Sara had a good idea over at the other Virtual Potluck Dinner thread to start a new topic so everyone would know to join in if interested. She also had a good idea that if we want to keep this going, someone step up and kick off the December one. So, keep that thought in the back of your mind when the calendar hits December 1. A Christmas party would be tons of fun!

I would be honored to host our Farmgirl Virtual Dinner for Thanksgiving!! How about we have dinner at 4pm in the afternoon to give everyone time to get back from church and rest up a bit before the feast? I will roast a big turkey and make the gravy. How about you bring whatever favorite side or dessert that you enjoy making and which is part of your Thanksgiving tradition?

Thank-you Sara for kicking off this idea in October! We had a very fine meal and lovely gathering. Yes, wash up that apron and have it ready for 3 weeks from today!!

Meantime, I will be getting down the old turkey roaster that my Dad always used to cook our family turkey. He always gave my Mom the day off from cooking and made dinner. She made our cranberry salad and pumpkin pies the day before.

Let's get our recipes out and lists made for ingredients to get!! A Farmgirl Thanksgiving Gathering is launching now!! Who is coming? ........................

Winnie thanks for hosting. Put me down and I'll bring sweet potato pie with pecan topping. My sister has pecan trees so they will be straight from her farm.

Oh, Yummy!! Sweet Potato pie is one of my favorites and a truly southern tradition at holidays! I love that the pecans will come from your sisterís home too. I have a feeling that lots of these dishes will have local ingredients from either home gardens or local Farmerís markets.

Oh what fun to spend the day at Winnie's for Thanksgiving. I had such a great time at Sara's party. Winnie can I bring my twiced baked potato casserole. I have a lot of potatoes from the garden to use up. I can't wait to try those pies from Sara and Denise.

Barbara, you just kind of trip over each other for a while until you get used to it. When you need some time for yourself you either get up early or stay up late.

Winnie---I am going to bring corn pudding. Here is my recipe----8 oz. cream cheese softened 2 eggs, beaten 1/3 sugar 1 package corn bread muffin mix 1 16 oz. can cream style corn 2 cups fresh or frozen or canned corn 1 cup milk 2 tbls of butter melted 1 tsp. salt 1/2 tsp nutmeg (optional) Blend cream cheese, eggs, and sugar. Add remaining ingredients and mix well. Put in a 9x13 inch pan and bake uncovered for 45-50 minutes. We love this dish and I make it each year. I am leaving hubby at home---he is an old poop and a worse loner than I am. Us hens would have a miserable time and he would let me stay about 30 minutes and make me leave---as he did when we went to my cousins wedding. I will get up early and read or watch TV. We both know we need alone time---he has hobbies and is always building or doing something interesting. I told him I was retiring from dishwashing and that he could do them. That didn't sit well with him---LOL.

It's been a while since I've made turtle pie. It is made in a graham cracker crust and has caramel on the bottom it is so good. I need to go look up the recipe so I'll be ready. I may take it to our church's dinner on the 17th. It is very rich. Can't wait to try all these great sounding dishes.

Ladies---no one seems to be coming to this potluck. I will hire male strippers and bring several cases of wine. Will that be lively enough??? LOL!

Ladies---I wouldn't go to a male strip show if you paid me! And wine would make us all sick for sure I would bore you people to death for sure. But I do make a mean corn pudding!

I do know how lucky I am to have my husband as my best friend---but ladies he bored me so bad when we were dating---he actually painted little soldiers and played war games with them---still does, but he was good for me---cured my love of disco dancing and put me back to my true self---a woods woman and keeper of animals,

I love dilly beans! They make a nice side dish. Here I am the only one who likes them.

Denise, I have trained my three grandchildren (ages 6, 4, and 2) to love all things pickled, and dilly beans are their favorite. So I always have someone to make them for, and someone to eat them with! Itís what keeps me going!

Sara, I love this old photo from the 1930s. This reminds me of my Grandmother, except she cooked on a wood burning stove. Isnít it remarkable how women created delicious meals for lots of family with such humble and modest equipment by todayís standards? I love that they knew how to time and use their stoves and ovens to perfection. Do you even wish you could be taken back in time to just Be in a kitchen like this and help for just one Thanksgiving on an old farm? I do!

Glad to see you have your handy apron Winnie! Don't want to mess up our clothes.
I'd be right there in that old kitchen if I could. The little I remember about my grandma, this woman reminds me of her a lot. She had a wood cook stove for a long time. And I remember she played the piano too and loved for my aunt and I to sing with her while she played.
