The best Thanksgiving dish you ever had

    And that refers to food, not a woman you drunkenly slobbered all over on Turkey Day.

    I had a bacon-themed menu all prepared for a mini-Thanksgiving at my parents house this weekend. It appears I have been watching way too much "Iron Chef." My ideas were summarily shot down by my mother about an hour ago. Apparently there is an ongoing cholesterol problem in America.

    So, I must start over in my menu design, but I would like this to be somewhat creative. Oh, and I would like to stay away from Turkey since it will be overplayed next week.

    A little help would be much appreciated. A favorite dish? A creative dish? A good main dish that does not include turkey? And, please, nothing that involves green beans out of respect for my father. He is "allergic" to them.

    Thank you in advance!

    I had deep fried Turducken at a restaurant down south. Holy shit it was amazing...

    I feel you. Australia sounds more fun than Turkey, anyway.

    I think you should bring a monster-sized Turducken (you can order them online for about $75) and bring a side of Lipitor.

    This will be the first Thanksgiving dinner I have ever planned and executed. If I attempt to cook a Turducken, very, very bad things will happen. Like death and shit.

    I would absolutely love to try a Turducken, however.

    As a side offering, I was considering breast milk mashed potatoes.

    As much as I would have liked a romantic liaison on Thanksgiving (which has never happened) I knew you meant food Care Bear. I am not much into turkey, so I would say stuffing. One of my faves and I try to only have it on Thanksgiving.

    Fuck. Took me five minutes to find my mistake.

    Thanksgiving is not the time to think about cholesterol. And we usually have ham at Thanksgiving, instead of turkey.

    I'm seemingly never off the clock.

    Cornish hen with a bottle of Scotch, 1995.

    I agree, Wenders, but my mom rules with an iron oven mitt.

    Anyone prepared Cornish Hens before? I like them, but I've never cooked with them.
