Alternate Thanksgiving Dinner

Well this year has been 'difficult' due to surgeries resulting in 'limited' food options UNTIL last surgery in OCT after which I could begin introducing/eating ALL the foods I have NOT had for past year.

Neighbors were having a get together with family and their Grandpa is a good friend.
They BBQ some Steaks, made spicy mac/cheese, a parmesan cheese broccoli dish, green beans w/bacon and cheesy rolls

Although I can now eat anything I wish my last set of blood labs showed I still had not fully gotten my red/white cells back into normal range so playing it safe by NOT socializing
They delivered TWO large plates FULL of the above goodies and they were delicious!!

Been over a year since I last had STEAK!!!

So although NOT the traditional Thanksgiving Turkey Dinner with all the fix'ns it was a true THANKS GIVING!

Hope everyone had a wonderful day and may we all continue to be blessed

I had to really scrape to make a passable representation, but it worked.

Yesterday, I went to a place people were gathering, ( as Texas isn't closed down yet ) and it had a sigh up sheet to bring things. I spent most of yesterday morning mostly prepping. 2 dishes, one special homemade bbq meatballs with 3 meats, and medium youcon gold tatters. step one, make meatball mix, set in fridge to let flavors mix. Step 2, scrub 35 tatters, then cut in half and poke with fork, holes in both sides, have food processor liptons onion soup mix ready. Spray butter flavored pam on flat side of tatters, sprinkle soup mix, turn over spay skin side, wrap up in non stick foil and repeat 34 more times. Make meat balls large, bake wide open to brown, but not fully cooked, have heinz chili sauce with smuckers grape jelly mixed together, put non stick foil in bowl, dunk meat ball into sauce with tongs, put meat ball in bowl, add more sauce, seal up and repeat 34 more times. Put in roaster with 2 custom made tinfoil pans for each item so cleanup is easy. Put name with paint pen on roaster and tongs, make sigh for each side for meatballs and tatters. Lots of love to make and prep, but very simple and sanitary to serve. It being thanksgiving, I should have used ground turkey instead of ground pork with the burger and lamb. The best thing is, as I don't like cold food, the tinfoil trick keeps stuff hot for a wile. Happy day after to all

Glad to hear you are doing better and that you had a good Thanksgiving this year.

Just an FYI, we had Lasagna and Deviled Eggs and Chocolate Cream Pie for our Thanksgiving meal this year. That was it! And oh, a Coca Cola for drinks.

Glad to hear your dietary choices have expanded, Old-Biscuit! You have some really good friends and neighbors, too.

I grilled a steak, baked potato, big green salad. Dessert had to wait.

A good neighbor got treated by a good neighbor. Too bad there isn't more of this in today's world.
If they were really good they would have left you a roll of toilet paper too.

Currently have no need of TP.......

Hopefully that will change with a 'reversal' in March of 2021


Glad others had a non-traditional dinner also
Thinking this non-traditional will be repeated next year and become the 'tradition'

Never mind......I'm not waiting another year to have STEAK again

Sure sounds like you're progressing right along. That was so nice of your neighbors to share. I'll bet that steak was pretty tasty since you haven't had one for so long.

2020 started out ROUGH and it had nothing to do with COVID

I am going to FINISH 2020 90% better off.
Looking forward to 2021 especially March when I can be 100%

Thanksgiving this year held more meaning....truly BLESSED!

Wishing the BEST for everyone !!!!!!

Our Thanksgiving was attended by me, the DW, and our deaf 19 year old cat.
When our "turkey" was alive it went:"Oink, oink". SEE, the cat and I don't care for regular turkey so the DW got outvoted. (Also, way too many leftovers for just the three of us)
Side dishes were scalloped potatoes, hot rolls from the oven, brussell sprouts,
Chocolate cake, and a couple cans of barley pop.
