For the past 6 years or so we've been going to my sister's for Thanksgiving but, my kids insist I make a full turkey dinner at home the next day. My husband and son alwys make the stuffing together. It is a "recipe" that my husband used to make with his grandfather.My son already told his wife of 3 months that he will be making the stuffing with his son when they have children and if they don't have a son- there will be no Pop's stuffing after this generation :).Happy Thanksgiving all!!Love and energy, Vicki
PS this thanksgiving we will be spliting our time - appetizer's first at my sis' and then dinner at my son's in-laws- somehow it all seems very strange.

Just think of it as establishing a new tradition. Everyone needs to regroup every once in a while. At least you had some traditions already in place. Go for it. You've expanded your family. Happy Thanksgiving!

One year we went out, but even then we orderd turkey. I love turkey. Make it few times during year. I especially love turkey meat ball soup. I saw it on Iron chef, but did not know what they did with it, so I had to improvise.

At the club I work at, we do "to go" dinners for some of the members, that want a full dinner at home, but don't want to cook it themselves. We have 3 different types of the main course, be it Turkey, Ham, or Roast Beef.

Personally, I'm a turkey person, although if a slice of ham makes it onto my plate, I'll enjoy that as well.
