    What's on the menu for Thanksgiving

    So what's on the Thanksgiving menu for everyone?

    Here:
    Wednesday: Pork Belly, fresh green beans and other veg.
    Thursday: Free range chicken, pumpkin muffins (using plantain flour), veg and sweet potato hash browns.
    Friday: Fajitas using some local skirt steak, sauteed onion - peppers, homemade pico, habanera pepper sauce, tortillas from plantain flour.

    For dessert here, organic dried mangoes, I hate fresh mango, but I will take the dried over any dessert I could get

    With dietary changes here, I have gotten more creative and can back now with plantain four

    It isn't Thanksgiving or Christmas without my Aunt's Philippine Lumpia; other than that ours tends to be a traditional New England style dinner. Turkey, Stuffing, Potatoes(mashed), Squash, Turnip, etc. Not particularly exciting, but family is important and its a good excuse to get together.

    I'll be smoking a turkey, pork butt and bacon. Making venison chili and Mom's favorite, sugar cream pie. The menu goes on and on. That's just what I'm responsible for.

    Texkev, I'm interested in how you'll be fixing your belly. Recipe?

    I just sear mine off with some salt and pepper, then I like it cut in thick slices and baked. Turns out to be super thick pieces of crispy bacon fat.

    My wife likes her in larger chunks.

    I am just learning how to cook it. no expert on pork belly for sure yet if you have any tips happy to hear them

    Pretty much your traditional Thanksgiving dinner for upstate NY, except we don't do the whole turkey:

    2 turkey breast grilled outside, ham with brown sugar glaze, garlic mashed potatoes, sweet potato casserole, stuffing, coleslaw,(Gizmo2 makes a mean coleslaw, and yea he does help with the meal, its food!!! ), green bean casserole, carrot and lemon jello salad, rolls, cranberry sauce, pickles, & olives. Not sure of desserts as my sister is in charge of bringing that.

    I got a question for you northern folks...I grew up about 3 miles from the Quebec/NY border and I can vaguely remember my parents taking snow and drizzling homemade maple syrup over it as a Thanksgiving treat. Can anyone refresh my memory on the name of this (Snow cone?) and how to actually make it?

    I will smoke a wild turkey with chunk charcoal and some fresh hickory on the Egg.
    Bought some cranberry wine for the family and I might even give it a try.

    All the other fixins are up to the others.
