    Wishing you all a blessed, happy, and safe Thanksgiving!!
    Question: I need a suggestion for a cocktail for that has a sweet potato theme.

    • Sandy Wood

      Happy Thanksgiving we”r”family. I googled sweet potato cocktails and there are lots of them out there, with tequila, vodka or bourbon bases. Most sound a little complicated, making a sweet potato simple syrup or having the equipment to juice a sweet potato. Some had a bacon garnish, you can never go wrong with bacon. Enjoy your day.

      • chacha1

        I love bacon so much !!! and love you too Sandy 🙂

        • Sandy Wood

          (((xoxoxo)))

    • SassyMcAsspants

      Anything with ginger simple syrup. If you have it, you can dump a package of crystallized ginger in boiling water to make it. That’s the quick and dirty way. 😀

      • we”r”family

        Thank you. I can cook but making cocktails is not my strong suit lol.

        • SassyMcAsspants

          Sorry. I used to be a bartender. Cocktails can get complicated in my world. 😜

      • Hi Ms Sassy!! Happy Thanksgiving my friend! ❤︎

        • SassyMcAsspants

          Hi Seuss!! Happy Turkey Day! 🥂

    • Hi We R Family!

      Try this:
      Take a scoop (1 TBSP) of sweet pot pie, 3 oz of Baileys Irish Cream, a scoop of ice, 1 oz of vodka to a blender for a few seconds (well blended) add it to a chilled martini cocktail glass and finish with dusting of cinnamon on top for garnish.

      Happy Thanksgiving! ❤︎

      • we”r”family

        That sounds perfect! Thank you so much. Hope you are having a wonderful Thanksgiving.

        • Ur welcome! If you try it, let me know how it turns out. I’m still cooking….hopefully, I’ll be done by 1pm. 😘

          • we”r”family

            I am starting it now! Doing a trial run before the party on Friday.

          • Nice! EDIT: Use a 1/2 TBSP of the pie.

  • Sandy Wood

    Happy Thanksgiving to all my American friends celebrating today!

  • Happy Thanksgiving!! 🦃 I’m in Cabo so I have no idea what we’re going to eat but I’m thinking not turkey. This is the first year we decided to vaca over the turkey day break. I have a teenager and a 7 year old and they are having so much fun here. We caught 3 Marlin well, my 13 year old and husband did while I videoed lol! It was mighty tasty grilled and in cerviche. We’re going on an off road excursion in a couple of hours. I hope you all are having a wonderful time with your family❤️

    • Happy Thanksgiving Romo! ❤︎ Love your comments, btw.

      • Thanks Seuss, I enjoy yours as well. Happy Thanksgiving😊

    • Marsbars09

      I’m so jealous Romo! I’ve always wanted to go to Cabo! What a wonderful way to spend Thanksgiving with you family.

    • Contessa Bel Raven

      Have a safe and wonderful vacay room! Best part (though for some worse part lol) of Thanksgiving is spending quality time with family so sounds like you’ve got that covered!

  • the underground train

    Happy Thanksgiving my tea family. I am thankful to have online camaraderie. I made slutty brownies. Pretty easy. Chocolate chip cookie dough on the bottom. Then later of Oreo cookies. Then brownie batter next. 3/4 of the way baking top with Marshmello.

    • Sandy Wood

      Sugar overload! Thanks so much for this tut, going straight into my recipe file, will try them out this weekend.

      • Contessa Bel Raven

        Happy Thanksgiving Sandy!

        • Sandy Wood

          Thanks for greeting Contessa, like you, a fellow Canadian here.

          • Contessa Bel Raven

            Lol well a belated Happy Thanksgiving to you!

          • Sandy Wood

            Nice that we can benefit from Black Friday sales tomorrow…eh?

          • Contessa Bel Raven

            I was just having that conversation with an American ex-pat! Glad we don’t have to deal with the Black Friday crowds to take advantage.

    • Marsbars09

      Mmm Mmm Good! My mouth is watering just reading the recipe!

    • Contessa Bel Raven

      That sounds so good! My mouth is watering. Happy Thanksgiving Underground!

  • Happy Thanksgiving to all the wonderful posters on this site! I enjoy you all very much throughout the year!!!!!!!🍗🍂🍁🌽

    • Marsbars09

  • TartLemon

    Holiday Food Police on patrol. Be sure to eat too much so you don’t get arrested.

    • Ha! Hi Tart….wishing you and the fam a Happy Thanksgiving! ❤︎

    • SassyMcAsspants

      Good, I’m glad I don’t need bail money (this time). We just all of it. I’m ready to play some Mario Kart! Lol.

      • Contessa Bel Raven

        Happy Thanksgiving Sassy! Another thing to be thankful for….we don’t need to help post your bail money! We would you know. Can’t do without your snark for too long. Hope you killed it on the Mario Kart!

        • SassyMcAsspants

          Thanks! 😜 I appreciate it, lol!

  • TartLemon

    American manufacturing doesn’t stop because it’s a Holiday. I’m retired, now, but spent many Holidays with fellow workers in a chemical plant as a shift worker. Because of the chemicals used, temps to maintain and processing those processing units cannot be stopped for a day or so. They take weeks of extremely meticulous work.

    So, to my fellow manufacturers who are out there, Happy Thanksgiving.

    • Sandy Wood

      The same sentiments to EMT/Police/Firefighters/Hospital staff and other essential service employees. Sadly, their workload is sometimes doubled as a result of others over-indulgence.

      • TartLemon

        Yep and blood donations are needed, too. Good way to spend an hour or so. Lots of good food to replenish what you gave.

        • Contessa Bel Raven

          Great idea Tart! Give blood and be thankful you are a donor and not someone in need of said blood that day!

      • Contessa Bel Raven

        Sadly the same occurs on our holidays here in Canada as well. Much thankfulness to all first responders the world over for whom not only does work not stop on that day but also doubles and more often triple due to others celebrations resulting in more emergencies. Wish everyone would follow the don’t drink and drive motto!

    • Marsbars09

      Happy Thanksgiving Tart! Very thoughtful of you to mention your fellow colleagues during this special day.

    • Contessa Bel Raven

      Happy Thanksgiving! Even though it’s not my Thanksgiving I am grateful for the same

  • Marsbars09

    Happy Thanksgiving to the posters and staff of AATT!
    I’ve been down with this website since day one (2014) and I am honored to witness how this site has evolved to the phenomenon it is today . I always look forward to reading the insightful articles provided by our excellent staff of writers, journalists and experts. They always keep us engaged and informed. And of course my dear posters who I look forward to chatting with everyday. We might not always agree on everything, but we always find a way to seek common ground and snark onward and for that I am thankful.

    • Contessa Bel Raven

      Sounds delightful Mars! Happy Thanksgiving my friend!

    • NoFixinStupid

      I LMAO here, the recaps are hilarious as are the posters!
      Happy Thanksgiving.

    • SassyMcAsspants

      Happy Snarksgiving, Mars! 😆

    • Contessa Bel Raven

      Sorry that sounds delightful was supposed to have gone under your post about the turkey tacos. I will say I am thankful as well for all you posted (with the caveat that MOST of the posters here will try to find common ground and agree to disagree w/o personal attacks) even though my 🇨🇦 Thanksgiving was last month. I can still be thankful this day in solidarity with 🇺🇸 posters. Snark on! (after turkey comatose effects wear off of course 🤣)

    • NoDuggarSperm

      Happy Thanksgiving! I adore you!

  • Marsbars09

    I ordered one dozen turkey tamales from my local taco shop to take to my sister’s house for Thanksgiving. I’ve already tried one and they’re delicious!

    • SassyMcAsspants

      Oooh! That sounds awesome!

    • Annlee57

      Happy Thanksgiving Mars, and as you said we might not always agree but at least we can agree to disagree. P.S. Turkey Tamales are sure to be a hit with your family.

    • penny 2

      My favorite tamale shop closed. So sad.

  • Contessa Bel Raven

    Happy Thanksgiving to my American friends/fellow posters/AATT writers. We had our Thanksgiving in Oct. plenty of time to use up leftovers and take off the goody weight gain before Christmas! How do ya’ll do it?

    • SassyMcAsspants

      With a wheelbarrow!

  • Annlee57

    Happy Thanksgiving to Everyone and may God bless all of you. :))

    • Contessa Bel Raven

      Happy Thanksgiving Annlee!

    • NoDuggarSperm

      Same to you!

      • Happy Thanksgiving NoDuggarSperm!

        • NoDuggarSperm

          Same to you!

  • Contessa Bel Raven

    In the spirit of Thanksgiving I will share a cookie recipe I will be making within the next few days. Place peanut butter cookie in a mini muffin tin and press down in the middle so it makes a well. Melt peanut butter and choc chips in the microwave. I use 1 1/2 – 2x choc chips than peanut butter. While still liquid pour into warm cookies. When cool it will harden to a delicious filling

    • Annlee57

      Mmmmm, sounds delicious and my family and myself love peanut butter mixed with chocolate, so thank you! 🙂

      • Happy Thanksgiving Annlee57! ❤︎

    • Wishing you and your family a bountiful Thanksgiving Contessa Bel Raven! ❤︎

  • penny 2

    In the home stretch cooking wise. Happy Thanksgiving to all!

  • Trippinhhard

    I’m late but I want to thank AATT for giving us this site to express our opinions and enjoy snarking with each other.
    What makes this site simple great is we can agree to disagree and enjoy eachother. What a beautiful thing for all of us. Life is short and live it to the fullest because we are not guaranteed tomorrow. Mama God bless each and everyone here. The writers, the staff and my fellow posters.

    • Marsbars09

      I hope you had a wonderful holiday Samra. You are one of my all time favorite posters. You are brutally honest and don’t hold back for nobody. LOL! Keep being you girl!

      • Trippinhhard

        I know it’s my best quality in person my ex told me the same thing today. I can take the truth from anyone’s perception, because the truth is just that, I might not like it at all, but I must deal with It. I was raised that way. We had a beautiful day with the twins and our 6 grandkids. I thank God we can still exist with eachother. I will never ever love another man as much as I loved my ex. Ummmm
        I’m finally fully ready to move on, I can’t look back at all.

    • Hi Samra! Miss you!!!!….wishing you a Happy Thanksgiving holiday! *muah*

      • Trippinhhard

        Good to see you back posting again Doc. Hope you had a beautiful day. I’m so tired been up since 5:00am.
        This is a day about family and friends, I have so much to be thankful for. I’m blessed and I know it so I enjoy everyday because it’s a new day. I have another chance to get it right.

        • Yes ma’am! As long as God blesses you with life…you can start fresh. Don’t stress over the past, it’s gone for a reason. Keep on…keeping it real. 😘

          • Trippinhhard

            You are so right, the past is just that,the past. I’ve had a beautiful past but it’s not my future and my future looks exciting to me because I don’t know what it’s entails.

  • CNN

    Happy Thanksgiving to the staff at AATT and the best posters in the blogsphere.
