Thanksgiving Meal.

Recommended Posts

Thought it would be cool to see how much "we" are going to be eating that came from our gardens.

We are opting for a Ham and no turkey this year, but a lot of the fixens will come from our garden.

Corn, fried okra, green beans, purple hull peas, boiled potatoes (still have a bunch from digging them back in June)

We might even have some fresh tomatoes our neighbor gave us weeks ago that were picked green but are wrapped in newspaper.

So............What are yall having?

From the garden, sweet potato casserole, onion, bell pepper and parsley in seasoning, fried okra, carrots, green beans, pepper jelly. Not the garden, but ground beef that I grind from roasts myself. I grind all my ground beef, that way I know what is in it not full of fat scraps and Lord knows what else, very lean.

Think that is all.

Going to the In Laws to eat, bringing collards/kale boiled with garlic and onions.  Pink eye purple hulls with limas. Fuyu persimmon pie.. 

The collards, kale were picked this morning,-- garlic, PEPHs, were harvested this summer, and some of the Fuyu  were grown here, some bought, (young tree). Limas are "PicSweet". PicSweet was recommended a while ago on the old forum.
