    Quietann: Their house is a fascinating old farmhouse, but they keep it just warm enough so the pipes don't freeze. MIL burns secret fires in the woodstove after FIL goes to bed, so the kitchen at least is warm in the evenings

    Quietann, does their farmhouse have the cool old crooked window going up the stairs to the second floor? I'm always so bummed when I see farmhouses in VT or Maine with either a new energy-efficient window replacement there or worse, an upright window in that spot. I just love those old wavy-glassed 2 over 2's!

    And do you need tiny feet and supplemental oxygen to climb the stairway?

    Great OP

    Family is out of town this year, so we are going to a friend's house. I'm bringing Apple Cider and Sea Salt Caramels and Chocolate Covered Pomegranate Seeds.

    In case we're still hungry I made braised short ribs yesterday, and will serve with garlic mashed taters. Scalloped apples and pears for dessert.

    Happy Thanksgiving, everyone

    I'm making chicken Sambar this year, but have been hearing on the radio that Durham, NC, hosts the largest vegetarian Thanksgiving meal in the USA-- without even BUTTER-- and it's fantastic. I'm thinking that's where I want to be next year.

    Guess what-- I'm not exactly traditional-- at least not now! I did 25years+ of turkey, pies, etc., all like grandma's. Now the kids are grown and gone far, far away, and I intend to explore the silver lining.

    I think Grandma would approve. She died on her 3rd trip around the world-- broke her hip reveling in a storm off the Great Barrier reef, Australia and succumbed to a blood clot.

    I will be tagging along with my farm owner to her Dad/Stepmother's house. They kindly feed me every Thanksgiving and Christmas. All the traditional stuff plus plenty of good snacks and some cracking Grandparents who love to give everyone a hard time!

    For the first time in years I am NOT cooking or going anywhere. DH and I will stay home, drink good wine and eat a homemade pizza while watching the game and/or a movie. Then read a good book. BLISS.

    No worries, Tha Ridge. It's a passive aggressive weenie cotillion member, anytime you post an opinion in a "controversial" thread, they go find all recent posts under ones member name and thumbs down all of them to "get their point across" LOL!!

    In the meanwhile, the sane and happy folks go on enjoying our day

    On COTH 17 out of 18 thumbs ups would be considered close to a record!

    Could we do some baked potato casserole to the fore as well???

    I just had that for breakfast! Sliced taters, ham, and green onions in a sour cream cheese sauce.
