love the one with. All the buttery brown sugar goodness.

    OK, I'm about to hit Marie Callendar's for some of this "home" cooking.
