    I think it had to do with a book she read. But it's a combination of taking the side of Native American groups and a total misunderstanding of history (confusing the Pilgrams with Columbus). I'm tired of trying to correct her. I figure she will figure it out sooner or later and Thanksgiving is such a non issue as far as I'm concerned.

    And the seafood was great!!!!!

    LOL, count me in on the bandages. I attempted to take the tip of my right ring-finger off while chopping parsley for the stuffing. We had my parents over - Dad faints at the sight of blood, and my step-son and his girlfriend, both of whom are vegetarians. I truly did not want to bleed into the stuffing. Lots of pressure, I'm on my second band-aid after spending an hour helping dh clean up and do dishes.

    Things went well, tofurky went over well. They'd never tried it and actually took home the left-overs. I didn't try it, had enough of the rest. We only made gravy and real turkey non-vegetarian. I made vegetarian turkey for them and the rest of the meal they could eat. Stuffing, dessert without gelatin, etc. A great time was had by all.

    I sincerely hope everyone else had a great time also!!!!

    I just got home from having dinner with my sisters, mom, and niece. We had all the traditional Thanksgiving foods and watched Queer Eye. I brought home so many leftovers it's ridiculous.

    Anyway I hope everyone had a good one.

    Re: Happy Thanksgiving!

    I debated on putting this in the Jokes/Funnies thread or just go ahead and re-open a Thanksgiving thread so that we can begin to use it to wish everyone a Happy Holiday!

    I got this in an email and couldn't resist sharing it with fellow FORTers...

    RULES FOR THANKSGIVING DINNER AT MY HOUSE

    1. Don't get in line asking questions about the food. 'Who made the
    potato salad? Is it egg in there? Are the greens fresh? Is the meat in
    the greens turkey or pork? Who made the macaroni and cheese?
    What kind of pie is that? Who made it?
    Ask one more question and I will punch you in your mouth, knocking out
    all your fronts so you won't be able to eat anything.

    2. If you can't walk or are missing any limbs, sit your ass down until
    someone makes your plate for you. Dinner time is not the time for you to
    be independent. Nibble on them damn pecans and walnuts to hold you over
    until someone makes you a plate.

    3. If you have kids under the age of twelve, I will escort them to the
    basement and bring their food down to them. They are not gonna tear my
    damn house up this year. Tell them that they are not allowed upstairs
    until it's time for Uncle Butchie to start telling family stories about
    their mommas and papas. If they come upstairs for any reason except for
    that they are bleeding to death, I will break my foot off in their ass!

    4. There is going to be one prayer for Thanksgiving dinner! JUST ONE! We
    do not care that you are thankful that your 13 year old daughter gave
    birth to a healthy baby or your nephew just got out of jail. Save that
    talk for somebody who gives a damn. The time limit for the prayer is one
    minute. If you are still talking after that one minute is up, you will
    feel something hard come across your lips and they will be swollen for
    approximately 20 minutes.

    5. Finish everything on your plate before you go up for seconds!
    If you don't, you will be cursed out and asked to stay your greedy self
    home next year!

    6. BRING YOUR OWN TUPPERWARE!! Don't let me catch you fixing yourself a
    plate in my good Tupperware knowing damn well that I will never see it
    again! Furthermore, if you didn't bring anything over, don't let me
    catch you making a plate period or it will be a misunderstanding.

    7. What you came with is what you should leave with!! Do not leave my
    house with anything that doesn't belong to you. EVERYONE WILL BE
    SUBJECTED TO A BODY SEARCH COMING AND GOING OUT OF MY DOMAIN!!!

    8. Do not leave your kids so you can go hopping from house to house.
    This is not a DAYCARE CENTER! There will be a kid-parent roll call every
    ten minutes. Any parent that is not present at the time of roll call,
    your child will be put outside until you come and get him or her. After
    24 hours, I will call DHS!!

    9. BOOK YOUR HOTEL ROOM BEFORE YOU COME INTO TOWN!! There will be no
    sleeping over at my house! You are to come and eat dinner and go home or to your
    hotel room. EVERYBODY GETS KICKED OUT
    AT 11:00 pm. You will get a 15 minute warning bell ring.

    10. Last but not least! ONE PLATE PER PERSON!! This is not a soup
    kitchen. I am not trying to feed your family until Christmas dinner! You
    will be supervised when you fix your plate. Anything over the
    appropriate amount will be charged to you before you leave. There will
    be a cash register at the door. Thanks to Cousin Alfred and his greedy
    family, we now have a credit card machine! So VISA and MASTERCARD are
    now being accepted. NO FOOD STAMPS OR ACCESS CARDS YET!

    HAPPY HOLIDAYS!!!!!!!

    Re: Happy Thanksgiving!

    bbnbama, I just got that by email and was considering posting it myself.
    I thought it was hysterical. Especially number one as I know people that do that. Who made this? Does it have onions in it?

    Although years ago we had a relative that had about 200 indoor cats who were allowed to roam the kitchen and the counters, so everyone always wanted to know what she made so it could be avoided due to cat hair in it.

    And my FIL used to pray until the food was ice cold.

    For several years, we used to have Thanksgiving with our friends family. The husband and I would plan the menu, shop together and cook together starting a day or two before. Since we split the cost of it, I always took my own gladware so we could bring home leftovers. But it was also at his insistance because we had done halfsies on everything. This will be the first year we will not have Thanksgiving with them in about 5 years. His widow and kids came up and stayed with us last year for Thanksgiving, but they aren't coming up this year.

    Think of all the leftovers you will have, MRD. Leftovers are my favorite part of Thanksgiving.

    Oh, the leftovers are definetly the best part. There is NOTHING as good as a leftover thanksgiving turkey sandwich.

    And I make a great turkey a la king casserole using the leftover turkey and mashed potatos.

    I watched Alton Brown make green bean casserole from scratch last night. No cream of mushroom soup, no French's fried onions. I usually LOVE Alton, but last night I kept saying: "why?" That's the ONE dish that everyone loves and its probably the easiest to fix among the other time consuming ones, so why would I boil my own beans, and make my own cream of mushroom soup and my own crunchy onions when that dish is all about the convenience. If that was the only thing I was making, I might try it from scratch. Nah, that's one recipe I won't try. I like the old way.
