This weekend I looked at the oven in our Airstream was surprised to find that if we put the rack on the bottm rung we can get a 15 to 16 lbs turkey in there! We will also be bring our big toaster/convection oven so that we can bake more than one thing at a time.

Pretty darn happy - friends and family camping for Thanksgiving. You cannot ask for anything better than this!

Difference between "sweet potatoes" and "yams"

Yams are sweet potatoes outside the South.


Sweet potatoes are yams here!


Hope you Yankees have a wonderful Thanksgiving camping. If you need a recipe for cornbread dressing we'll be glad to send it to you, or pecan (pee-CAHN') pie. Wish we could see those beautiful fall leaves!

Great cula!

Yuki, great color photos....surely worth a recipe trade.

Still juggling family schedule for Thursday and Friday....May be able to show for Saturday-Sunday. The discussion of turkey, sweet potatoes, et al, is making me very hungry and definitely interested.

Friday is my house decorating day for Christmas.....Maybe I can do that the weekend before!

Since I won't be contributing to my other "families" Turkey Day I thought I would share my great grandmother's coleslaw (yes I said coleslaw) recipe that goes well and we always have on thanksgiving.

One medium head cabbage (chopped and you could do this before you arrive)
1 small onion chopped
1 large can crushed pineapple (well drained)
salt (1 teaspoon)
mayo to coat

Just love it with turkey. Get everything ready ahead and mix the morning of. If you all hate the idea just keep it to yourself as I am very delicate and could be easily hurt! hehe

Wait just full of ideas....you could make your mashed potatoes (if you guys still eat potatoes) on Wednesday and micro when the big day comes. Less mess. Works for squash too. Ziplock bags are great no wash containers. Okay I'll be quiet now.

Well if we do make it up there I will have to have my grandmother teach me how to make her French Meat Pie....That was always a must at our turkey day dinners. This would give me a great opportunity to sit down with her and figure out how she makes it just right

Sounds good. I will say I will NOT be making the green bean casserole which was part of every Thanksgiving when I was growing up. Yuck!

INGREDIENTS:
  • 4 (15 ounce) cans green beans, drained
  • 1 (10.75 ounce) can condensed cream of chicken and mushroom soup
  • 10 3/4 fluid ounces milk
  • 1 (6 ounce) can French fried onions
  • salt and pepper to taste
DIRECTIONS:
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). In a large bowl, mix the green beans with the soup and milk. Gently stir in half the French fried onions. Transfer to a non-greased 9x13 inch baking dish, and season with salt and pepper. Top with remaining French fried onions.
  2. Bake in the preheated oven for approximately 30 minutes or until bubbly. Serve hot.

Thumbs up Sounds like fun!

We will also be celebrating Thanksgiving this year in our A/S. We just got it last Saturday, however we live in Florida and we are going to be at a KOA in North Florida camping with friends. We are so excited, love those fall pics. We lived in New Engand (Portsmouth Naval Shipyard) Kittery, Maine for two years and sure enjoyed it there while stationed there.

Have a Happy Thanksgiving!

I'm sitting at my desk at the Portsmouth Naval Shipyard, what a coincidence. We're just completing propulsion plant testing on USS Jacksonville SSN 699.

Wow, that is a coincidence!

You might of heard of my husband, he was the Shipyard Commander, from
1990-1992, Capt. Lance Horne. We love Portsmouth, we were planning to come up last summer, but the rain made it difficult we headed back south after we got to Ohio.

The submarine we are using for our Avatar is the USS Florida!

What a small world!
