Great stories! Funny how Thanksgiving seems to touch a special chord for most of us. And, yes, remembering (and hopefully, doing something for) those who aren't as fortunate to have a home, much less a bird. Also, on a different note, I only recently discovered that no one in New England used the term "dressing" for what stuffs the turkey. Even though I've lived here in New England far longer than I ever lived in the Midwest, it was a new realization to me. Where I'm from, "stuffing" and "dressing" are interchangeable terms. Ah, regional variations!

Creamed onions?!? AAAAAAARRRRRRRGGGGGGGGGHHHHHHHHHH! Not once in entire generations of my family did anyone whip out the creamed onions. Must be 'an acquired taste.' Right up there with beet and raisin pie... ACK!

You are not the first person to tell me of their dislike of creamed onions. It's funny because I hated onions as a kid, now I love them.

I met my now ex-husband on Thanksgiving, we eventually got together on Thanksgiving and his mom is a wonderful cook so Thanksgiving at his parents' house was always yummy. While I am VERY happy to be on my own (and to be spending THIS Thanksgiving with my own parents in CA), I have some pleasant and tasty memories of Thanksgiving to hold onto from when I was married.
