Turkey and Pumpkin Pie (with Cool Whip) are essentials for a good Thanksgiving! However, over here they don't have canned pumpkin which is just a sin. I had to have my mom bring some with her when I saw her in Italy. Canned pumpkin is a neccesity for a delicious Pumpkin Pie. At my crazy home on the mountain, those of us from the States are doing a Thanksgiving feast, but we're also including the Canadians as they were lazy and didn't do anything for theirs I'm also making a Cornbread Casserole first introduced to me by a fellow Iowan roommate who had the same name as me (incidentally we were roommates in Indiana just by chance). It is very, very yummy and if anyone wants the recipe I can send it to you

I just finished 2 pumpkin pies made from pumpkin I cooked down to make pulp... Does that count as "delicious" also?? Tomorrow, I'm doing 2 pecan pies and an apple pie. Sorry Wonkerer, we're having homemade vanilla ice cream and "real" whipped cream with our pies. (Talked my brother-in-law into getting a container of whipping cream instead of a can of Redi-whip.) My ice cream maker died just as I was starting the freezing process but we figured out a way to make it work with the hand mixer. The ice cream turned out perfectly.

Cornbread casserole??? RECIPE PLEASE!!!!!!!!! When I host Thanksgiving I do a corn pudding (glorified scalloped corn). Is cornbread casserole anything close to the same? (Corn pudding with a cornbread topping? Just a guess...)

No green bean casserole?? (We're not having it either.) A close friend is invited to T-Day and she wanted to bring either the green bean casserole or roasted brussel sprouts. My sister-in-law voted for the sprouts since she'd never had them roasted before. (And it's being held at their house.) We are having sauerkraut though, which most people find odd. It's a German thing from my mother. It helps cut the greasiness of the turkey. What was frowned upon the first time I served it has become a "tradition".

ps: How was lunch with Nikki and Phil??

I know but I just couldn't help myself because they were soooo good!!! I've also just finished 2 pecan and 1 apple pie. Boy, they were just as tasty as the pumpkin ones.

I'll see what I can do about getting you a piece of pie or two. The apple is spoken for and I only made one to take to turkey day dinner. I do have a pumpkin and a pecan that will remain here.

Psst! Do you accept overseas help in eating those? If yes, please send them first class to you-know-where.

Rather than start a new thread, may I just wish all the Americans here a jolly ol' Thanksgiving!! Don't eat too much turkey! I've actually got a Thanksgiving dinner planned too with some American friends but we set it to next Thursday due to busy schedules. Either way I get turkey, so I'm not complaining! No turkey for Christmas here in Norway, so have to enjoy it when you can

Have a great day and don't shop too much tomorrow!!
