  • I am visualizing handing the pleasure off to one of my older daughters...her getting up early to stuff the turkey, peel the potatoes, boil the eggs, bake the pies, make the sweet potato souffle, the greenbean casserole, passing on the secret of how to get her gravy to brown up - adding coffee! - and last, but far from least, leaving when it is time to clean up! Ha, thanks for the opportunity to will not happen in my lifetime! Happy Turkey Day, you all!

  • I'm visualizing all my baking. I make apple pie from scratch and I also make the world's best banana bread (mmmmmm!) This year I am thinking about making a snowball cake, too. I got the recipe in an email the other day and it looks really good.

  • I am excited about it! We are having Turkey and Ham, only because I got the Ham at an amazing deal. Dressing, Cranberry sauce, moms homemade wheat rolls, mac and cheese, green bean casserole, brussel sprouts, deviled eggs, and sweet potato casserole. And for dessert I am making apple pie and cookies that look like turkeys. Yum...I am hungry just thinking about it. I also love leftovers from the holidays, I could eat on it for a week! I love that our families come to our home!

  • Yes, my plate will have a bit of turkey, mashed potatoes, sausage stuffing, sweet potato casserole, green bean casserole and corn pudding on it, most of which will be drizzled with fabulous gravy and right in the center will be a little pile of pearl onions in cream sauce which will ooze into the rest and make everything that much more delicious. Oh and of course a plop of cranberry sauce. This is my absolute favorite meal and I will eat the same plate for lunch and dinner on Friday and again on Saturday =)

  • We are having a veggie roast, yams, some sort of wild rice cakes, jello mold and a yet to be determined dessert. I know that DH and I will spend the day in the kitchen works our a$$es off for the usual suspects who will leave about 15 minutes after eating. I'm a little bitter this year. I enjoyed it much more last year when we took the kids to the mountains, skiing and hiking, and had roasted salmon, green beans and each had an individual dessert from the store.
