Thanksgiving Plans

Wed Nov 24, 2021 2:53 pm
"This is the best website for people with an Ostomy, hands down. So much understanding. Everyone should join."

Hi everyone😃❤

I was just curious what everyone's plans for turkey day were? Anybody doing any travel? (Be safe). I am just having a quiet (or should I say loud 😛) dinner with my family.  What is your fave thanksgiving day staple food? Mine is definitely the stuffing🤗. Momma makes it every year. The recipe has been passed down for years through my family. No stovetop for us (although I do l love me some stovetop)..just not on Turkey day 😊

The one thing I gotta be careful of is corn. I love corn and I don't wanna get another one of those damn blockages. Not fun 😒.  Anybody have the same issue? Isn't it interesting how veggies , specifically corn come out looking  exactly the same as going in. Gross story time 😈.. One time when I had eaten corn..I was changing my bag and a corn kernel literally shot out of my stoma and hit me in the eyeball..😬 Gross..but kinda funny.

Anyways...just wants to wish everybody a very safe and happy Thanksgiving. Enjoy yourself and if anyone has any stuffing they wanna send to me ..I am taking offers 🤗

Tiffany ❤

You know.. VERY good idea!😃 I wonder if Amazon has glasses for that 🤔 if not..I smell a very good idea for Shark Tank 🦈. What would we call them? Names? How about "Spewage Specters"? 

Now I got to start a new forum topic 😉

Ooh what is a junkyard salad? That sounds like it could be a type of pasta salad and if so...🤗🤗🤗.  Pumpkin PIe is good but I am especially attached to Dutch apple pie with LOADS of whipped cream 😋. I am also fond of punches. Any kind of non alcoholic punch cuz the Tiffster dosnt drink 😇 clashes with my medicine. I do enjoy a good "drunk story" though 😉

No...

I'm still trying to figure out how your stoma points in a line to your eyeball. 🤔 Maybe it was a ricochet off the wall? Anyway, take your safety goggles 🥽 and enjoy the holiday.

I was holding Stella back..making sure I got my stoma powder all around the bottom. So she was facing me..looking at me like "ok woman you wanna eat a big Ole 2-3 cups of corn watch this". And my face was leaning in close to nake sure the powder was surrounding her. "Her" being Stella (stoma)

Stella does not like corn. Or Outback mushroom appetizers (read other post). So that is my explanation of corn spewing out of my latest orifice. I hope that clarified things 😉

Hi all and Happy Thanksgiving, my fave is home made stuffing in the bird and brussel sprouts, but not this year as my family is going to help a friend who owns a restaurant  do a benefit dinner on a donation per meal to help a couple charities.

Happy Thanksgiving All and all in good health. I am thank ful for good friends and the ability to use my own hand to make delicious meals. I made my famous Turkey with cornbread stuffing, mashed potatoes, corn casserole and a delicious pecan pie! Be safe! Mike

I just got home and I am literally crawling to my couch. I ate sooooo much 🤪. Delicious though. Now..I just have to wait until the corn kicks in. Time to get those safety goggles 😏

I usually avoid corn but there was a corn dish and I thought I'd try just a little. I got my safety goggles ready in case my stoma goes all "Tiff" on me. 👨‍🔬

Thanksgiving with friends.  Lucky to be invited; last year's restaurant attempt was a total horrible experience.  Relatives dead or the one 1500 miles away. No sob story, just reality for some of us as we age W/O children.  Dinner was a joy and the company was, for the most part, familiar.  Foo-d-amazing, Turkey, ham, pork,  sweet potato pie, mashed potatoes, 3 bean casserole & more.  4 different kinds of pies for desserts. Luckily even with an ostomy, I can eat anything-- just not a lot period. That and delicious matching wines topped off the afternoon/evening.

Tiff

..Junk Yard SLad is really a desert. It was a big hit. I don't  know why it is named that.

1 can cherry pie filling

1 lg.can crushed pineapple well drained

1can sweetened condensed milk (Eagle brand)

2 cups miniature  marshmallows 

1 cup of pecans chopped

1 8oz container cool whip

Directions : Mix in order given . Refrigerate  overnight. ( I smooth out top with extra cool whip)  just to make it look better. 

I realize you may not e be able to eat some or most of the ingredients  but it sure is always a huge hit to bring to any covered dish...

That all sounds very good. Is there a good white wine you can recommend? I am not supposed to drink with most of my medicine..but the doc says I can have a glass or two a week. Just not directly with my meds. What was your experience last year on Thanksgiving? I'm curious🤔

I live in Kentucky, but grew up in Louisiana. My sister just retired and moved back to Louisiana, so Thanksgiving was at her house this year. Thanksgiving dinner was wonderful - crawfish etouffe, a big pot of gumbo, and glazed ham for something closer to the purists' idea of Thanksgiving dinner. We did have pumpkin pie for dessert, so I guess that counts. All in all, absolutely wonderful!
