National Overeaters Day was diligently observed at this household. We had turkey (but breast only, not whole carcass), stuffing, whipped potatoes, green bean cassarole, cranberry sauce, and apple pie. I was stuffed and succumbed rapidly to L-tyrptophan poisoning. I now have ample supply of all of the above....well, the apple pie is in short supply and will disappear before the end of the day, I'm quite sure.

I had a feast today and I'm stuffed!
The sight filled the northern sky; the imensity of it was scarcely conceivable. As if from Heaven itself, great curtains of delicate light hung and trembled. Pale green and rose-pink, and as transparent as the most fragile fabric, and at the bottom edge a profound fiery crimson like the fires of Hell, they swung and shimmered loosely with more grace than the most skillful dancer. ~ Northern Lights
So....After a repeat performance, this year with a whole chicken, rather than a turkey, I am still replete with leftovers.
Mashies and gravy. Stuffing. Picked chicken. Cranberry sauce (smooth). A tray a third full of prawns, with dip.
And, [drum flourish] most of the green bean casserole still exists. [rimshot]
Oooo...near a half gallon of eggnog. (I may have to dig out the bourbon again.)
I will say one thing; Switching to chicken really did delink the L-tryptophan poisoning sequence of the usual holiday events. A guest and I watched an entire football (American, pro) game and were still awake at 21:00. And, we both commented on it.
My church is putting on a pre-Christmas turkey dinner next week. I'm so looking forward! With a vegetarian daughter, no more family turkey dinners for me.
We had a Christmas once where Pat cooked four different protein foods - turkey, beef, fish and one other, I forget which - because everyone liked something different. You could do the same for your daughter and actually enjoy what you cook
Heh I remember when you were here, Kye, and you wanted us all to eat the same thing when we had a meal . Doesn't really bother me eating differently than other people tho - Col and I have very different tastes.
I heard a bird cry, sharp and free. My name is Jordan.
I am probably like dave to be honest - I love apple pie but I can't really discern between different kinds of filling. A good pastry is essential though.
I do okay in that quarter. For nearly fifty years now, I've been exclusively using the "No Fail Pie Crust" recipe that the mother of a close friend passed on to me. It uses an egg and a tablespoon of unfiltered apple cider vinegar, along with the usual ingredients. It has performed up to its rather hyperbolic title for the entire span of years. I usually get 'nice flakey crust' comments.
