Some thanksgiving ideas...

Here are some of the fun things we have cooked on Thanksgiving:

Turkey rolls! You can use any roll dough. I used cloves as the turkey's eyes.
[updated 11/18/09: Here's the recipe I used for the rolls]



Another year we grilled turkey legs, like those you find at the agricultural fairs. Mmmm...


We have also grilled a turkey breast. It came out pretty good, but the seasoning didn't penetrate much. My husband wants to do it again this year, although I am not sure what recipe. This time, we'll be using smoking chips for sure.

Last year, I wanted to make caramel apple turkeys. I made the apples, but didn't have time for the turkey. The idea was that the apple would be the body and the feathers could be attached to the stick. Then a head would be stuck on front. If I do it this year, I'll let you know. If you try it, let me know too :-)
