    Me and Chris and Haven are coming. Bringing potato salad and wutever I feel like making on that day. And a bottle of wine. ANd another 2 or 3 friends will come too, bringing 3-4 bottle of wine.

    Hold off on bringing an army just yet Cress, this is aimed at forum users first, and I don’t yet know how many people are showing.

    Again, anyone wanting to come to this should be confirming in here, and giving an idea of what you’ll be bringing.

    I’m not saying ‘No!’, I’m just saying hold tight until I know how many people from on here are coming yet until they confirm.

    15 pound turkey ordered, I hope it fits in my oven!!

    I’m planning on having everything cooked and ready at 7-7:30, though I’ll be prepping all afternoon, so please feel free to head round from 5-6ish to help me out!!

    This will be some good good eats!

    Brendan, is there a list of stuff people are bringing? I’m not sure what I should bring. I can bring pie with whipped cream, good imported beer, etc. Any suggestions?

    Failed; burned the cake. No clue if I had missed any step or ingredient. But still, I blamed on my grandma’s ancient rice cooker. 🙂

    How about some szechuanese style chicken feet? Never done that before for Thanksgiving. Wondering how would they go with pies, turkey, and casserole. LOL

    Just found this site, and is it too late for join now? I had a pretty good thanksgiving party last year, but friend left Chengdu. So… I miss it so much!

    The only list I have so far is what people have posted on here. Anyone I’ve invited outside of the forum, I’ve asked them to just bring a bottle of wine, or other. Import beer would see no complaints!

    No, no, no, and no, and I can only assume you’re joking!! 😉

    Not at all! Anyone reading this right up to Thursday will be welcome. Come along.

    @ Brendan, Gonna have to get my 5×5 102.5 kg squats on before work! So i’m going to bring some delicious stew compliments of my roomie, Hiroshi. He also does catering, so I’m trying to promote his cooking.

    Officially the most unrelated comment in this entire thread! But thanks for the heads up on your squat routine!! :/

    I’m going to have to admit, I will be hitting the gym hard on Wednesday night, with deliberate intention of priming myself with the perfect excuse for a giant feast on Thursday. Hell, I’ll probably even stop eating around midday just to be able to cram in some more calories!! 😉

    No doubt. Thanksgiving is the Superbowl of buffets.
