    I’m a traditional Thanksgiving gal. We have a 20+ pound turkey, stuffed and roasted. Mashed Potatoes. Homemade Gravy. Cranberry sauce. Peas and corn. Minced pie and Apple pie and Pumpkin pie with homemade ice cream for dessert.

    Then we sleep for hours, 10 pounds heavier but happy as can be! LOL

    I think Thanksgiving Day is fun… It is one tradition that I keep. We sometimes do the turkey at home or go over to a relatives and cooperate with a dessert or something. It is nice to be able to share and get to see relatives this way… Anyway, it is also the day that marks the beginning of the Christmas Season, which is also fun…

    Stuffed pork chops sound good.

    Well…I would usually celebrate thanksgiving with my family, but they all live far…or more like I live far they all still live in the same country. Last year I had dinner with my ex-roommate and her kids, it was ok, didn’t feel like thanksgiving. This year, since I happen to be living again in the same state I used to years ago, I have decided to drive to the city I lived in and see my best friends that i’ve known since high school that we still keep in touch…all the time. It’ll be thanksgiving with people I consider family.

    Everyone comes to our house. We have a huge feast that includs turkey & honey baked ham. I love it when people walk into the house an hour before dinner & there is the raw turkey sitting on the counter. They always freak out & ask “what time is dinner????”
    We deep fry the turkey on Thanksgiving so it doesn’t take that long to cook. I just love watching everyone’s reaction!!!!

    Thanksgiving is big in our house. We prefer to do the cooking at our house with turkey (one roasted and one smoked), ham (for those who don’t like turkey) and all the fixings. It’s fun when everything turns out right.

    My family and I take turns having it at each others house, this way we don’t expect one person to do all the cooking alone. We all bring a dish to the dinner, or sometimes one of us brings the pies and whip cream, the other might bring a good wine to celebrate. its always fun no matter what. Then we talk about past family dinners and how much they mean to us.

    I just go to my mom’s. It just me and my kids and my mom and her fiancee and my sister and her husband.

    our family goes to hunting camp . we bring stuff all ready cooked and mainly warn it up . we have propane so we can boil potatoes and ect. We use coolers. no electricity. so at night 17 of us play cards and board games .We have propane lighting, three bedrooms. wood stove, We sit the table with goards, pumpkins, for decoration. It is a great time no television, the men go out and hunt, kids slide down hill if we have enough snow. It is back to the basics once a year and everyone loves it.

    Well couple years ago I figured out that we really all like white meat so starting buying two turkey breast to roast. Everyone comes here so we can have 4-20 people through the course of the day. Some of the kids go to other in-laws but they always stop by our house too.

    Turkey
    Mash Potatoes
    Gravy
    Sweet Potatoes
    Green Bean Casserole
    Stuffing
    Corn Casserole
    Cranberries
    Yeast Rolls
    Pumpkin Pie

    I have most of the stuff done the night before so there is very little work and my husband is wonderful about helping out. We watch TV – play games – play with the kids – meet new people – my one daughter seems to always bring new people home that did not have a place to go – and be thankful.

    My son is at boot camp this thanksgiving – first thanksgiving without him – Bless and thank you to all the men and women that serve the US. and your families that miss you.

    I am actually eloping to get married on Thanksgiving. We are so excited! We have been together for 4 years and some HS years a long time ago. A long time coming! Tennesse here we come!

    But when we are home we have Lasagna it is our family favorite with pumpkin pie or apple pie for desert.
