    4 pounds of cream cheese? That is a pretty large dip. Is that right?

    Jamaica Mistake is kinda like a Ranch style base with tons of flavor. Read the ingredience on the link. Its a little chunky with seasoning so you will need a big needle injector. Costco "use" to carry it in a larger bottle then on the web link I attached. I still have a bottle left. I think. I'm not at home right now. Havn't shopped around to see who else carries it. If you leave the marinade on the skin it will turn blackish. First time I cooked one, I thought I burned it. Thanksgiving was gonna be a disaster, and everyone was waiting onthe Turkey. First Knife slice in the bird revealed the Juiciest turkey I ever carved/Ate.

    Sausage Stuffing is my families favorite. I got the recipe in the early 80's from a good buddy from the south when I was stationed in Hawaii. Instead of doing the chow hall deal, I along with a few others would cook a large meal for everyone that worked in our office at Ft. DeRussy. I love to cook for the Squad, Platoon, or Station Feasts as it was my thing most of my Military Career.

    4 Pounds of Cream Cheese. Yes When ever I make Clam dip, my Boys eat it all day long. Oldest Son eats it with a spoon. LOL A large dip last about 2-3 days at my house.

    Turkey
    Cornbread dressing
    Green bean casserole
    Mashed potatoes
    Yams
    Marinated vegetables (Cucumbers, onions, Tomatoes soaked in a water/vinegar mixture)
    Homemade cranberry-apple-citrus sauce
    Pumpkin Pie
    Pecan Pie

    The dinner may add a few items, but this is the basics.
    It ain't about the # of pounds of meat we bring back, nor about how much we spent to go do it. Its about seeing what no one else sees.

    Glad that worked out for you Vince!!!!

    My wife said this years Turkey was the best she ever had. Settled in on 350 degrees at 3 minutes a pound. Timing is soooooo key to deep frying a turkey.

    Smoke the turkey, low and slow 180 degrees for 8-12 hours (depending on size)

    Sage stuffing, sausage added is always nice

    Garlic Parmesan Mashed Potatoes

    Brocoli salad

    Some kind of veggie casserole (Green bean or whatever works!)

    That is my yearly spread
