What are you doing?
cooking for myself and hubby and my oldest dd and her man and 2 kids will be spending it with us, I love Thanksgiving
We normally go to one of my aunts' houses. However, my uncle (her husband) died 2 weeks ago. So, one of my other aunts has offered to host. We always have our family Thanksgiving dinner on the Saturday after Thanksgiving because I have multiple family members who work at Universal Studios Hollywood (my uncle was one of them). They always offer to work on Thanksgiving so that some of their colleagues can spend the day with their families.
We always go to my parents house- DH and our 2 boys, my sister and their spouses/kids, and my grandma. Sometimes DH grandmother and mother come also- since his family doesn't really do anything.
My mom is making turkey again this year, I'm with my husband and all the kids, I know one of my brothers will be there, his twin is still living in the NE and I'm not sure if he's traveling yet.
We usually make another turkey the following week to go with the sides my mom makes for an army:)
We have it at our house every year. My husband cooks the turkey, mashed potatoes and yams. I make the stuffing, and green beans. My brother brings a sald and veggie, and my Mom brings potato salad, rolls and the pies! It's low key, we go outside so the kids can play, watch football and enjoy talking while we have the pie and possibly play bingo, depends on who's game!
We are having Turkey and fixings at our school this coming Tuesday, everyone is bringing a side or dessert.
Mom wants us at her house but it has already started with us mentioning grandmas stuffing was better and her fruit salad can't be replicated etc...
