Let me preface this by saying I’m a foodie and I love thanksgiving dinner. When I was 17 I had major jaw surgery and my mouth was wired shut from Halloween through the first week in December. I was miserable smelling all of the delicious food so I put some turkey, gravy and dressing in the blender and tried to drink it through a straw!
Guess it would have to be when I was 21 and moved to California with my friend. We were so poor,, couldnt afford a turkey. Back then we ate a lot of potatoes and grilled cheese sandwiches (they were really cheap back then). My oldest sister (who I lost this year), came to visit with us for Thanksgiving. Tried to make it as special as possible. Had no idea how to cook much. So we bought a pumpkin and decided to make pumpkin pies out of that. No internet back then, so could not find a recipe.
Made it as smooth as possible, but no sugar, no eggs, no cinnamon….YUK!!!
After the table was set and complete, dinner was ready for serving, and I had just finished plating the gravy when I turned around and there were flames coming from the front of my Gas stove. A disconnection behind the knob had Occurred and flames were flowing 12 inches out of my stove . My grandson call the fire department and within 15 minutes there was no evidence there was any problem at all and when my guests arrived they had no clue of that near disaster.
Well Adam…that would be the thanksgiving spent in the emergency room..at the hospital! A very painful and stubborn migraine had other plans for my family’s thanksgiving day.It took a couple hours to find relief .but finally..THANKFULLY..my family huddled at home over cold turkey&stuffing.Dinner never tasted so good! ddshoppy:^)
My most memorable Thanksgiving moment was November 23, 1972, when my husband and I got married. We then ate Thanksgiving dinner at my Mom’s with family and friends. This year our anniversary will be on Thanksgiving day also.
When I was 13 or 14 my mother was hospitalized with a severe case of lupus and wouldn’t be home to cook the Thanksgiving dinner. I didn’t know how to cook anything then except eggs and hamburgers. I sat next to my mothers hospital bed while she gave me instructions on how to prep the turkey for roasting and how to make her pork sausage dressing (both in a casserole dish and in the turkey) along with how to make the gravy from the drippings. I listened so very carefully as it was the most important meal of the whole year to make and there would be 3 generations at the house for dinner.
I can’t tell you how proud I was when everything came out perfect just like my mother would have made it. I felt so grown up that day. Me and my dad packed a special plate of food for my mother and took it to her in the hospital. She was so proud of me.
One moment in particular that still warms my heart to this day is when my kids made construction paper turkeys. On each feather they wrote what they were thankful for. The usual kid stuff such as their dog, bed, video games, etc. What made my heart burst with love was the fact that they each wrote they were thankful God chose us to be their parents. You see, my kids are adopted. It was the greatest gift ever ❤️
Hi Adam 😀 My most memorable moment was when our children was old enough to answer the question of what are you thankful for. And from then on became a tradition plus eating before noon LOL
Hi Adam and HSN,
My most memorable Thanksgiving is when all the family gather around the dinner table:)
We had sweet potatoes, turkey with dressing, cottage cheese, my Grandma’s homemade rolls,
pumpkin pie with whipped cream:) Oh yes, and cranberry sauce with real cranberries:)
Happy Thanksgiving and many more:)
Hi Adam! My most memorable Thanksgiving moment was when I pulled out my turkey and placed on the table for my family to admire, and the whole bag of innards was sticking out of the turkeys behind. Silly me forgot to remove the bag before cooking. It was so embarrassing! One thing about mistakes is it never happened again.
