  6. 1. How old do you have to be to move up from the kids’ table?

    If you moving up means an adult is displaced, then, sorry, you aren't moving up. This happened to me. My nephews thought just because they were of adult age they could move to the adult table. This meant because they were in line ahead of me, I had to sit at the kids' table. Peeved me off especially since I don't see family very often because I live out of town. Everybody else lives in the same area.

    2. Stuff the turkey or cook stuffing separately? (aka salmonella or not?)

    Stuffing separately

    3. Who sits at the head of the table?

    My oldest brother (my dad passed away almost 20 years ago). Head of table is also known as the prayer chair so I am OK not sitting there.

    4. Pumpkin, pecan, apple pie?

    Apple all the way

    5. What the hell is mince meat?

    No idea. In my mind, it has a minty flavor.

    6. Is it okay to play Christmas music on Thanksgiving?
    Sure but seems like football is always on instead.

    7. In five words or less, worst Thanksgiving memory?

    only have bad Christmas memories

    8. Speaking of leftovers. Who gets dibs on them?

    Whoever brought the dish although there is usually plenty for whoever wants them. Except for the butterhorns. There may be fights over those.

    9. Worst Thanksgiving food?

    Cranberries, not a fan of yams either

    10. Best Thanksgiving quick joke?

    I tried to come up with a Squanto joke but can't think of any.

  13. Mince meat, as in mince pies traditionally served at Christmas in the uk, is made from dried fruit, nuts, spices, sometimes suet, and hopefully brandy. Food of champions!!! But then I'm British so I'm a bit biased. I'm living in Australia now and most people over here hate it too. They don't like black pudding also....strange lot....

    ReplyDelete
  14. I'm australian, and to us 'mince meat' is ground beef like for hamburgers and spaghetti sauce, or for a delicious meat pie. The above commenter who mentioned British 'mince pies' made from fruit mince is correct, Aussies don't like them! Don't worry, we are just as weirded out by your food (marshmallows in sweet potato sounds so bad).

  15. My inlaws make aspic and it is as awful as it sounds. I would never eat it, the smell alone is terrible.
