i was wondering what kinds of special recipes everyone here cooks for their Thanksgiving dinner. I was wondering if anyone here ever tried mustards like Grey Poupon Mustard and incorporated with their hollliday turkey or ham. i hear that a product like mustard works really well w/ those type of meat.s

Well, we don't do thanksgiving over here. The problem then is that retailers start putting up Christmas trees and fake snow around the end of August. At least you guys get something to keep them at bay until November!

So we don't have a turkey or ham :( But I do like mustard Especially French.

I'd love to have celebrate a Thanksgiving in the States, I think it is one of the best holidays, and unfortuneatly we dont get it over here. However on the 22nd we're going to have a sort of Thanksgiving party, my girlfriend and I are going to cook for our friends! We're still considering a Turkey and all the other stuff (Apple Pie mmm) but we're not sure yet...

I see by your profile that you "work with Grey Poupon Mustard". I just gotta ask... Does that mean you work for the company or you make a living by spreading it on sandwiches?

Assuming (I know, one should never assume) that you work for the company, are you looking for recipes? (Using dijon mustard, of course.) If so, are they recipes that are only related to the main meat dish or any part of the meal?

If you ever visit Wisconsin, you should stop by The Mustad Museum in Mount Horeb. Yup, you can find Greay Poupon there.

No Thanksgiving dinner is complete without pumpkin pie - minus the use of mustard in it.

Here we go again, OLD people rambling on about pies.....

but yes, pumpkin pie is essential for Thanksgiving!

My family makes a mustard/brown sugar glaze to put on ham but thats as close as I can get for you on the mustard use!

James, doesn't Australia Day, your national holiday, commemorate the establishment of a penal colony at Port Jackson? Seems a stretch that Americans would whoop it up now that prisoners finally arrived on the far off shores of Australia. We do light up the skies on our Independence Day.

Let us review. America celebrates the day we declared our independence from Great Britain(July 4). Had to fight two wars to get the buggers to leave. Australia's national holiday (Jan. 26TH), celebrates the day the Brits landed on its shores with a boatload of prisoners. I will leave it to the TP membership which holiday makes the most sense.

I'd wait until next week if you are planning an invasion... If you show up on Thursday, you'll be so stuffed with food that you won't be able to move. If you show up on Friday, you'll be swept up by the hordes of holiday shoppers and whisked into Bloomingdales, JC Penneys and WalMart. Oh, and you'll be stuffed full of leftover food from Thursday. (It's also the day we are invading Canuckistan.)

Please accept this complimentary jar of Grey Poupon mustard as a peace offering.
