We are camping for Thanksgiving this year so we have already started planning. We've got to get everything bought and packed.

A month and a half. Before it hits a month in I do a test run. I don't want mistakes on the actual day and I also what dishes can be reheated and taste the same

I don't normally host Thanksgiving.  If I do happen to host it for my family, I ask them to bring sides or desserts but let them decide what.

Only once have I cooked the entire Thanksgiving meal myself.  I think I planned the menu earlier that week but probably did most of the cooking that morning.

I'm not cooking anything but a dessert but I have noticed 1 of my grocery stores was consistently out of 1 main ingredient so thankfully I found it elsewhere and bought it a couple weeks ago. This is a small town, the fight is on lol.

It depends on what I am cooking. I am only making a bread pudding for brunch at my moms. I have been checking out recipes for a while now.

For my in laws I bring pepperoni, cheese and crackers for when the family plays cards in the evenings.

 We just decided to have Thanksgiving at my brother, so I will try hard to plan something this year.
