Just curious as to what you are having for Thanksgiving dinner. We are having:

Stuffed Flank Steak (a tradition we started a few years ago after both kids moved out and it is just the two of us).

Gravy

Mashed Potatoes

Corn Casserole

Peas

Cranberry Sauce

Pumpkin Pie

Wine.........lots of wine (Sutter Home White Zinfandel) :shh: :wine:

What time's dinner.

Probably turkey at both folks house, One on Thursday and one on friday.

We were supposed to have it at my sisters new house in Central NY, but the weather is really bad and she was driving from CT to here (About 6+ hours), she cancelled. I don't blame her.

SuperBeetle,

Do you roll the flank steak around your stuffing ingredients or carefully make a pocket inside the thicker end of it? I'm just curious as flank steak is a favorite cut to cook with as it is so versatile.

tvb,
The meat is rolled around the stuffing and then sewn shut. It is then cooked it in a pressure cooker. We (I should really say my lovely wife) ;) have done this with Cube Steak as well. My Cube Steak however, is not like what you buy in most stores.

I have a turkey here that I raised but it's too big for just the 4 of us, normally the whole family gets together but not this year. We're having ham.

Hey NEPA residents do you have Potato Filling? Just wondering as my daughter lives in Strausstown and that stuff seems very popular in that area. I had never heard of it until she moved there a few years ago.

We're having a traditional dinner, but lots of people around here are having lobster. It's less than $5 a pound retail right now. If you can buy it from the boat you can get it for just over $2.

Turkey at the inlaw's, not sure if it'll be roasted or fried. (Hopefully roasted)
Spiral cut ham

"Fat Bastard" baked clam dip
Roasted taters
string beans with almonds
Glazed carrots
Baked sweet potato and apple "cassarole"

Apple pie homemade by grandma. Real pie - apples, sugar, butter, and salt!

Large selection of odd named dark beers that all taste skunked to me... I bring a 12 pack of Rolling Rock or Yuengling for personal use.

Freddy...
Whats the addy of that lobster boat? $2 $2 $2 Cheap as gasoiline :)
I am heading to Maine as soon as I eat this afternoon with a bunch of ice chests and going to corner the local lobster market !!!! :D
Standard Turkey Day here today. If I carried a shotgun I could have had fresh wild turkey yesterday. We are getting overrun with the featherd friends around here it seems .Sure is nice to see them often and even better to see the American Eagle making a strong comeback in our area . Home we can keep the "trophy hunters"(Where are the game wardens when you need one?)from shooting them before they can get a real foothold . They sure are majestic birds . No wonder they are the symbol of our great nation.
Too bad we have run by a "Bunch Of Turkeys" for so long :oops: !!

I had potato filling at the Landingville fire company. They make it with meals for weddings and things like that. Good stuff!

Mom made stuffed steak in the past, I don't think for Thanksgiving though. Have you ever made stuffed heart? Stuff the heart chambers with stuffing and roast it in the oven.

Today we will have turkey and all the usual stuff that goes with it.

Stop it! You're all making me hungry. :)

Be careful what you wish for! Wild turkeys are protected around here, only a very short hunting season. It used to be a special treat to see one, now they over run everywhere & leave poop a foot deep. They'll make a hellofa mess in your yard. I'd kill every one of the fat slobs if given the chance.....and I'm an animal lover!

Lobster.... go down to Southwest Harbor & park at the dock. When a boat comes in, plug your nose as you go past the bait buckets and yell to the captain as if you're an old friend and have bought from him before. Don't go asking the price, just bring your own container & tell him how many pounds of what size. Have green cash showing in your hand. If he thinks he's sold to you before he'll charge you wholesale, if he thinks you're a tourist he'll charge you retail. Either price is a good deal right now. Good luck!
