Sookie's Bon Temps Thanksgiving Menu

  I have almost 100 Sookie/  True Blood recipes on this blog and I thought we'd have a pretend Thanksgiving dinner with Sookie and the Bon Temps gang. Haha

This year Jason bought a turkey deep fryer at Sheridan’s Sport Shop and lots of peanut oil and he's going to deep fry the 10 # turkey that he bought at Walmart. It's going to be raining tomorrow so everyone will have to pile inside.

Sookie is making: Corn Bread Dressing ( not stuffing!)
Mashed potatoes
Green Bean Casserole
Sweet Potatoes with marshmallow
Gran's Pecan Pie

Below you'll find more recipes.

Who else do you think  is coming to dinner?

What are they bringing ?

Finally, some of the other True Blood fans sites follow ' Loving True Blood in Dallas' lead and stop using paparazzi photos !!

As you faithful readers know I have NEVER posted those photos on this blog as I think they are intrusive and certainly NOT in the spirit of fandom that I believe in.

I am appalled when the other sites post these paparazzi photos of our favorite True Blood actors coming in and out of Walgreen's, videos stores or just going about their daily lives with children, family and friends!

It's about time they stop and kudos to them for the policy change !

DYING FOR DAYLIGHT Game Based on Charlaine Harris’ Short Stories

I-play recently announced that they are collaborating with Sookie Stackhouse creator Charlaine Harris on an new interactive adventure game. Called Dying For Daylight, the game will be based on the character Dahlia, a vampire heroine featured in several of her short stories.
“Taking a character into the world of games is great fun and allows us to tell stories and bring characters to life in a whole new way,” says Harris. “Just like Sookie, Dahlia is a unique and multi-faceted character. Working with I-play to present her in this new way has been an amazing experience, and I can’t wait to hear what fans think of the results.”
