Will you cook from scratch or box?

 I have never made anything for Thanksgiving from a box.  My family would probably revolt if I were to try.  My daughter said something about stove top stuffing the other night and I thought my husband was going to have a coronary.

I will start cooking and doing all the prep I can this weekend.

Scratch for me.  It's potluck at my cousin's, and we discuss what everyone's bringing.  My assignment: deviled eggs and something sweet potato.  I decided to bake the potatoes, cut them in half, scoop out the flesh, and do a "twice-baked" thing.  Mostly brown sugar, butter, spices.  But I plan to do a slightly more "savory" thing with a couple of them.  I'm thinking mascarpone cheese, since it's slightly sweet.  Any other thoughts?

Lucky you!!!!  We did that one year since it was just my parents, the df, and yds.  Oh, man.  It was glorious.  At a country inn, waitstaff in tuxes, and exquisite food.  Just the right amount.  No cooking, NO CLEANING!  I. LOVED. IT.
