Foodie Friday: Turkey, Ham, Both, or Neither?

by Fawn Rechkemmer on November 22, 2013

Thanksgiving table
Is your Thanksgiving menu planned and ready to go?

What about your holiday shopping list? I’m a little nervous about the fact that there are six fewer days between Thanksgiving and Christmas this year. I don’t know about you, but that inspires me to be a little more organized than usual when it comes to shopping, decorating, and planning in general.

A week or so ago, we asked you to weigh in on the turkey or ham question on our Facebook page.  Here are your responses:

  • Alessandra Ferguson of You Are More:  “TURKEY!”
  • Blueberry Acres Farm:  “Turkey! We have been raising our own heritage turkeys this year and while I hoped to bring one to dinner (wink, wink), my husband has given them a reprieve so we can get some spring eggs and expand our flock size, those lucky freeloaders.”
  • Dani Ives of Be Good Natured: “Neither. Vegetarian sides only for me!”
  • Mistie Thompson of My Heart’s in Dixie:  “Turkey on Thanksgiving – ham for Christmas. Yum!”
  • Rebecca Hope of XOXO Rebecca:  “I’m the odd one out. I always go get Chinese food on Thanksgiving.”
  • Renee Wigger:  “Both!”
  • Sonda Bruce:  “We are both Vegetarians–NO MEAT for us thank you!”

Now let’s see what the Missouri Women Bloggers have been up to food-wise this month:

Since we’ve answered the turkey or ham question, it’s probably time to talk about dessert.  If you had to pick just one thing from the Thanksgiving dessert buffet, what would it be?

We eat sugar free & gluten free— so we usually stick with fresh fruit or something healthy!!!

I’m so impressed with your healthy eating habits, Sonda!

Mmm… is there anything better than a smoked turkey on Thanksgiving? Delish. For dessert? Pumpkin pie with real whipped cream.

Our turkey is usually roasted. But I agree: smoked is best!

Pumpkin pie…preferably homemade with REAL whipped cream!

Shana Norris November 25, 2013 at 10:00 am

The whipped cream absolutely MUST be real, Nancy!

My sister-in-law’s homemade apple pie with real whipped cream. Heaven on a plate!

Apple pie is one thing we don’t have on the Thanksgiving buffet. Unfortunately. I love it!
