    BROOMFIELD, Colo. (CBS4) – This Thanksgiving, Scott and Heidi Henkel opened their home in Broomfield to an old friend — Ahmad Saddiqi and his wife Haria and their four children. Scott and his army buddies were very close with Ahmad 14 and 15 years ago in Afghanistan when he helped them as a translator. “He’s doing awesome. Yeah, doing great,” Scott Henkel said. “When he talked about feeling happy because he’s able to give his kids a future, that’s the kind of person that he is. He’s an incredibly selfless individual.” (credit: CBS) Scott and his army buddies realized this year, they had to get them out. In an intense labor of pressure and nonstop effort, they were successful in helping to get the family out of Afghanistan before it fell. In October, the family arrived, nervous about a new country, but thankful. “We’ve been everything from the Taliban is knocking at my door to now he’s at my table eating dinner with me,” Scott said.

    Let Jimmy Kimmel’s latest hairstyle serve as a Thanksgiving cautionary tale. The comedian took to Instagram on Thursday to show off his latest hairdo, which turned out a bit crispier than he’s used to:   View this post on Instagram   A post shared by Jimmy Kimmel (@jimmykimmel) “happy thanksgiving everyone. try not to burn your hair and eyebrow off lighting the oven!” Kimmel captioned the post. Poking fun at her father, and implying this mishap has happened before, the late-night host’s daughter Katie Kimmel commented, “Again?????” “Yep. It’s now a holiday tradition,” he replied, likely referencing a similar Fourth of July accident. During an appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show last year, Kimmel shared that he lost his beard, lashes, and an eyebrow after his grill exploded on the Fourth of July. “Oh nooooo,” celebrity chef Jamie Oliver commented on the recent picture. Perhaps proud of the Jackass nature of the incident, Johnny Knoxville replied to the picture with two laughing emojis, adding, “happy thanksgiving!” Kimmel is in good company despite the blunder, with celebrity chef Marcel Vigneron admitting similar things have happened to him in...

    Halloween is like a signpost on the parkway of life, every year it pops up announcing that we are leaving normalcy and entering the dangerous holiday zone, which begins any second now and ends with a pot of black eyed peas on January 1. As you read this, airline tickets are being purchased, menus planned, phone calls made. Some folks have even begun hurling barbs at friends and family to start their first arguments of the season! It was in the spirit of these times that I found myself musing on what I actually look forward to about Thanksgiving dinner. It wasn’t quite an Oprah-style meditation on what I’m thankful for in a big, life affirming way, but more of what I look forward to and, perhaps more importantly, what I’d be happy to never see happen at my holiday table again. I can’t wait for oysters, and oyster stuffing. I’m looking forward to writer Calvin Trillin’s plea for us all to eat Spaghetti Carbonara, or at least my dad’s yearly championing of this idea. I love my friend Evelyn’s...

    PITTSBURGH (KDKA) – The numbers are always alarming and will get your attention. House fires, mostly starting in the kitchen, increase 300% on Thanksgiving Day.

    Marty Rogers speaks with the Today Show's Craig Melvin. Marty Rogers is nothing less than the South Bronx’s Thanksgiving Day saint. For more than four decades, Rogers, 66, has served turkey, stuffing, and pie to those in need—never missing a one.  Rogers’ Thanksgiving dinner at the Immaculate Conception Church started in 1977 when there was a senior center in the church hall.  "This is our 44th year in a row, never missed a Thanksgiving dinner," Rogers tells Today Show host Craig Melvin.  Over the years, the traditional dinner has evolved into feeding those experiencing homelessness.  "They come in the door, they get welcomed, they get a name tag," Rogers said. "And I get to play maitre d'. 'How's the food?' 'Is everything okay with you guys?' And at the end, they come around with seconds of pies. I love to see people [say], 'I can't eat no more.'" But this Bronx saint and native doesn’t leave people in need out in the cold for dinners that aren’t  on holidays. Rogers also operates a food delivery program called "Hope Walks," where he leads volunteers on trips to deliver...

    Can you get food from Burger King on Thanksgiving? The road trips to see family on holidays can be long, hard, and boring. Heck, you may find yourself leaving your house early, their house late, or just running late in general. It can be hectic. Even more hectic if you’re going to two or three different locations on the same day. Maybe this Thanksgiving you’re leaving your mom’s house to go to your friend’s house and somehow will end up missing dinner at both locations. That’s when you’ll want to stop along the way and get something to eat. So will you be able to stop at, say, a Burger King this year to get food? It’s not unrealistic to plan for an unconventional meal on Thanksgiving. Meals get delayed and people are always rushing about. Maybe someone undercooks the turkey or overcooks the pies (the horror), and you may feel those hunger pangs bubbling up. Getting some chicken fries can help hold you over, especially if someone is serving their Thanksgiving dinner later than usual this year.Burger King Thanksgiving...
    Will you be able to get Chick-fil-A on Thanksgiving? They’ve done it again, for the fourteenth straight year your parents overcooked the turkey. While you prefer dark meat, burnt-to-a-crisp-black might be a little too dark for your bird this year. So what can you do when your relatives overcooked the turkey, turned the mashed potatoes into a slurry, and created a stuffing brick due to a lack of stock? You could always trie Chick-fil-A. Well, that is if they’re open. See, not a lot of places are open on Thanksgiving. It’s one of those rare holidays where you need to stock up plenty beforehand, otherwise, you’re out of luck. So if your parents or in-laws or spouse destroyed Thanksgiving dinner, you may need to find an alternative. Maybe you know going into the dinner that it’s going to be bad and that one relative is going to make their turkey gravy pudding with apple slices again for the main dessert. You’re going to want to avoid eating their mangled dessert, and the best way to do that is to already...

    LOS ANGELES -- If you have a furry friend at home, vets want you to be extra aware of what you're feeding them from the dinner table this holiday season.According to Dr. Sehaj Grewal, a veterinarian at The Melrose Vet in Los Angeles, it's OK to have your pets around the dinner table, but it's better to keep them in an enclosed area to prevent a potential trip to the vet."It is common, unfortunately. But most of the cases I have seen usually resolve with supportive care," Dr. Grewal said.

              moreby Bethany Blankley   As Americans prepare for Thanksgiving this year, traveling and cooking a family dinner will be significantly more expensive. Inflation has increased by more than 6.2% this year, according to the consumer price index (CPI), representing the highest rate of price hikes in nearly 31 years. In January 2021, before Biden “took over the presidency, annual inflation was at a stable 1.4 percent,” Americans for Tax Reform notes. “While inflation has already hit American families hard, President [Joe] Biden is pushing policies which would make this problem even worse.” Alfredo Ortiz, president and CEO of the Job Creators Network, argued earlier this year, before inflation and gas prices hit current highs, that “President Biden has repeatedly promised that he won’t raise taxes on American families earning less than $400,000 per year. Yet widespread and growing inflation due to his policies is – at least indirectly – breaking that promise. Call it the Biden inflation tax.” Those traveling this holiday season can expect to pay more at the pump as gas prices increased 49.6% year-over-year, according to CPI; fuel oil increased 59.1%.

    President Joe Biden will spend his Thanksgiving holiday at a private billionaire’s compound as inflated costs continue to surge for lower and middle class Americans. The president landed in Nantucket, Massachusetts, on Tuesday where he is expected to celebrate Thanksgiving with Carlyle Group co-founder David Rubenstein, according to Fox News. The Biden family has spent the holiday on the island for several decades, but canceled their plans in 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Meanwhile, the price of the average Thanksgiving dinner has risen more than 14% from the previous year, according to the American Farm Bureau Federation’s annual Thanksgiving dinner cost survey. The report further shows that the average Thanksgiving dinner for six people will cost an approximate $53.31, with the cost of turkey alone skyrocketing by 24% in comparison to the previous year. A recent Trafalgar poll revealed that 52% of Americans say inflation forced them to change their holiday plans in accordance to the rise in food prices and shortages.

    LOS ANGELES (KABC) -- Thanksgiving is a wonderful time to gather with family and friends, but dinner table talk can sometimes lead to awkward and uncomfortable conversations."Now you add COVID to it, it's been a couple of years, people are now worrying about do I wear a mask, who is vaccinated, who is not," said Anabel Basulto, a licensed marriage and family therapist at Kaiser Permanente.Basulto said it's best to avoid talking about sensitive topics, especially politics. But COVID and vaccination status is a conversation to talk about."I think you know who you are inviting and who is vaccinated and who is not. And just talk about it right off the bat. Just make an announcement and say I know some of us are not vaccinated and some of us are,'" said Basulto. "And then drop it and move on to your next activity."According to Basulto, anyone who is a guest at another family's dinner should avoid drinking too much."People tend to overdrink when they're anxious to try to relax and that can create problems for you," said Basulto. "Just...

    An article in The Washington Post Wednesday argued that climate change could result in replacing Thanksgiving staples with lab grown meat, plant-based meat alternatives and crickets. Hot summers, wildfires, droughts and flooding could damage American agriculture and make seasonal favorites like pumpkins and turkey hard to come by, according to the article’s authors. The piece explained that weather events are already forcing farmers to relocate certain crops: southerners are moving their turkeys northward due to hurricane risks, and warm weather in the Northeast is making cranberry crops more vulnerable. (RELATED: Companies That Want You To Eat Bugs Are Cropping Up Across Europe) While climate change affects agriculture, according to the article, agriculture also perpetuates climate change. “Agriculture is responsible for up to 30 percent of global greenhouse-gas emissions and 70 percent of freshwater use,” the authors reported.

"A heaping serving of political back and forth with your cranberries and stuffing? No way, say Americans, who would far rather feast on the big meal than feud with each other on Turkey Day," said Tim Malloy, a polling analyst with Quinnipiac University. The poll also asked how much people plan on giving...

    PITTSBURGH (KDKA) – The numbers are always alarming and will get your attention. House fires, mostly starting in the kitchen, increase 300% on Thanksgiving Day. It is the single worst day of the year for house fires and there is a central cause. READ MORE: Pittsburgh Weather: Dry And Pleasant Thanksgiving EveIt’s not just about turkey deep fryers catching fire, house fires of all types spike on Thanksgiving Day. It’s the last thing anyone wants to see while cooking Thanksgiving dinner. “I’ve been to my fair share of Thanksgiving-related fires and prefer not to,” said Brian Kokkila. Kokkila is the assistant fire chief in Pittsburgh and Sharon Cooksey is with Kidde, the fire protection company. “Leading causes – unattended cooking,” Cooksey said. “So, you know, you have a robust gathering, the doorbell rings, and people are coming in and out. There’s just a lot going on, which is why we strongly recommend that everyone stay in the kitchen when they’re cooking.” “We’ve got multiple burners going, people are frantic,” Kokkila added.

    Right away you feel like you’ve entered a haunted house. Well, at least New York City’s version of one: an unrenovated pre-war tenement in Chinatown. The paint on the walls is either peeling or has developed constellations of bulbous blisters, like a gross infection. Water damage has polka-dotted the ceiling with discoloration. Moans and creaks come from pipes and floorboards, but mostly are just omnipresent, their sources unknown. As light bulbs blow, darkness joins hands with the unsettling noises. The question of whether you’re hearing and seeing creepy neighbors or something else entirely is enough to cause mass blood-pressure spikes among those watching each time a character wanders alone into one of the apartment’s many shadowy corners. From its first frame, The Humans delivers grade-A horror—though maybe not the kind you’re expecting. This is a film about things far scarier than what goes bump in the night. It is about a working-class family coming together for Thanksgiving. Chilling. And cheekily—or spectacularly—it hit theaters and premieres on Showtime just in time for Thanksgiving. Stephen Karam adapted and directed this adaptation of...
    President Biden was simply paying more lip service to the inflation and oil price crisis when he ordered the release of 50 million barrels of oil from the United States' Strategic Petroleum Reserve, Jesse Watters said Tuesday on "The Five". While 50 million barrels may seem like a large amount of the precious commodity, the nation will use that up in about 2½ days, Watters said. "Joe does not seem very concerned, does he? He wants higher prices – I guess he said it makes it easier to transition to green [energy]," he said. "He does not want to pay a political price, so they do the silly release, which is nothing."

    It is going to cost more for Illinoisans to stock the grocery cart for Thanksgiving dinner this year. Assuming 10 family members and friends are at the table, the usual holiday menu of turkey, stuffing, sweet potatoes, rolls with butter, peas, cranberries, a veggie tray and pumpkin pie, along with coffee and milk, will cost an average of $53.31, or just over $5 a person, according to the American Farm Bureau Federation’s annual survey. That is up 14%, or $6.41 from the 2020 average of $46.90. The only item that dropped in price was the stuffing mix, down 19% from last year. Adjusted for inflation, Thanksgiving costs are up for the first time since 2015 and 7% higher than last year, Farm Bureau data shows. The Illinois Farm Bureau participated in the survey as well. The Illinois cost is higher than the national average, with the tally of a Thanksgiving feast for 10 coming in at $58.15, or an 8% increase from the national average. In recognition of changes in Thanksgiving traditions, the IFB price survey also includes ham, potatoes...
    Oklahoma state football coach Mike Gundy had an incredibly deep answer when discussing Thanksgiving side dishes. In a video tweeted by Cayden McFarland, the head coach of the Cowboys was talking about how he loves Thanksgiving sides, and he got into why they’re not served all year. (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football) The reason in his mind? Society simply moves too fast and people don’t take time to have a proper dinner.

The poll, conducted from Nov. 11 to Nov. 16 by Republican-leaning Trafalgar Group, found that 51.3% of the respondents chose inviting Rogan over to their holiday dinner compared to only 48.7% who said they would rather host Fauci.
