Who's Doing What for Thanksgiving?
5 years ago
| Surprise Me

Just curious,you know?


As for me,with no family in Minnesota,I will be spending it alone. I've been invited to spend time with friend's families,but here's the thing...

With no family around,I'd rather fix my own meal,drink beer,smoke herb,and WATCH FOOTBALL!! If I cant do that anywhere else,while I appreciate the invites,I'd rather be on my own

David - I have no doubt that my in-laws say worse ...

And most of it is justified...

David, if I was close enough to drive over to your place for Thanksgiving that's where I'd be - it sounds simply perfect

We are going out to eat our Thanksgiving meal again this year.  Cracker Barrel serves a really good Turkey dinner (their 'trimmings' are delish), and since money is tight right now and because it's much less expensive (and certainly less work!) to eat out than if we went out and bought all the groceries to prepare it myself, that's our plan.  We could even order seconds to bring home for later and it would still cost less.


And of course we'll be watching the Cowboys try to eek out another win under the 'leadership' [cough]of the most pass ass-happy NFL coach in history, that nitwit ... what'shisname?  Oh ya, Jason Garrett

Oh, and even if we had money to burn, I'd still refuse to do all that work for a beautiful Thanksgiving dinner when there's no dining table to serve it on or dine at

Me too.  My own in-laws that is.


And because of that I will probably miss my new tradition.....The Natioanl Dog Show with John Hurley.

I think I like David's plan!!!  The s/o went a bit crazy inviting people - I think we're up to 13 !  So I'll be a cookin' fool.  I'll have to lay off the wine until it's done or I'll be shitfaced!

It's just the three of us again this year, me, myself & I. Just kidding. I'm cooking for my husband & kid. But no big brined turkey like last year. Way too much food then. So I'm doing a mini version. 

And, sorry people, we don't watch football... Ever.

Happy Danksgiving!  Here is a great Danksgiving turkey recipe.  You will need cannabis butter, for our recipe click this link.





You will need…


1 medium turkey (about 12 to 15 pounds is good)


3/4 cup cannabutter (cannabis butter)

1/4 cup chicken/turkey broth


1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice


1 teaspoon poultry seasoning

1 teaspoon dried basil


1 teaspoon dried thyme


1/2 teaspoon ground/rubbed sage

And, you will also need…

1 saucepan

1 turkey baster

1 turkey roasting pan


An oven would help too.


Start off by melting the cannabutter in a small pot (add additional pot if desired) over low heat and mix in remaining ingredients and spices. Stuff your turkey and season with salt, pepper, and other spices as desired. Now you will need to separate the skin of the turkey from the meat. Start at the butt end of the turkey, and work your fingers under the skin of the turkey, try to do this without breaking the skin if possible. Peel back the skin. Now, using a turkey baster, squirt half the butter mixture on  the meat. Pull back the skin, and squirt the turkey with the remaining butter mixture.  Cook the turkey according to your favorite method, basting with the remaining butter mixture every half hour until done.

Happy Thanksgiving to All and God Bless ....

So once in every year we throng
Upon a day apart,
To praise the Lord with feast and song
In thankfulness of heart.
~Arthur Guiterman, The First Thanksgiving

As we express our gratitude, we must never forget that the highest appreciation is not to utter words, but to live by them.  ~John Fitzgerald Kennedy

Remember God's bounty in the year.  String the pearls of His favor.  Hide the dark parts, except so far as they are breaking out in light!  Give this one day to thanks, to joy, to gratitude!  ~Henry Ward Beecher

Prayer for the Great Family

by Gary Snyder


Gratitude to Mother Earth, sailing through night and day—
        and to her soil: rich, rare and sweet
                            in our minds so be it.

Gratitude to Plants, the sun-facing, light-changing leaf
        and fine root-hairs; standing still through wind
        and rain; their dance is in the flowering spiral grain
                            in our minds so be it.

Gratitude to Air, bearing the soaring Swift and silent
        Owl at dawn. Breath of our song
        clear spirit breeze
                            in our minds so be it.

Gratitude to Wild Beings, our brothers, teaching secrets,
        freedoms, and ways; who share with us their milk;
        self-complete, brave and aware
                            in our minds so be it.

Gratitude to Water: clouds, lakes, rivers, glaciers;
        holding or releasing; streaming through all
        our bodies salty seas
                            in our minds so be it.

Gratitude to the Sun: blinding pulsing light through
        trunks of trees, through mists, warming caves where
        bears and snakes sleep— he who wakes us—
                            in our minds so be it.

Gratitude to the Great Sky
        who holds billions of stars— and goes yet beyond that—
        beyond all powers, and thoughts
        and yet is within us—
        Grandfather Space.
        The Mind is his Wife.
                            so be it.
