Forgot to mention that this Thanksgiving my two sons are going to cook the dinner here at our house since I won't be able to put the turkey in and out of the oven, etc. after my knee surgery.  They are good cooks; especially my younger son.  When he made M&M cookies several years ago, I told him how good they were and he told me that he learned from the best---ME!  That made me feel so good.

I will be hosting Thanksgiving here. Lani will be helping during the week cause I will be working at the convention center all that week. But I did manage to get Wednesday & Thursday off. So I will be really really busy. 
I decided to add a few new things to the menu and decided to take a few off but all the main stuff will be on the table.

Forover 50 years;I've made the whole traditional meal & enjoyed reruns for weeks;afterwards.This  year,( since it's only the two of us) hubby strongly suggests I take it easy(I've been sick fr a few weeks & am only now recovering.He wants frozen dinners or Chinese takeout, onThe Thursday..For reruns; I'll make a"hotel" turkey ( chest  ) no legs just my fave part. Ill also bske a"crustless"  lowfat( egg substitute& evap nonfat milk)  sugar freee  pumpkin pie;  (lowcarb ,low sodium stuffing  in a caserole; known as "dressing" inNew England.I already have thecubes of lowcarb bread,cut & dried & r.t.g.
Cool( low sugar ) cranberry  sauce in a mold.Doing it his way;I won't have the job of having everything ready at the same time;I can make each item when I feel up to it, since the frozen meals wlli lbe zapped in the microwave oven, by him  & served by him, when we are both  hungry.I suggested eating out at the hotel's banquet hall; "only" $20+ pp but he's concerned that it might be cold & rainy & I'll get chliled or overtired.If we can find a place that serves really good food like we used to do (the first year after I became disabled) ; we'll go there; NO!!!  "institutional food"   for  hubby.Yell

The family gets together at mom's house for dinner - turkey, dressing, mashed potatoes and anything else your mind could think of.  Everyone brings a dish to pass.  After we eat we rest, play games and enjoy dessert!!  A day to be thankful for God's blessings.

jULIE;
It seems like  your family knows h ow to spend a holiday...Ourfamilies  hve been split up & allo ver ht ecountry since we were young children.Nowourownkidsareontheothersideoftecountry.I stil (  til this year) made all the traditional dishes for just us two.This yearhubby drew the line  & we are going out to eat at the  hote'Thanksgiving anquet.
In past years our lder neighbors & friends,l did that.I nvited tem to our house but they preferred feasting at the hotel.
We were invited to join them but declined in favor of eating at home w/lefovers for  weeks..
I will make all the traditionl foods over that next weekend & we will enjoy leftovers just like every other year.One year our younger ion (then  in the navy )could not make it in time for the actual day.He came up later in the year & we allate "reeruns"  & made believe itwas Thanksgiving day .When  my husband was overseas in the1970's we did that each year.Whenever he was able to come home; we had  our Thanksgiving dinner.No one had to ask what we were greatful for; it was obvious( we were together once again as a family)MyMENU is:
roast turkey
stuffing or dressing
 gravy
 butercup squashpure
whole green beans( plain steamed)
OR acorn squash halves filledw/sweet peas & pearl onions
beverage choice(s)
pumpkin pie
 )notveryoriginlbutit'swhatwe like.Smile
n Response to CURIOUS!!!!! WHAT DO YOU DO FOR THANKSGIVING?:
I ALWAYS MAKE DINNER, MORE LIKE LUNCH, WE EAT AT NOON. WE MAKE ALL SORTS OF DISHES,SIDES, DESSERTS. EVERYONE HAS THERE FAVORITE. I LOVE CARROTS AND TURNIPS MASHED WITH BUTTER/ SALT PEPPER AND MASHED SWEET POATOES WITH A PRALINE TOPPING, YUMMY...THEN WE ALL GO TO MOM'S FOR DESSERT. SHE FEEDS THE BROTHERS THAT HAVE NO PLACE TO GO OR THEY ARE TO LAZY TO COOK FOR THEMSELVES. WE GET THERE BETWEEN 2-3, STAY UNTIL 5, HAED TO INLAWS TO EAT OR NOT EAT.WE ALSO PULL NAMES FOR SECRET SANTA AT MOM'S AND IN LAWS.  BUSY DAY. WE START WEEKS AHEAD OF TIME, MAKE PIES, FREEZE, MAKING DOUGHS. IT IS EASIER. SO WHAT ARE YOUR PLANS? YOUR TRADITIONS? YOUR FAVORITE DISH?
