    Thanksgiving

    Do you celebrate Thanksgiving? If so, what do you do? and most importantly...what do you cook?

    it is more like family gathering and good meal but not turkey.

      Re: Thanksgiving

      Its a fun meal and a day off for everyone. I LOVE Thanksgiving dinners!!!

      I don't think any of us really like turkey so we don't make it. We roast whole chickens instead.

      What we do make is everything else...

      Stuffing (I am looking for a new recipe this year)

      Roasted/mashed potatoes

      Veggies like corn/asparagus/peas

      Cornbread

      Dessert (varies from year to year)

        Nope, don't celebrate it at all.

            I think it was only once we roasted a turkey.....I don't like it as I find it saltier and drier than chicken.

            Usually we make baked chicken or some other dish (biryani or nihari, etc).....but it's not because we're celebrating Thanksgiving....but rather because my dad usually enjoys cooking on breaks and weekends.

                Turkey is hard to make RV...it just doesn't taste right unless you really know what you're doing. And let's face it, desi people don't cook turkey.

                      I've had non-desi turkey too. Just not a fan of turkey. It's not horrible...I just like the texture and taste of chicken better.
