Well now that my MIL is staying in the area in an assisted living place, it's a bit hard to invite her over, between the dog and the kids leaving their stuff all over the floor... so we're going to the restaurant, there's a Thanksgiving buffet there. And one of hubby's brothers and his gf are coming over for a couple days. Going to miss the leftover but not having to cook anything is pretty nice.

Just my family here at home. We always make tons of Thanksgiving food, decorate the house for Christmas, and get a newspaper to plan for Black Friday the next day.

I usually make:

Turkey - slathered in mayo and spices and stuffed
Stuffing - I don't eat it, but everyone else does.
Green beans - in a vinaigrette usually with sliced almonds. No casserole.
Carrots and apples with brown sugar glaze
Mashed potatoes
Sweet potato something - usually with crispy oats on top
cornbread and buttermilk biscuits
strawberry spinach salad
stuffed mushrooms
pumpkin pie and chocolate chip cookies
Mom makes a ham usually, I think.

I might do a zucchini/carrot/squash/potato dish instead of the carrots and apples this year.

We're having friends and family over. As has become our tradition, everyone is welcome to our table. we're expecting anywhere from 6-20 people. I'm making my usual vast quantities of food, especially because Thanksging leftovers are the best thing EVER. I have a wonderfully obese 25 lb turkey already in the freezer. We're having:

-turkey
-ham
-bread stuffing
-cornbread stuffing
-homemade Parkerhouse rolls
-garlic mashed potatoes
-candied sweet potatoes
-green bean casserole
-jalapeno poppers (jalapenos stuffed with cream cheese and wrapped in bacon)
-rice
-shrimp and veggie stir-fry. Sounds weird, but it's traditional for my family.
-homemade cranberry sauce
-pecan pie
-pumpkin pie
-apple pie
-rum cake.

I can't wait. Thanksgiving has always been my favorite holiday.

We are having it at home. My brother will be here. He lives 2 hrs. away and maybe my aunt will come over. So it will just be my parents, my brother, and possibly my aunt.

We usually have:

*Turkey (duh ;0))
*Candied Sweet Potato Bake. We use real sweet potatoes. We have been using canned yams which are repulsive and the real sweet potatos are GOOD!
*Homemade Rolls.
*Veggie Tray. Which will probably be: Carrots, Celery with Pimento spread or Cream Cheese, black olives, cauliflower, pickle slices, tomatos, etc.
*2 kinds of Stuffing. One is cooked in the turkey, the other is not.
*Cranberry Sauce. Jellied and Whole Berry
*Mashed Potatos and Gravy

For dessert:
*Pumpkin Pie
*Chocolate Cream Pie
*And sometimes apple or cherry pie.

We usually have a snack tray while the turkey is cooking. Usually chips and dip, a couple kinds of crackers with cheese and lunch meat or salami. And veggies and ranch.

I really don't like Thanksgiving, so it's never anything I look forward to. I'm glad that I won't be expected to spend the night up there this year though! We'll just go up for a few hours and then I'll get to sleep in my own bed
I hear you.

I'm not sure who came up with the idea that something that entails hours and hours of preparation, then hours and hours of cleanup is anything a woman could possibly consider a holiday.

I had no idea you could buy fake (Canned?) yams or sweet potatoes

Well we have been buying canned yams.. and I know why nobody eats it. Not even me. So mushy! Last year my mom bought some real sweet potatos for the sweet potato bake.. and I literally ate what everyone else didn't eat. It was SO good. That's how I found my love for them lol.

My in-laws are coming to visit. On Wednesday evening we might go down to the city to see them inflate the parade balloons, but Thursday we are definitely going down to see the parade.

We are planning:

Turkey
Mashed potatoes & gravy
Green bean casserole
A corn dish. Either re-heated corn from this summer or corn casserole

My MIL is probably going to bring one of her holiday salads

Ben is planning to do a pumpkin pie and a pecan pie.
