A Massachusetts Turkey

We're having our usual Massachusetts turkey for Thanksgiving next week-a baked stuffed cod. With two vegetarians, there's little point preparing a turkey. Mr. Eat The Blog doesn't care for it anyway. Thanks to the generosity of a co-worker, we have venison steaks in the freezer, so perhaps I'll make him one for the day after Thanksgiving.

I don't go overboard cooking for this holiday unless we have guests which mercifully this year, we do not. Still, I understand for many, this is a yearly family gathering and a time when they go to great pains preparing a special meal. I thought this might be a good time to list a "best of" series of links, in the event you're looking for a good cornbread recipe, or cranberry relish.
