    Sweet potato, but with the same spices as pumpkin pie, not just nutmeg. Don't even make a pumpkin pie.

    Fair enough. Isn't maple syrup in the lasagna in Vermont? Heard it was mandatory with everything.

    Happy Thanksgiving Everybody!

    Not quite, but I'll try it with lasagna!
    One more Thanksgiving tradition, especially if you're having fun with wine, cocktails, etc: as you're cleaning up after The Big Meal, you discover a dish in the fridge you forgot to serve...when you're serving about ten dishes, this can happen.
    Christmas corollary to this is me finding a Christmas gift for Mrs Womble squirreled away in my closet some time in early January...d'oh!

    Expanding the question to what's on your Thanksgiving day table today? Here's our plan:

    Our turkey has been brined and injected with cajun butter. The injection featured no salt so as not to over-salt the bird after the brine. It's resting comfortably in the fridge until noon or so.

    We have a roasted garlic goat cheese log and candied jalapenos with cream cheese for cracker snacks throughout the day.

    Soup is a butternut squash with chipotle sauce garnish.

    Sides are a brown sugar butter casserole with some sweet potato underneath, garlic Parmesan mashed potatoes, and roasted brussel sprouts.

    I made a turkey stock Monday and kept the fat from the bone roast. Together, those will form the base for the gravy, along with butter and red wine and a few extra bits from the roast.

    Dessert is pumpkin pie and pecan bars.

    Should be a good day!

    I like both but if forced to choose - sweet potato.

    If we are listing all the trimmings, my perfect Thanksgiving meal today would include:

    Turkey (deep fried or smoked, when possible)
    Honey-baked Ham
    Green Bean Casserole
    Corn Casserole (my wife's recipe is to die for)
    Dressing (that is the proper name, not "stuffing")
    Mashed Potatoes and gravy
    Yams and/or Sweet Potato Casserole
    Yeast Rolls hot out of the oven with butter
    Sweet Potato Pie
    Chocolate Pecan (pee-cahn) Pie.

    No, I don't eat the cranberries. That's Yankee stuff.

    And if can manage, some Boiled Peanuts a bit later on in the day to top it all off.

    Much of the above. And for a couple of particularly fussy eaters... meatloaf with absolutely no veggies.

    I must pass this on. One of the Food Network “chefs” I was watching several years ago announced, “To make pe-CAHN pie we need PEE-cans.”

    Always a good occasion to take note of what a co-worker once told me: veggies are what food eats.

    Unsweetened pumpkin is a great food additive for your dog’s food. It aids in their digestion. We use it in one of our elderly dog’s meals, since he has pancreatitis.

    I guess it is probably good for human consumption, but I cannot personally confirm this.

    Unsweetened pumpkin is actually pretty disgusting. Edible, yes. Tasty, not even close.

    Sweet potato pie is way better than pumpkin pie, in my opinion.

    Happy to see Sweet Potato Pie - the superior Thanksgiving pie - being well represented here. Pumpkin pie does nothing for me.

    Wait, I didn't see you at our dinner table this evening...

    (You missed my born and raised NC wife's homemade cranberry sauce AND her cranberry congealed salad .)

    If Sweet Potato pie is the superior pie, then Pecan is the ultimate Thanksgiving pie.

    I'm probably being petty in another thread.
