You should try my Grand Maw's turkey. All the gravy in the world couldn't help.

My Mom's cranberry "sauce". She takes a can opener to it and plops it out onto a plate and serves it in the shape of the can, complete with the rings still visible.

BUT, I love that stuff. The turkey is just an excuse to eat that.

That's how its supposed to be served. It would be darn strange not to see the can marks. I always have a can like that just for decoration. I make my own fresh sauce, but it's not the same without the one in the can.

I like the marshmallow gelatin thing my grandmother used to make, too. I make it every year in her memory. Only about 3 or 4 people eat it, but I don't care. Tasting it makes me feel like she's there.

re: Famously bad Thanksgiving dishes you have to smile and eat


my mother made some cauliflower cheese deal...it's wasn't cauli heads and cheese it was some kind of ground cauliflower and different cheeses


just awful and my bro and I had to finally say stop we hate it


then the year everything she made wasn't right. She had forgotten what each recipe was and we think used salt instead of sugar and sugar instead of salt....that's when we figured out she wasn't all there anymore


she doesn't cook thanksgiving dinner anymore

re: Famously bad Thanksgiving dishes you have to smile and eat


First year I ate my MIL's rice dressing I felt bad for her. I thought she had overcooked the rice and just knew she must be embarrassed. I was actually kind of shocked that she even bothered to serve it. Now 4 years later I am NOT looking forward to it being served again because she thinks it is wonderful and sends a big leftover bowl home with us. Goes in the trash because I like her too much to decline it.

Congealed salad? A woman on my mom's side of the family has to make one of those for every damn holiday meal.

It's congealed, but it's a good one. I like it.

The can shaped cranberry sauce is great sliced thin on a leftover turkey sandwich with fresh white Bunny bread and Blue Plate may, salt and pepper with a mix of dark and white meat.

I'll even share it.

1 pt whipping cream, whipped
Chop together-1 can Royal Anne white cherries,1 large can sliced pineapple, 1 pint bottle red cherries (reserve the juice)
½ lb marshmallows
1 c pecans (chopped a bit)
2 envelopes Knox gelatin
4 T Durkee’s

Soak gelatin in the red cherry juice. Season whipped cream with Durkee’s. Add to fruit, nuts and gelatin.

Refrigerate until serving.

I just threw up in my mouth a little. You actually could have made it worse, substitute the whipping cream with Cool Whip.

There was another disgusting relic of the '70's called Watergate salad. Congealed makes me think of a pool of blood slowly thickening as it dries.

There was another one made with Cheez Wiz, brocolli and hot mayonnaise. Only the digestive system of a great white shark can handle a casserole containing hot mayonnaise.
