Looks great Skip. About the Turkey, my family was never wild about it (mostly Mom) so when we moved to VA from ME, we were not around large family group so we had Lobster or Lamb. To add insult to injury, a restaurant I ran in FLA. we breiefly featured Thanksgiving every Sunday on our Brunch and we roasted and pulled 12-15 Turkeys each Sunday. Not a fan at all now.

I'm that way with French fries now because I made so many at my restaurant Jacks.

But dam if you don't have much money Turkey, bean soup, Cabbage are such cheap ways to eat.
You almost never see people you would think to be poor or any people buying those things these days.

Don't think they know how to cook em.

A ten dollar turkey will feed you 6 to 8 meals.

Glad people don't know how to cook em as this may be why the price of these items is so low.

Remember when flank steak was kinda cheap.

Beautiful Thanksgiving dinner Skip! Yes, Jello salad. My grandmother always brough green Jello with cottage cheese and pineapple to every family function, she brought it because "everyone loved it". But no one actually ATE it, we served it onto our plates and spread it around the plate so it looked like we ate it. She felt obligated to make it because everyone liked it, we felt obligated to act like we liked it because she made it. It was a vicious circle

That's funny as hell, Skip. My Wife and I always say "WTF" when the cooking shows talk about how cheap Flank is. My Wife's Teriyaki Steak recipe is a favorite of everyone who eats it, and is best w/ Flank. I just want to know "where" it's inexpensive.

Flank steak IS cheap. When you compare it to A5 Japanese Wagyu filet mignon

I am the Pho King! I like to put the ingredients out and let people fill their own bowl like Mongolian BBQ. Pour boiling broth over it, cover with a plate and let it sit about 5-10 minutes and it's perfectly done. I used some leftover diced pork loin, already cooked. Could have used some of that cheap thinly sliced raw flank steak.

"thinly sliced raw flank steak."

I saw an Asian cook cutting meat and he was doing that really thin wide slice that they do so I asked him why they do it that way.

It is done that way because it cooks faster, and it makes it more tender, also more easy to pick up with chopsticks, plus cutting it that way makes the meat look bigger.
You use less meat in a dish because you fluff up the meat by slicing it this way.

Very smart.

This will look a lot like my previous photos (and there was actually no "cooking" involved,) but what the heck:

Chocolate rum balls, Ginger rum balls, Peanut Butter balls, and Chocolate Haupia pie!




But this year there was an improvement. While it was always good, I never thought the pie was coconutty enough. So this year I scrapped the regular recipe and used Nui's haupia recipe instead (doubled, chocolate added to half for the bottom layer.) What a difference! Really good coconut flavor and just plain delicious. Plus, lifting the pie counts as a workout - that is one hefty dessert! Thanks for the recipe, David!

"Mayan Fudge" All items the Mayans had access to, not saying they would have put them together in fudge Dark chocolate, cinnamon, vanilla, coffee, pumpkin seeds and cayenne pepper (yes, they have a slowly building burn).

I was pretty tasty Hilda

My Walmart expanded their Indian food selection so I picked up a Jalfrezi curry sauce. Cooked some chicken, carrots, broccoli, and potatoes with it. Pretty good for a quick meal. It was good in the jar but got a little washed out when added to the other ingredients.

Looks delicious Hilda!

I made another dinner with Jalfrez curry sauce - I added a jar of it to lentil soup. Not picture worthy, it made decent lentil soup but nothing spectacular.

Moroccan theme tonight. Spiced Honey Tangine Chicken over Apple and Pumpkin Seed Pearl Couscous, Grilled Calabasa with Ras el Hanout spice, Bacon Wrapped Almond Filled dates from my Madool tree (do they eat bacon in Morocco?) Camel Milk Ice Cream with Tamarind Sauce and Pistacio Nuts (OK, I lied. That was frost burned Blue Bunny Vanilla Ice Cream with leftover Panda Express Orange sauce. But the pistacios were real. No I didn't eat it )
