Scarlett, the dressing story is good. Many many years ago had my Yankee neighbors over for supper. We had biscuits and she raved and raved over the rolls I made!

John, your receipe sounds fantastic. But even as a kid I grossed people out over what I liked such as liver and onions, spinach, brocoli etc. LOL.

But seriously, your receipe sounds great.

I have a difficult time accepting a recipe from a guy recommending rootabeggers & misspelling it twice before re-posting with a recipe. We will post this one on Snopes.com for you, Johnster.

Janeygirl, what is the recipe for the corn pudding? My husband packed away all my recipes and he doen't want to go searching through boxes for it. Ants340, that cake sounds to die for and easy too! Good thread and it IS travel related, right people?

As I've already posted, I go to Thanksgiving dinner where there are traditionally 32 casseroles. But despite this abundance of great stuff, every year I'm asked to bring tabouleh. I made it one year and my friend's moms youngest son , the one who just won't grow up and leave home, loved it, so I'm stuck. Every year I have to bring tabouleh. Which reminds me that I need to go to the health food dept. at Publix to buy my cracked wheat. And wouldn't you know tomatoes are through the roof this year!

BuffaloGal - LOL, your contributions sound exactly like mine!

TripleSec - Interesting about shatner's album....Ben Folds is an amazing songwriter ("Luckiest" rocks!) but can he really make shatner sound good?

Swalter518 - your broccoli dish sounds simply delish! Care to share the recipe? TIA!

Happy Thanksgiving everyone!

Does anyone else here like creamed spinach? I make it each Christmas, mostly for my DH and my best friend's DH. I make it with parmesean cheese and it's always a big hit.

Triplesec and ellen griswold, I saw that show with Joe Jackson and Shatner. Awesome! I've always loved Joe Jackson...and Shatner is such a trip. Then last night after I read this thread, I saw Shatner again on Conan...they were discussing how Shatner can make anything sound interesting, to prove the point he recited Itsy Bitsy Spider with the drums pounding and the audience roaring. Good stuff! Honest!

Judyrem:

I'm posting from work right now and my recipe's at home. I'll try to post the exact recipe tomorrow but, if you want to make sure you have the ingredients in the meantime, here's what you'll need:

2 cans cream style corn
1 can whole kernel corn
Lawry's seasonall salt
those dried minced onions from the spice section of the store
5 eggs
milk
butter
sugar
dry mustard (?)
cornstarch

I think that's it just off the top of my head. It's an easy recipe and everyone loves it.

Ellen,
Here it is off the top of my head. I'll check tonight and post tomorrow if anything is wrong.

Cheesy Broccoli Casserole
3 boxes frozen broccoli, just undercooked and drained well.
1 stick butter
1 sleeve Ritz crackers (crushed)
1 small Velveeta - cut in chunks
Milk


Melt 1/2 stick butter and toss with crackers -- set aside.
In a separate pan, melt remaining butter and Velveeta over low heat. If when melted it appears too think, add milk to thin. When Velveeta is melted, mix in broccoli. Pour mixture into casserole dish. Top with cracker mixture. Bake at 350 until top is golden brown and cheese is bubbly-about 30 mins.

This can easily be doubled for a large crowd. This amount feeds about 6-8 depending on how big of eaters you have. Baking time varied depending on size of dish.

Oh your discussion of Shatner just reminded me of another tradition but not for us. We do a white elephant exchange every year and a few years back my brother received my husband's gift-a Regis Philbin CD. Now he has to bring it every year to be played during the gift exchange. It's a good thing Reg only made one album!

Seems like another attempt to hijack this travel board & turn in into the Betty Crocker Board. How many new recipe threads do you NEED on a NON-recipe board? There are many food-related boards, many more than travel boards.

But then I suppose HI-JACKING could be considered travel.

I'm always asked to bring my stuffed mushrooms. I could make them in my sleep. They combine shredded raw bacon / cream cheese and use huge mushroom caps and are baked for almost an hour.

Geez RB, if you don't like the thread ...don't read it! We are having a great time ;-), and we can't help it, if you do not!

RB - Post a political thought here. Many of the same who posted recipes will tell you that, "this is a travel thread." LOL

Who woulda' thunk it?

Oh please, rb! you read all of these posts then whine about them!
I saw your not so charming remarks on Other Topics about the Fodors Sewing Circle and boinking. Happily Fodors deleted you.
Why not post something that YOU like? or is there anything?

Scarlett - of course I have other interests and I correspond in OTHER message boards about them, not here. A simple click on my screen-name should show that I have a number of travel interests and do make contributions and helpful suggestions to others' travel plans and questions.

My "whining" each and every time are these sewing circle threads ... it's NOT about travel and don't belong here, and yes, I was SURE my off-color comment would be deleted, but I felt an off-topic/off-color comment as that would at least draw some Fodor attention. I do NOT write Fodors about these matters; but I have no problem commenting online.

There are PLENTY of non-Fodor boards available if travel is not the topic.

Enjoy your holidays, and TRAVEL safely. I do enjoy your travel discussions, really.

Puff pastry cheese straws. Very good - especially if you use pepperidge farms pre-made puff pastry. i got bored making just straws, so now i make stars, moons and other shapes. i add a little cayenne or old bay seasoning to them to give some kick.
