Here is the weekly round-up of the Texas Progressive Alliance. The Texas Progressive Alliance is a confederation of the best political bloggers in Texas.

With the round-up this week are links to some Texas-specific Thanksgiving recipes. With these links, you can make up a Texas Thanksgiving menu for you and yours—Wherever you live!

(Above—Texans enjoy celebrating Thanksgiving. I’m sure Disqo Disco at the Fallout Lounge in Dallas is a hopping place.)

Here is a Tex-Mex Thanksgiving lineup from the Dallas Morning News.

Southwest Flair Magazine offers up a so-called Texas-sized Thanksgiving menu. As you might suspect, this menu is quite inclusive.

Texas Cooking.com tells you how to cook a turkey. I imagine that one would cook a turkey much the same way everywhere, but maybe there is a special Texas touch. If so, here is your chance to learn this touch.

Texas Cooking.com also has instructions for a stuffing made with Texas oysters. Regular readers of this blog will know that the Texas coast is my favorite part of the state. I would indeed enjoy some oyster stuffing.

I suppose a proper Texas Thanksgiving would offer up a pecan pie. I have maybe one or two slices of pecan pie each year. But I’m not a native. Maybe native Texans eat pecan pie with every meal. A blog called Homesick Texan has a pecan pie recipe.

There you have it folks–All you need to know for a fine Texas Thanksgiving.

The round-up—

TXsharon continues to follow the abuses of Aruba Petroleum in a Barnett Shale backyard and Wednesday the Wise County Messenger picked up the story. It’s all on Bluedaze: DRILLING REFORM FOR TEXAS.

CouldBeTrue of South Texas Chisme is really p*ssed that some South Texas Democrats voted against women’s health care.

WhosPlayin posted an interview with Neil Durrance, the Democratic candidate seeking to unseat Michael Burgess in Congressional District 26.

A guest post from the ReEnergize Texas blog is the pick of the week over at Texas Vox, where we were quite disappointed that the Georgetown city council snubbed students over nuclear power.

WCNews at Eye On Williamson posts on some of the talk this past week about raising the statewide gas tax. All that being said there are only two options to pay for transportation in Texas. Which will we choose: taxes or tolls?.

McBlogger takes a look at Sen. Hutchison’s decision not to resign from her Senate seat.

Off the Kuff looks at a threatened outbreak of homophobic behavior in the Houston mayor’s race.

The War on Christmas starts early at The Texas Cloverleaf, complete with a beach landing at Walmart.

Sue Schechter announced for Harris County Clerk last week and PDiddie atBrains and Eggs caught the press release.

With Thanksgiving almost here, Neil at Texas Liberal ran a picture of a sultry pilgrim holding a turkey, and included in this post information about the status of women in colonial New England.
