It's that time of year again! 

How much time do you get off for Thanksgiving?

Have you made your thanksgiving menu yet? 

Do you have a specialty dish you whip up every holiday season? 

Do share!

Cranberry scones are my big hit.

mmm, i've never made scones before, but i want to try. my husband's aunt made some last year on our beach trip and i watched her make them. she had a nifty scone pan and everything. i bet yours are delicious!

We get Thanksgiving Day and Thanksgiving Friday. DH and I are taking off Wednesday also and taking the kids to Florida to see SS in the Navy. So, no menu for us this year - we will be eating out.

we get thanksgiving day and friday off. 

i haven't figured out what i will be bringing, but i am not planning the meal itself. we are splitting the holiday between dinner at my mom's and my in-laws'. 

i usually make pumpkin cream pie. i tend towards bringing a dessert.

Except for the 19 hour drive, it will be fun :)

I will be off work Thursday, Friday, Saturday, and Sunday

 

 

 

MENU - Ham, Baked Mac & Cheese, Broccoli and Rice,  Potato Salad, Broccol cauliflower and cheese, Rolls, Mashed Potatoes, Green Beans, Green bean Casserole (because not everyone likes the casserole), Ranch Potato, Mac Salad,  deviled eggs, Corn, Dressing, Cranberry Sauce, Pea Salad, Sweet Potatoes, ... and lots of desserts.

 

 I make the Green Bean Casserole. Yes this seems like a lot of food but I have a HUGE family and we do a Pot LUck

No time off work.

I think we're going to skip it until the weekend since we both have to work. We were invited to my uncle's moms house so we'll probably head that way either Friday afternoon or Saturday morning.
