Favorite: Spinach casserole (basically spinach, cream cheese, and Pepperidge Farm seasoned breadcrumbs mixed together and baked with more breadcrumbs and butter on top.) I could eat it every day for the rest of my life.
Leftover: I'm with everyone else on the sandwiches!
Non-traditional: I am VERY traditional about my holiday meals. DH's dad always makes ratatouille...WHY??!?!!?!?! I feel bad, but I have never put even a tiny bit on my plate. That said, I'm sure our traditions are not the same as everyone else's...anybody else make pineapple rings with yams and marshmallows? Those are my second favorite (and amazing the next day too!)
That explains why I can't come up with a favorite left over!

I wish we had thanks giving. I always felt it was a prelude to Christmas :-)
But I'll do my Christmas dinner too like Wendy :-) And I'll sound like a typical Britt with all sorts of stuff you've never heard of :lol:
Turkey is my favourite dish. It's the only day of the year we actually eat it and I really enjoy it
Left over Christmas pudding and brandy butter YUMMY!!
And we don't do anything that's not traditional. Actually my mum never did any Yorkshire puddings with dinner and I always do :lol:
Sarah that meal sounds normal for me. Seafood is popular here for Christmas, my family tried it once and decided it was wrong. My Nan a makes the best Yorkshire, mMum makes terrible Yorkshire and i may OK Yorkshire, Nan a says it's because you need English blood, she was born and raised in England, Mum wasn't and I have some diluted blood is her reasoning
My husband told me the #1 thing we're missing this year is Brandy Slush. It's a frozen drink with lots of apricot brandy. Very yummy. We may have drank a lot of that stuff one year back in Vegas. Guess I'll be making that for Christmas too. I feel like our Christmas is turning into Thanksgiving Take 2.
1. What is your favorite Thanksgiving day dish? Corn cut off the cob that my brother freezed & saved OR my Mom's noodles
2. What is your favorite left over? Cold Turkey. Anyway shape or form.
3. Do you have anything special in your family that maybe is not traditionally a Thanksgiving dish? When my Gma was alive, fruit salad.
Erin, my sister made the gravy recipe as a vegetarian option since we have a lot of vegetarians in our crowd. It is super delicious, I think I could eat it straight! Way better than turkey gravy IMO. I have a vegetarian patty recipe made with walnuts, oatmeal and a lot of the seasonings in this gravy recipe that I usually top with canned mushroom soup but I think this gravy would be way yummier over it so I'm going to start using this instead. TFS!
Favorite: My mom's deviled eggs
Leftover: Anything that means I don't have to cook that night.
Non-traditional: Well, both are sort of traditional for our family, but not for anyone else necessarily. We always have chicken noodles as a side, and my mom's cut-out sugar cookies shaped like turkeys.
Woohoo! Everybody thinks I'm lying when I say its better than meat-based gravy. I'm glad you liked it!
