My family always called it dressing, but whatever I like it smothered in Turkey Gravy, I can make a meal on it!
Happy Thanksgiving to all the Staff and Members of AMAC, MAY America overcome stupidity, and the silly season of 2024!
God Bless America!

I chose Other because my favorite was not on the list. It is Cornbread Dressing. I suppose some people call it stuffing, but we’ve never stuffed it inside the bird. It’s base is cornbread. It’s a grand ol’ Southern tradition. Happy Thanksgiving Y’all!

There’s more to Thanksgiving than the meal. Below you will find my latest post to SubStack regarding this holiday. Enjoy!

GRATEFUL OR WOKEFUL?

What is the first thing that comes to mind when you think of Thanksgiving? Is it the joy (or fretfulness) of gathering with loved-ones? Is it the mouth-watering thoughts of a lavish spread of food that we gobble down (excuse the pun), while looking forward to left-overs? Is it preparing a strategy of in-person shopping on Black Friday (we can still say black Friday, can’t we?) Is it the lengthy to-do list in preparing for meals and guests? Is it the binge-fest of watching football games? Or, is it something else…perhaps reflection with a thankful heart?

Gratitude and thankfulness are feelings or expressions of appreciation and/or indebtedness for something or someone. Gratitude seems to have a more lingering affect than thankfulness, since it is something on which we ponder long after the incident that caused it. Regardless, both are great qualities to exercise as often as we can.

“Always give thanks to God the Father for everything, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ.” Ephesians 5:20

So the thought comes to mind, do far left-leaning “wokesters” view Thanksgiving with gratitude? Do they take time to express thanks for their blessings? And, what are those blessings for which they might be thankful? Here’s a possible list of their perceived blessings:

1.    They are thankful that the Biden administration continues to make responsible tax-paying citizens pay for the irresponsible people who have student loan debt. This SAVE plan includes approving $127 billion in relief for nearly 3.6 million borrowers. When did we get to a place where you blatantly place your financial mis-steps and burdens on others and be thankful of such?

2.    They are thankful that abortion is legal, with no restrictions, in eight states in the US. Additionally, in twenty more states abortion is legal with some restrictions. Twenty-one states have banned abortion after 6-18 weeks, while the remaining four states have their abortion laws still pending in the courts. Bottom line, too many people are celebrating and being thankful for the war against life of the innocent unborn. 

3.    While repeated efforts to eradicate free speech in America, the ignorant leftists are thankful for exercising their free-speech rights to non-peacefully march in our cities denouncing Israel and siding with Hamas, who will use any means possible to annihilate all Jews. Of course, the majority of these protesters don’t have a clue about the facts of who Hamas is. And, many of these protesters are from the LBGTQ+++ community. Perhaps if they feel so strongly about backing Hamas, they should leave America and go hang out with Hamas and see how long it takes to be thrown off a building for being part of the “alphabet soup” group.

“You are descendants of the prophets. You have received the agreement God made with your ancestors. He said to your father Abraham, ‘Through your descendants all the nations on the earth will be blessed.’”  Acts 3:25

4.    They are thankful for the current administration’s refusal to close and protect our borders from all aliens who illegally enter our country. Many of these folks have been blatantly invited by our president to come to America where they can engage in drug trafficking, child sex trafficking, gang activity, terrorist activity, and flood our cities without a place to live or work. But, not to worry, these illegals are thankful because they are given lavish benefits of housing, food, clothing, phones, and a monthly stipend…all on our tax-payer dollars. Yet, now that the numbers are exceeding what the left thought possible, liberal community leaders are not so thankful now. Hmm, I wonder why?

5.    They are thankful because there remains a high number of school districts that allow and promote socialist curricula, like CRT, and destroy lives of children through gender-studies even before they have learned multiplication and division, all while leaving parents in the dark. We would be more than grateful if we had elected officials who would adopt universal school choice policies and get rid of the federal Department of Education so that our students could actually learn to read, write, learn math, learn about civics, and learn problem solving skills. This could become a reality through elections and much prayer.

6.    They are thankful that so many Soros’-backed district attorneys, city and county council members, and registrar of voters who are running and ruining our communities. They love that corruption continues to flow, rampant crime is ignored, and that fraud in our elections will continue…or will it? Again, we need to exercise all of our options to reverse these trends, and of course, pray!

7.    They are thankful that the current administration is pulling out all the stops to rid all fossil fuels. Yes, they are thankful for these insane policies, but will they be thankful if this does come to complete fruition? When the reality finally sinks in that these “green” energy methods and devices require fossil fuels in their production, what will they think then? What will they do when our landfills are loaded with used up solar panels and windmills? What will they do when they can no longer get electricity into their homes because natural gas (which the left wants to abolish) is necessary in the generation and production of electricity? Think of it, no heat, no lights, and hundreds of electric vehicles sitting in driveways. I guess this is the result of a few decades of dumbing down of America in our schools that has brought us to this point. Could all of this ignorance and dismantling of our nation be a result of our turning our backs on God?

“Truly, these times of ignorance God overlooked, but now commands all men everywhere to repent,“                                                                                                   Acts 17:30

 Well, enough of Thanksgiving from a “woke” point of view. It’s time to begin preparing this Thanksgiving meal, as well as our hearts for reflective gratitude. We have so many blessings about which to be thankful, it would be a joy to declare just a few of them. First and foremost, we have a God who loves us and wants the best for us now, and for all eternity. This is something about which we should ponder with gratitude each day of the year.

We are thankful that we still live in a Republic that has a Constitution based on Godly principles allowing us freedoms that many nations sadly do not have. The challenge is to keep our republic and ensure that our leaders will be obedient to the Constitution, as well as God’s laws.

We are thankful that we can associate with a community of like-minded conservative and common-sense citizens who love God and love our country. We have been and continue to be in a battle that, with God’s help, can be won. We just need to remain courageous, diligent, hard-working, and faithful that He will guide us to victory. May God bless you, your family and friends, and may God bless America!  Be thankful on this Thanksgiving and every day!

Thanksgiving is turkey with dressing (or stuffing). Unfortunately, for about the past 10 years my youngest daughter has complained that the meat for Thanksgiving dinner is Not turkey and has always been ham. In addition, she is complaining that she doesn’t like turkey. My daughter and her family (2 boys) live in my home and her husband agrees with absolutely everything she says to the point that his likes/dislikes are exactly like hers basically since birth. Claim they do not like chicken either, but I have seen them eating both numerous times.
This year we are Finally having Turkey and stuffing…Yay!…but not until tomorrow because today they went to his family’s house. I’m going to have a frozen burrito and frozen mushroom risotto for my Thanksgiving dinner tonight. That’s a step-up I guess, as a few different years I have had PB&J for Thanksgiving or Christmas dinner.

Cornbread dressing is our family’s first choice. It’s a southern thing. We build around the turkey and ham. We are so blessed.

I put Other because we have no family to share with, I’d smoked chicken thighs and pork tenderloins, so we’ll eat on that for weeks to come, wifey already made cranberry sauce but we usually have that year-round, COVID pretty much wiped out my ability to taste anything but coffee. Blessings to everyone who has family to share the day with, Jesus is so good to us, keep yer powder dry.

My #1 is stuffing and I probably eat it for about a week after Thanksgiving. Another delight is something the Brits call “Bubble and Squeak”, whish is the sound made by a mixture of turkey and stuffing when made into a patty and fried.

First thanksgiving without mom. She kept us together these last few years. She’d be disappointed in us. I tried as the oldest but maybe it was for the best. They’ll come around. At least I have the memories and great friends. Holding out hope Christmas will be better.

Stuffing is cooked inside the turkey, my favorite is oyster stuffing while dressing is cooked separately from the turkey.
My favorite part of holiday season is eggnog, especially the home made kind.
Merry Christmas all

I selected stuffing and Other. The “other” is a dessert salad we call Aunt Tootie’s Salad that has been in the family since the invention of marshmallows, The salad contains: Red grapes, dates, maraschino cherries, pecans, crushed pineapple, chunk pineapple, marshmallows and a cream cheese, cherry jello, cherry juice base. It’s to die for…Happy Holidays to ALL the wonderful American loving patriots on this site. I am thankful for this community of patriots. God bless each of you.

Interesting poll, all that you listed are good, but turkey was always my least favourite dish, unless my mother made creamed onions to put over it. Then it was palatable; i have changed somewhat in my opinion of turkey. As far as stuffing, love it, but in our house now we refer to it as “druffing”, since it is both dressing and stuffing, hence ‘druffing”! Cranberry sauce is good, whole berry the preferred, but I would much prefer cranberry-orange relish! Anybody got a good recipe?
Thats enough comment for now, but leftover mashed potatoes make the best potato pancakes with eggs and bacon!!!!!

I chose turkey and cranberry sauce. However, I’d like to specify

  1. Publix smoked turkey (best to not heat up the whole bird but cut portions and heat up either in a frying pan or microwave so meat doesn’t dry too much)
  2. This cranberry sauce/relish:

2 cups cranberries
1 large apple, peeled, cored and quartered
2 clementines, peeled and sectioned
¼ cup sugar or to taste
¼ cup chopped pecans
1 tsp shredded fresh ginger
1 tsp dried orange peel, rehydrated
  In a food processor, pulse together cranberries and apple until coarsely chopped; transfer to a medium bowl. Cut clementine segments in half over the bowl, making sure all juice lands into the bowl. Add remaining ingredients and stir until combined. Cover and refrigerate overnight. Serve chilled.
 Based on 13 servings: 66 calories, 14 carbs
I found this recipe online maybe fifteen years ago and we haven’t made anything else since. Unfortunately I didn’t copy the link and now the recipe isn’t online anymore so I can’t give credit to whom it belongs. This recipe is one of the things we are most thankful each Thanksgiving!

Turkey and stuffing wins, because I don’t make a big bird the rest of the year. And this year was exceptional, as I was a guest instead of the cook. Life is good.

Other, an old family recipe from the old world, or so I have always been told. Gnocchi, sauerkraut and sausage links (halved), all baked up and served in a small casserole dish. Don’t knock it til you have tried it! It was the dish we all fought over around the dinner table….in a good way!
