RB, don't you know you must never argue with darlin Scarlett? She is the queen of Fodors (and has friends at very high places so she can get messages she doesn't like pulled pronto).

Actually, I enjoy "these sewing circle threads." One would be suprised how much you learn.

Whoa, careful there, Amazed. The poster in question ( I dare not utter the name for fear of ....) spends night and day monitoring this site as their own personal epicenter. They do email Danny at the slightest sign of deviation. But lets give the poster their due for keeping the site homey for people who don't travel.

Whoa, why the animosity towards those that want to talk about T-day? IF YOU DON'T LIKE THIS VERY CIVIL AND INFORMATIVE POST, DON'T READ IT! It was civil until there were personal attacks. What is it with you people???? This is Thanksgiving...be thankful for every blessed wonderful thing you have,,,and stop complaining about inconsequential things!

well, Sippy/Blacktie, your opinions are always of great interest to someone..I don't know who, but there must be someone interested in what you have to say.
MrAmazed/some kind of bug-Locust?? , you need to trim those claws.
IF I had an inside connection to this site, a couple of posters and you do know who I mean, would be banned, so take a chill pill and see if you can find something other than myself to get all lathered up about.
I guess since one of you is FLYing away, you need company in your nastiness?

Ellen, Correction to the broccoli recipe. 2 sticks butter-one melted in the cheese and one in the smashed ritz. You shouldn't need any milk to thin the cheese then. The rest is the same. Enjoy!

Judyrem:

Here's the exact recipe for my corn pudding:

1 can whole kernel corn
2 cans cream style corn
5 eggs
1/2 cup sugar
4 tablespoons cornstarch
1 1/2 teaspoons seasonall salt
1/2 teaspoon dry mustard
1 teaspoon instant onion
1/2 cup milk
1/2 cup melted butter

Mix it all together and pour into greased 3 quart casserole dish.

Bake at 400 for one hour, stirring after the first 1/2 hour.

I am always asked to bring baked brie wherever I go, whenever I go. For thanksgiving, I'll put a layer of cranberry/ginger chutney in it before its wrapped in puff pastry, baked, and smothered with a garlic and honey sauce. I must give credit to Bon Appetit magazine where I found the original recipe and then tweaked it to my likeing.
As for travel, I've taken it to distant places and it goes over well all over the North and Sout East, but it hasn't gone farther west than Chicago.

Rachael, I love baked brie. I first tasted it at the Sow's Ear in Cambria, CA. We have been hosting the Thanksgiving dinner for the past six years or so, we provide the turkey, stuffing, drinks, salads and my mom makes the mashed potatoes and gravy.

Hubby cooks the pumpkin and chocolate pies. Very simple and tradtional meal that we haven't changed in years since everyone enjoys it so much. ***kim***

iceeu2, just wanted to say a big thank-you for the sausage roll-ups recipe.

I took this to a church potluck tonight and they were a big hit. Looked impressive also.

People were very complimentary, and the recipe was so simple.

The things you learn from this forum -- thanks again.

Didn't I just see this over on the U.S. board about 10 minutes ago? Or am I losing my mind?

I can't bring anything to either my mom's or my MIL's, wherever we go. They are both QUEENS of their kitchens and seem to get offended if anyone dares bring anything edible. If I try it, my mom will give me a "oh, isn't that sweet - we'll save it for later," and my MIL will give me "are you sure anyone will want to eat that?" Gotta love 'em both, bless their hearts.
