Share your Thanksgiving memories.
Thursday, November 22, 2012
The holidays are all about family, traditions and memories. It’s a chance to reconnect with family and friends whether through a card, email, phone call or catching up over dinner. Thanksgiving doesn’t have the cache of Christmas. There are no gifts or commercialism to distract us and because of this Thanksgiving is many people’s favorite holiday. Every family has its own traditions and memories that bring a smile. That favorite memory might be a big football game, but most likely it’s a special moment you shared with a loved one -- possibly someone who has since passed away. Patch wants to know: What is your favorite Thanksgiving memory? Let us know in the comment section. Happy Thanksgiving!

Food ideas for people whose Turkey Day involves no turkeys.
On Thursday, many will be doing the Thanksgiving scramble: Running to the inlaws' house, hitting the store for some last minute cranberry sauce, or checking on the bird in the oven every five minutes. What some consider the best meal of the year, fit for kings and gluttons, is centered around meat. Not all of us, for varying reasons, choose to eat meat, though. What is one supposed to prepare for those who don't eat turkey on Turkey Day? The answer is easy, and the options are many. Whether you're cooking for a vegetarian guest, or are a vegetarian yourself, Patch helps you out this week with five tasty recipes for a vegan/vegetarian Thanksgiving. 1. Tofurky: Funny sounding name, seriously tasty substitute. What you need: 1 Tofurky Roast (…

This is an item even a person who fears the kitchen can make.
So you get that call early next week from the host of your Thanksgiving dinner (maybe it's your mother, grandmother, a friend or even somebody you barely know), and the person tells you in so many words that this meal isn't free. You don't have to pay for the food, but you must contribute to the meal. "Uh-oh! I can barely handle microwaving a Hot Pocket," you think to yourself. What do you do? Do not just go to the store and buy a box of instant mashed potatoes. Trust me, they'll notice. But don't freak out, not all recipes are complex. It is possible for those whose cooking experience is limited to stirring ramen noodles to contribute a tasty food item to the Thanksgiving meal. The following recipe for cranberry sauce is from my mother …

The Black Knights football team traveled to Canton and beat the Bulldogs for the seventh consecutive year on Thanksgiving.
Stoughton junior Aaron Mack had four touchdowns and the Black Knight defense turned in one of its best efforts of the season as the Stoughton High football team beat Canton High School, 27-7, Thanksgiving morning in Canton. The win marked Stoughton’s seventh straight Thanksgiving victory over Canton and the 15th in the last 17 years. During this current seven-year win streak, which dates back to 2005, Stoughton has outscored Canton 229-35.

The Bulldogs score a 28-24 win at Stoughton in the annual Wednesday before Thanksgiving flag football game between senior girls in Canton and Stoughton. The ending of the game was controversial, however.
In what can only be described as a controversial ending, at least from a Stoughton perspective, the Canton High senior girls beat the Stoughton senior girls, 28-24, in Wednesday's annual Powderpuff Football Game. Stoughton played host to this year’s game—which went down to the final play, with the two team’s combining for three touchdowns in the final four minutes of action. Stoughton trailed 22-12 late in the second half, but with 3:37 left, Alicia Macomber broke a 50-yard touchdown run, bringing the Black Knights within four. On the ensuing Canton drive, the Bulldogs converted a fourth and 12 with less than two minutes to play. The first down would have likely sealed the deal for Canton, but the Bulldogs fumbled at the end of the run, …
