    OK let's see if I can stir up some S**T .... Which is better, cold turkey sandwiches with mayo or hot turkey sandwiches smothered in gravy?

    I completely forgot about the Macy's parade .... first time I haven't watched it in years

    Does that mean you have your Christmas shopping done already, Artie? HAHAHAHAHAHA

    The cold turkey with mayo is only good if the mayo is applied with a smoothbore while wearing a leather 'top your head.

    Hot turkey on the other hand, well who knows.

    I watched as much as the citizens allowed me to and was not too impressed.

    Gone are the days of seeing the actual parade. Now it has turned into a x-hours long tribute to broadway musicals and celebrities trying their hand at live commentary.

    Maybe I am just old fashioned...

    On a seperate note, I would like to thank the citizens and visitors of Fairfax County, Virginia for allowing my entire shift to enjoy Thanksgiving dinner together undisturbed.

    Glad someone got to enjoy it. The Township residents kept us just busy enough not to get to eat our meal till 830pm. With a planned time of 4pm.

    Heh. A department north of me got banged out for a fire alarm activation about 30 minutes before the big meal. They get there, nothing found, so they go inservice and come home. As they all pull back in, they get banged out for a heart attack, patient not breathing....A few buildings down from where they just were.

    This year I promised that I would NOT stuff myself like I do every year ... yeah, right.
    By sundown I was so full that if the tones dropped all they could have done was roll me out of the way and leave me moaning.

    On the subject of leftovers; cold with mayo should only be eaten for lunch, while hot turkey with gravy (and crandberry sauce of course) is definately a supper time delight.

    Mayo can also be successfully applied with a well timed positive pressure attack.

    Stuffed is putting it light.
    Multiple family eating, trying to eat just enough not to offend the cooks, still feeling full. And to top it all off, there is yet one more turkey-day meal coming up tonight.

    Thumbs up Tukey, YUM!

    I'm told I AM A TURKEY

    It was all I could do to escape with all my feathers in place. But I did sit down and have a hearty meal. Wait a minute, did we just eat Uncle George????

    Cold, mayo, any bread but white, cheese(prefer swiss),cranberry sauce, cold beverage of choice,= perfect bedtime snack!!

    There is a smaller chain of sandwich shops in this area (Capprioti's)(sp?) that makes the turkey,stuffing,and cranberry on a hoagie (sub, grinder,hero,...) which lets us enjoy any time!

    My fam did the "fried turkey" thing this year in addition to a more traditional oven bird.

    I have to say, the fried turkey was surprisingly good... I didn't think I was going to like it.

    Thumbs up Turkey isn't turkey till it's lickin' good fried!

    We've been eating the fried turkey for three years now. I'm not sure we will ever go back to smoked. Although, I like both.

    Then we have fried pork loin at Christmas. MMMM, Yummy!

    I am with Gonz. The turkey, cranberry, stuffing mixture is my favorite. We were blessed with 5 inches of snow Wednesday and the 14 runs that went along with that. After work, I got my big butt out and played football against a team whos oldest member was 21. Then went over the river and through the woods (well actually up the Dan Ryan Expressway and Lake Shore Drive) to my Moms for a nice,civilized day of good food a HORRIBLE football.

    Smile since we are using up turkey here

    How about:

    Turkey & bleu cheese salad with a tarragon-mustard vinaigrette
    turkey, celery, toasted almonds, chunks of bleu chese, sliced apple and endive leaves tossed with the vinairgrette

    Turkey soup with lemon, ginger and mint
    chunks of turkey, carrots, leeks simmered in fresh turkey stock with fresh lemon juice, ginger, and mint

    Turkey Cakes served with a spicy roasted tomato salsa
    diced turkey mixed with cilantro, chives, diced red chili, lime juice shaped into little patties then baked till golden and served topped with a spicy salsa.
