    (psst, ben117, we don`t do that here. Taboo!)

    What`s with mini-marshmallows and sweet potatoes? I saw them being sold together at the market the other day and was wondering if they`re cooked together. I don`t remember the last TG dinner that well.

    Nido... sweet potatoes go amazingly well with marshmallows. Make a twice baked sweet potato and during the second baking place marshmallows on top and let them get golden brown.... *drools*

    Generally for me though, I make a sweet potato and apple casserole... without marshmallows.

    Also I get to meet completely new people this year for Thanksgiving... exciting! Though I`m told they`re all liberal tree-hugging hippies and I should be well embraced.

    That sounds wonderful, Lauraly! I`ll totally make that once I get over this damned cold! They probably won`t let me in the kitchen if I`m sniffling...

    @ Nidonemo - You haven`t had sweet potatoes and marshmallows yet? Oh. Your. God.

    Dude, you`re seriously missing out. It always ends up being my favorite dish at the table during Thanksgiving. I don`t know the details, but I think it`s largely the same recipe as in the article minus the bourbon.

    Well I guess I just haven`t had it as often as everyone else has. I`m more of a stuffing lover, myself. ^^ Actually the turkey is probably the last on my list to hit my plate.

    mmm.. favourite Thanksgiving dishes...
    Well, sweet potato and apple casserole is top, followed closely by home-made cranberry sauce, stuffing with gravy, and then the Turkey. When I did Thanksgiving with my grandparents we used to start off with a soup course as well which was always scrumptious, though it varied every year.

    And my aunts, uncles, cousins, parents, and I would always have snacks while dinner was being cooked as we sat around chit chatting and catching up. The best of which was the grapefruit acting as a stand for toothpicks with roostertail onions, cheese, oysters, and anchovies. (The last two items I didn`t touch, but I`d attack all the roostertail onions.)

    Tomorrows ganna suck. My family is soo f*cked up. Maybe I should just call, say I`m sick and act like I just threw up.....
    Just felt like writing stuff that rhymed. But really... I`m ganna have to see my 16 year old cousin and her boyfriend who is like 19... and then I`m going to have to see my other cousin who me and him had a phone fight a few months ago and haven`t talked since then.. oh and his Bisexual girlfriend (which is nothing bad I guess) and I`m going to be seeing my alcoholic aunt... (she`s the one cooking). There`s more.... oh soo much more. I won`t be on IAB tomorrow... Let just hope I live to see it again.

    Electronic devices that are meant to entertain the youth of today aren`t allowed at our family get togethers.. My nazi-wannabe Grandmother won`t allow them. I`ll be without my laptop. :( So if any one from IAB wants to head over to Ohio and save me from hell on earth.. that`d be great.

    I used to really hate family gatherings, but now that I live 3000 miles away from my family I wish I could be there.

    I`m going to be making my own thanksgiving semi-feast tomorrow for my little family of 2.

    Chances are I`m not going to start dinner until 5 or so, I`ll get a call from my family back home and then I`ll hang out on IAB the rest of the night.
    it`ll work.
