Thanksgiving Turkey Tales
Page 2 of 2

Now that the turkey is out of the way, it's time to assemble the remainder of the feast. Thanksgiving can be a bit hard on the waistline, especially when indulging in traditional dishes such as creamy mashed potatoes with gravy, savory bread stuffing with wild mushrooms and sausage, and candied yams! Whether you're looking for traditional recipes or lighter fare, or even if you need to discuss your menu plan with others, visit the Cooks Online Forum which is simply one of the best online resources for anyone doing time in the kitchen.

Assuming you have all your ducks in a row, on Thanksgiving Day, you'll be able to spend a leisurely morning enjoying a 75 year old American tradition -- The Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade. This year's parade is expected to last approximately three hours, displaying a long line of magnificent floats, marching bands and unforgettable jumbo balloons. If you've never had the pleasure of watching the likes of Rocky & Bullwinkle, Betty Boop, and Big Bird bobbing down 34th Street, you're in for a special treat. As with every other year, the grand finale is the arrival of Santa Claus, officially ushering in the Christmas season.

Whatever Thanksgiving Day means to you, may it be filled with the warmth and love of the holiday season.

Best wishes & happy surfing!
