How many people are you having for Thanksgiving?

Do you do the cooking, or someone else, or does everyone bring a dish?

  • We're not having anyone over. We always drive to my hometown (which is 8 hours away from where we currently live) to eat Thanksgiving dinner with my grandma and my mom's side of the family. My grandma usually cooks for about 30 people. Sometimes people bring dishes, but it's usually mac&cheese, deviled eggs or some kind of cake or pie. My grandma is the only one who cooks the traditional turkey and stuffing.

  • I am not sure yet, probably around 15 or so, and I do the cooking.

  • Probably around 30 or so. I will make a couple meats, a couple appetizers, a couple main dishes, vegetables, potatoes and desserts and ask everyone to bring a dish of some kind.

  • None - we'll go to a couple different places, and have to bring sides to each place. Won't know what I have to bring til about a week before - and that's fine with me ;o).

  • We're having 30 - my mom is doing the turkey(s) and ham and everyone else pitches in and brings everything else.

  • None. I don't do Thanksgiving... My DH will most likely take my kids to his sister's house.

  • we will be staying home and I will be doing the cooking for myself and my 3 children, it will be a bittersweet Thanksgivings, because my husband will still be fighting the war in Afghanistan. By the time he gets home he will have missed all the kids birthdays, Thanksgiving, Christmas, both of our birthdays and our Anniverssary. But you can believe I stand behind in what does, it is a job he loves

  • I do all the cooking. I am cooking for about 20 people this year, which is actually a relief since the past 5 years I have cooked for 40+. I am going to make it super special for my DF. He will be deploying not long after the holiday season.
