Bet most people on here has never had that pleasure. My grandmother made some fine oyster dressing. I looked forward to that growing up. She died about 15 years ago when my oldest daughter was 2 years old. No one in the family learned her recipe. Lucky for me, my daughter has took up the cause and been experimenting with oyster dressing . She has got it pretty close to my grandmothers. But If you want oysters this year, better buy early. A shortage has pushed price up to $100 to $120 per gallon.

My grandmother and mother always made what they called scalloped oysters, probably similar to what y'all are calling oyster dressing or stuffing. I got some oysters at the grocery tonight, like last year they were from the Pacific coast, labeled as from Washington State. I fear that when my mother is no longer able to fix them I may have to try if I want them, my wife said tonight, that she will try fixing a lot of things but she has a strong aversion to oysters.

Smoked turkey and the usual sides but my favorite is my modified version of my late grandmother's cranberry salad (cook whole cranberries in a little water until softened; cool; put in a bowl and gently stir in in chopped walnuts, granny smith apples, and clementines/oranges; put in pan and cool in fridge. OH, I forgot the sweetener! I use splenda or stevia (gotta save calories for the stuffing and pie)

I’m pretty basic. l like turkey, mashed potatoes, stuffing and a homemade roll. l don’t care for pie, so l might make cookies.

I was going to say if Oyster are $100 a gallon my friends down on the Willapa Bay must be jumping for joy.

Going to the DIL in Winnemucca for Thanksgiving. Sounds like out turkey is going to be ham. Personally as long as there is plenty of pumpkin pie I don't care what else there is.

I tried to restart cranberry tradition, I bought the cheapest can and put it a bowl to serve making sure it retained
the 'can' shape as though it was a jello mold.
Nobody saw the humor in doing that, so only did it twice. :(

I can sit down and eat an entire can of cranberry sauce in one sitting. But I pretty much like anything cranberry.

Sorry to hear about that GB. You and your family are in my thoughts.
