Is anybody thinking about Thanksgiving yet?

My mom and I have the whole meal planned out already.

  • Well every year it's the same meal plan, just different places, and people. So not really. Last year we had it at my Grandma's house so I didn't have to do anything but show up. However this year I'm hosting it, but I've hosted it before and it will be the same meal.... If anyone wants to bring anything extra they're more than welcome to do so.

    I'll be making Turkey
    Greenbean Casserole
    stuffing
    an assortment of pies
    banana pudding
    Mashed potatoes
    Sweet dinner rolls
    Chili Beans
    I was debating making a small ham too...

  • Yep, I called the other day to see about ordering our organic, free-range turkey :) It will probably be just us for Thanksgiving, and we only have one refrigerator, so we won't be going overboard.

  • Yes, I am lol. I am so excited for the holidays! I'm trying to figure out who we will be inviting for Thanksgiving dinner, if anyone. Normally we have a big dinner with our friends since DH is military and we live 3000 miles from our families, but a lot of our friends have moved so it looks like it will just be us and 1 or 2 other families. Which is fine by me lol. I will still cook all the foods I love to cook. I love spending all of Thanksgiving morning cooking, and then relax with friends over a good homecooked meal in the evening.

  • My family has done Thanksgiving lunch at noon since I was a baby, so I just have to find out what to bring and where we're going. Very organized, which is nice! As for my in laws, nothing is ever organized. I've tried for 12 years to help get every thing together and figure out who's bringing what. No one ever remembers or shows up on time, or brings what they say they will. They always want to bring bread or some random dessert they bought. So hopefully this year we can do our own thing and have a PEACEFUL Thanksgiving!

  • Yes, because my MIL cannot physically do it anymore so the family is sharing the responsibility and figuring out who will bring what.
