    "Get the canned cranberry sauce, or the *good* canned cranberry sauce?" I'm sorry, but I will stand up for people who make cranberry sauce themselves! (This message couldn't find anyone to sponsor it.)

    I'm not avoiding it. I'm going to a Thanksgiving dinner with 20+ people there. You idiots can hide under your bed for the rest of your lives for a virus that has a 99.9% survival rate.

    My GROWN niece and nephew both threw actual TANTRUMS because I convinced my elderly mother, who has a host of medical issues, not to go and celebrate with them. She was going to go anyway, but her mind was changed by the news warning about different households getting together this year. Yet, I am officially the 'outlaw' in this scenario. Better get my black clothes and some shiny things that go "pew-pew" .. ;oD

    “College kids only bring stuff home that nobody wants, piles of dirty laundry, shitty taste in beer”....hilarious, I can smell through the notebook screen. It reminded me when I went to the dormitory of my younger brother's, where six college boys live, it really smelt!!! I could not take it and washed socks and under wears for my bro for the first time as a big sister. Then I heard some boy never washed his bedsheet for over six months... just simply turned the sheet over when having a visitor.

    Factory farming and packing animals in confined spaces, like turkey farms, is how these viruses get started. Essential workers that work in these horrible slaughterhouses are exposed to unsafe working conditions. Americans will be safer by eating less meat and paying attention to how their food is prepared.

    WTF - really? Americans are so bad at cooking that the Firefighters are worried?? What the hell are you doing? Put the damn bird in the oven, set the timer and stay at your stove when it's time to make the sauce and potatoes. I'm really wondering HOW you lot managed to fight even one war. Or did you send all the competent people overseas and left the rest to deal with themselves?

    In case anyone wants some Thanksgiving joy, this is my lovely grandma's recipe. I miss her and she'd be thrilled to pass it on. Dressing: ▪︎1 hen ▪︎2 jiffy cornbread mixes (not sweet) ▪︎5 eggs ▪︎4 slices white bread (crumbled) ▪︎dried minced onions (1/3 cup or less) ▪︎(2 boxes) Swanson low sodium chicken broth -Cook hen, with broth, in pressure cooker. Save leftover broth -Bake cornbread in cast iron skillet - Crumble and mix cornbread, eggs, and white bread in 13" foil dish -***Add broth and combine with hand mixer (***don't use all the broth, just enough to be wet but not runny) -Cover top of mix with onions, probably 1/3 cup - Add chicken (dark meat removed) then combine -Bake at 350 for about 30-45 minutes, 'til golden brown (Enjoy with the people you live with! )
