Good for you Shermie. Might be a tad warmer down that way at least.
We are hosting the festivities at our house once again this year. It's a lot of work getting the house ready for 20+ for dinner but I prefer that to going out to someone else's house.

We're going to feed, and house, 10 family members. Then, in a month, my sister will be doing the same for Christmas.

We're gathering with a group of other expats at a friends' home in a nearby town, San Vicente. We're doing this potluck style, and I'm cooking the 17-pound turkey, plus a sweet potato dish, plus cranberry sauce. Potatoes and cranberries are done and in the frig. I'm planning to cook the turkey, take it out of the roaster and wrap it tightly in foil, then make the gravy, then wash the roaster, then put the turkey back in the roaster, still wrapped securely in foil, for transport. Anyone have a better idea? Sure hope it works....

Default Re: Where are YOU spending YOUR Thanksgiving this year?

the only question is how much time the trip takes.

a wrapped/covered turkey will stay cozy warm for 30-45 minutes, no problem.

I have a spread sheet with auto-calculated times and I _plan_ on de-ovening the turkey _done_ at "EAT minus 60 minutes" and keep covered. I do a post slow roast max oven temp browning, so in reality it's pull the bird, get the oven up to max temp, the brown-rotate-brown-rotate-brown/yaddayadda until I'm happy so that typically works out to out of the oven at 45 mins.

the really big upside: the "rest" time lets the meat firm up and slicing is way more easier/neater/cleaner/prettier.

if appearance is not going to be an issue, yank off the legs and wings while it is still hot. it's easier to do this while the bird is still highly flexible hot, but it is also not much a big deal if you want to "platter present" the perfect bird before carving.

Wow, thanks for such a good answer! The place we are going is only about 15 minutes away, and we'll skip the appetizer phase and bring the turkey just in time for the main course to be served. I think I'll leave the wings, etc. on - it's fun for everyone to see the whole actual turkey. Enjoy your holiday!

I will be spending Thanksgiving and my weekend on the boat in mission Bay San Diego. Nice weather here in San Diego in the 80s during the day and cool crisp nights. No turkey for me.

At home this year.

No big crowds, my SIL is here, so just the three of us.

I'm at one of my nephews' House.

The enticing & luscious smell of the food being cooked here is nothing short of phenominal!!!

One of my grands nwphews - the one who likes to cook (pictured below), with my assistance, has made 2 wonderful meals since I've been here!! He wanted to do them alone, so I let him have at, but I stood by in case he needed me for something.

We all were running around like a chicken with his head cut off, shopping and getting things together for this joyous day. Even though it is chilly, there is a big break in the weather from what it was during the last leg of the trip to the house!!

We are anxiously waiting to be able to sit down, give thanks for all this wonderful food that is being prepared, and then just reap the benefits of freashly made home cooking!!

I had a wonderful Thanksgiving with my nieces and nephews.
My sons both have new wives and were off with the new family members, respectively.
Mom understood.
We had turkey, dressing, mashed potatoes with turkey gravy, green bean casserole, cran-salad and a lovely oriental salad that the other niece prepared, as well as a banana cream poke cake that drove me wild lol
Two recipes from that meal, the cake is also on Pinterest.

Since there is no dinner thread for today, I'll add that I had an open-faced Turkey Manhattan with my friend Brenda.

I think I am turkey'd out now.

Until Christmas..

Nice to hear about others' feasts - my turkey transported perfectly and I do think that the hour's rest wrapped tightly in foil might have made it better, and more moist. Guts, I hope you had great sailing and Shermie, I love to see kids wanting to learn to cook. It's so important to pass our skills on to younger generations.
