Happy Thanksgiving to everyone.

Just finished a dinner that consisted of baked chicken breast, dressing, gravy and green beans. Nothing fancy and nothing really fattening. For just one person, there's no reason to bake pies, cakes and cookies. It was delicious, if I do say so.

Although we celebrate at different times on the calendar, I do hope that everyone can find some little silver lining to be thankful for. Most of it has been a grunt, on that we all agree.

Did anybody have Green bean casserole? When we had our great neighbors from the U.S. we celebrated Both our thanksgivings every year! They showed us this amazing concoction. 

We still have it for Thanksgiving. I've always loved Campbell's mushroom soup. Fry up some onions , mushrooms & garlic with pork chops or pork steaks. Dump in a can of soup. Add beer as needed.

I never knew what those fried onions in a can were for. Now I put them in salads, sandwiches & soups.

Hope you had a good one! We're having turkey burgers!

Bob, My wife made homemade green bean casserole this year with fresh blanched green beans, and homemade mushroom soup concoction that was so rich and flavorful along with those amazing fried onions in a can. Won't ever be able to go back to the canned soup. I outdid myself again and had a bellyache to prove it!!! No turkey this year as it was just the two of us , so we opted for a nice big organic chicken roasted beer can style. It took me 8 beers to find just the right can...……….that's my story and I'm sticking to it !!!

Mike,  In my quarantine, down in my basement, I have been doing a few little projects.  One, was to take Alice's rolling pin and give it a sprucing up.  I wiped it down with thinner, then sanded it with 220 lightly, then have been alternating with a wipe down of water-let it dry-sand lightly with 400 grit.  I have done this about a dozen times...and now nearly to the point of no more fibers rising.  Will soon wipe down with butcher block oil (refined/food grade mineral oil). Getting ready for baking season.

Bring on the dough, lots of it! Her spirit will live in the pies and cookies.  Brad

My daughters went non-traditional for this (add you own word here) year.
It was only five of us. I sat in another room, due to quarantine for dinner, I was outside until then.
We had a cut of roast beef, roast potatoes, two other sides that I didn't recognize-but good, and a tricked out pecan pie,
It was good to see the family, and just listen to them chat. Brad

Slammer:
Here's my recipe for creamed boiled onions. Note that I don't list any amounts, as I seldom bother to measure anything unless I'm baking:

-Enough small onions to fit your cooking receptacle, boiled until done
-A good size knob of butter
-same amount cornstarch or flour
-half and half or whole milk
-pepper
-salt
-nutmeg
-cayenne
-Parmesan cheese
-panko crumbs

Place your cooked onions in a baking dish and set aside. Next make a roux with the butter and cornstarch and/or flour. Slowly add cold half and half, whisking constantly till the mixture thickens to your desired consistency. Throw in a handful of grated Parmesan (the good stuff) and whisk till melted. Add seasonings to taste. Pour over onions, top with panko crumbs and more cheese, and bake till golden brown and bubbly. Enjoy!

Note:
This time I used precooked onions from a jar, as Al said that is what his mother used. Typically I use a bag of frozen onions which I then microwave, or (rarely) buy them raw and peel and boil them (a huge PITA.)

We did a small turkey in the smoker today. I stuffed it with hot precooked stuffing (an experimental first) brushed it with butter and Cosmo Q's Hot Dirty Bird Rub, and smoked for 4.5 hours. Garlic and green onion mash on the side, plus mushroom gravy and the leftover onions and spanakopita from yesterday.
