Thanksgiving questionaire

Greetings - from the Abyss!  While Ms.Bee is home pondering Thanksgiving menus and what time to leave for the next hockey gig - The Man's Man is here:

Carton House - Outside of Dublin Ireland

He is busy pondering which course to play tomorrow! 

A friend has suggested he play O'Meara because Mongomerie looks like Mrs.Doubtfire he says!

Ms. Bee is pondering the Thanksgiving menu because that is what she does.........she writes it - then crosses things out, then rewrites it, then looks at more recipes.........decisions long as there is wine and booze we will survive!

Ms.Bee is wondering a few things:

Do you eat turkey for Christmas as well?

What is your favorite side dish with turkey?

Do you eat in the afternoon or evening?

Do you have a specific tradition on Thanksgiving?

I will tell you that my favorite side dish is Spinach souffle' - it's an absolute must have for me and my sista too!  We eat it for breakfast the next day and the next until it's gone! 

We DO NOT eat turkey on Christmas, my Dad was never a big fan of turkey in his younger days so Mom always had roast beef on Christmas................which is my personal favorite...........I think each holiday should have it's own unique menu!  My Italian inlaws always had lasanga - I love pasta but I love beef more - so beef wins out!

We eat mid-afternoon - usually around 3:00PM - after we have hor'derves and drinks!

We do not have a specific tradition on Thanksgiving - except to always give thanks - for what we have - and to be together...........which is a blessing.
