Not quite. It does get kind of dry, like chicken, if you don't do it right though. And it makes a better gravy than chicken.

Don't worry too much about the turkey. Unless you're as inept as me in the kitchen and few folks are, so I expect you're better with food than I am cooking one so that it's edible isn't the problem. Even mine tasted quite good, very moist, it just looked terrible. Turkey dinner novices tend to either over cook the bird, leaving it dry, or underestimate how long it needs to stay in the oven, leaving guests waiting on supper for an extra hour.

Get as much help as you can with the veggies, assign one to each guest if possible. Use the biggest pots you can find and prepare twice what you think you'll need. Some, like turnip if you mash it, seem to cook up into less than you expect.

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

Buy a whole bunch of Microwave food, tell your family you dislike being bothered when cooking so they better wait in the living room if they are home, heat up the food, and voila. Don't forget to blemish a few pans, spoons, and knives, and put them in the dish washer so it actually looks like you cooked something.

Or you could Youtube a few recipes and put some effort into it?

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

Years ago, my wife and I got roped into hosting Thanksgiving every year because of how big our house is compared to our other family members' domiciles. She was very reluctant and pissed off about it.

So, I took it upon myself to inform everyone that we would do the main dish (turkey and usually pheasant or goose, depending on what I can bag while hunting) and the mashed potatoes and stuffing. Anything else was up to someone else to bring. Green bean casserole, macaroni salad, dinner rolls, 500 desserts...if it wasn't on the table that day it was because someone didn't bring it. It's worked out, we have a good amount of food on the big day and then afterwards we have everyone bring home some leftover turkey and potatoes to go with whatever they brought.

Plus, you don't necessarily have to do turkey. Chicken works out pretty well, ditto with maybe duck or capon. When I was a kid, my mom sometimes actually volunteered to work Thanksgiving Day (she was a nurse) and get holiday $ for it. One Thanksgiving, my dad simply cooked steaks on the grill and we had steak, baked potato, salad, and garlic bread.

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

Thanksgiving update:

I have settled on a menu of Julia Child's classic roast chicken. Anyone who wants turkey is out of luck. I'm doing green beans almondine - because I am not going to go buy fresh green beans and then dump cream of sodium and fake onions on them - a sweet potato, a mashed potato, and one other vegetable. And a wilted spinach salad. I'm letting dad do the gravy, though. Mine always lumps. Also, assorted baked goods I did not bake, because you can throw my baked goods at the coastline to ward off the Vikings.

Anyone who wants anything else can make it himself or herself.

Thanks for the assist! I will take pictures the day of!

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

green bean casarole > green beans almondine

I want pictures of this feast regardless.

Speaking of which, I should upload pics of the thanksgiving meal me and my brother made last November. Ridiculous amount of bacon, sausage and cornish game hens.
