My favorite part of Thanksgiving dinner is , of course, the TURKEY ~~~ and then the leftovers...LOL !! I could eat turkey every day in some sort of fashion.

As years go on, our Thanksgiving dinner remains the same except for where it is held and who is there.

Years ago, we would go to hubbys' sisters' in a very small house but filled to the brim with family, food and fun. We would go early in the morning to help prepare the food. Stay all day to see everyone coming and going and then play cards late into the evening.

Now, it is usually just hubby, daughter, grandson and myself here at our house. Sometimes we celebrate grandsons' birthday if it falls on Thanksgiving. (He was born the day after in 2001.)

This is the first year that daughter has had a real house (rather than small apartment) so I am thinking she will want several of the family there this year. She is soooo proud of her home ~~~ Smile

I DO wish our (USA) Thanksgiving were like the Canadians. Their Thanksgiving is the middle of October instead of the end of November as ours is. I would like the longer period of time between the holidays for more preparation.

Our menu consists (always) of:

Turkey

Small ham (hubby isn t fond of turkey)

Stuffing

Sweet potato casserole

Corn casserole

Cranberry salad (my second favorite holiday food)

Deviled eggs

Dinner rolls

Angel Food cake (hubbys' favorite)

Pumpkin pie (daughters' favorite)

Chocolate cupcakes w/Caramel icing (for grandson)

Coffee, Pepsi and Water for drinks

Whew, I m tired just thinking of all that cooking but it is sooooo well worth it in the end.

Happy Thanksgiving Wink

I used to cook just about all that. However, I can't anymore. I will be fixing a few desserts.

We have about the same menu for Christmas at my daughter's home. She has been doing it for 5 years.

I do roast the turkey and make the dressing/giblet gravy.

For dessert I make Red Velevet Cake and another dessert.

I am sorry you are still sick. Maybe you could eat some crackers and milk.

Hugs
