What are you doing?

I'm throwing my pernil (pork roast) in the oven at about 6 in the morning to cook low and slow until we have to leave about 1 p.m. Then,we're going to travel up north and have a crappy dinner there, come home warm up my pork roast, green bean casserole, sweet potatoes, arroz con gandules (yellow rice with pigeon peas) and empanadas that I made today.

We are cooking to have my mom over around 1-smoking a turkey and all the traditional sides and dessert will be an apple spice cake, then going to see my dad in the nursing home for awhile and then heading to my in laws-his aunts house about 45 min away for an Italian thanksgiving feast...then back to my mother in laws for dessert and drinks (for everyone else-I am 8 months pregnant)

Going to my parents house, they are making turkey, but having everyone bring something in a crock pot so we can all eat at our leasure.

It different, but we are all going and just hanging out. Should be a blast. My DH and kids are taking their drones, so they can fly them around the property.

I’m hosting my parents, sons & wives & 3 grandkids. We’re doing the traditional turkey, sides, and snacks. I love snacks!

We are going to MIL's to eat her delicious food and drink. My family is celebrating today. I can't wait to eat. I'm hungry and in need of wine!

DH and I are cooking a traditional thanksgiving dinner for our family of 5.

Gonna go to my grandparents for a little bit. Not really in the mood to be out. They (the rest of the family, not my grandparents) are always late and I'm not up to being out until 11pm.

DH wants to go to Target. We'll see. Maybe we'll go online.

I'm hoping that his mother/brother don't call or text him trying to guilt trip him into going to his mother's house. (Almost 2 decades in and she's never acknowledged us on any given holiday, never acknolwedged the kids birthdays, nothing. She is a toxic person.) But now she's lonely and reaching. That ship has sailed. I hope she has plans that doesn't involve pissing me off.

I bought donuts that look like turkeys for breakfast. I'll get up about 4:30... Clean, get dressed, most my foods are prepped already. Have my coffee. We'll have donuts and egg nog, then I'll start my appetizers and sweets for snacking on. The parade pre-show will be on then the parade. I start cooking and put my turkey in by 9 am (it's 19 lbs) to eat by 1 ... Then we graze all day, desserts and all. watch football, play football, have a few drinks, then watch the free-form premiers of the kids Christmas movies. Then eventually bed. Lol

We don't live near any family or friends. So its just me and my husband and our 2 kids. I am prepping all the sides today so that tomorrow all I will have to do is throw them in oven. We will get up early to put turkey in oven. Otherwise its a pretty relaxing day. We will just be relaxing and hanging out all day. Will probably eat late afternoon. Watch some movies.
