UNCUT, UNCENSORED, and UNCOOKED!

The closest I'm gonna get to a quality Thanksgiving meal will probably be a turkey lunch meat on wheat sandwich. I've been screwed out of Thanksgiving and Easter meals regularly for the past few years...

But hey turkey on wheat ain't bad and there's no awkward conversations.

For the people with useful input, thanks. Talked to my Dad, he said that there's no room to store food at their house, but if I could find a pre-cooked turkey, the two of us could knock out some sides. He's picky about dressing.
If you give me your house address I'll be happy to send your turkey there :ksi1

The hardest part comes when it's time to clean up.

My mother and my sister's mother-in-law talk in backhanded compliments about each other's cooking, child-rearing, and church attendance. And I sit in an uncomfortable antique chair with a book, or wrangle my nieces.

We are not doing this in 2012, because my sister and her husband are getting divorced - making the current arrangement even more awkward than usual. So, I asked my mother what we were doing. She has never met a boxed dinner she could not ruin, my father (who does all the cooking) said he was too tired to do a big dinner, and my sister said that she was too stressed from getting divorced.

Thus. It falls to me. However, there is a problem. I, as a single, self-employed person with no roommates or children, am not at all qualified for cooking for more than one.

I may just tell them that I am protesting the oppression of indigenous people and we can order pizza. But probably not.

Do any of you have advice for cooking large meals for about 8 people?
Just order Chinese, they won't notice the difference.

Re: Oh, God. I might have to cook Thanksgiving.

I think you should do the cooking. If it were me, in situation such as yours, I would feel obligated (which isn't such a good thing). But it sounds like everyone really needs someone to pull them together this year; so ask yourself if you're thankful for knowing these people at all. If it's yes (hopefully at least some of them), then do it; you'll only look back and be considered the sane person during the holiday season.

Thanksgiving meal:
Turkey - you can google that easily
Stuffing - stove top microwave
Corn (on the cob) - google that too
Cranberry sauce - out of a can
Apple Pie - probably hardest part, google it
cornbread - google it

all this stuff is easily bought well in advance, and you can just google it if need be.

Lol, Julia fuckin Child over here, Im sure she never thought of that.


Cooking for a load of people at once is easy and fun enough once you get the hang of it, you'll inevitably be less than perfect on certain elements but people wont really give a shit. There's nothing worse than being invited to a dinner party and having the host constantly apologise that their gravy was too thin when it was perfectly fine and you only really came to hang with friends/family anyway. So give it a bash and you might even enjoy it, most practical advice in this thread was acquire as many pots and pans as possible, thats usually rookie error no 1.

Re: Oh, God. I might have to cook Thanksgiving.

I have too cook this year too is not the cooking that pisses me off i'm puertorican and my family is fucking annoying nosey and loud. In top of that they start blasting that annoying reggaeton shit as loud as they can.

Glad I only see them twice a year imagine living with them? Madness.
