My DIL's mom is having our whole gang over, again. She's a saint. It's me, my ex, my son and her daughter, my other son and his girlfriend, 2 more grandmothers, her son and her husband .... and of course her. Plus our 18 mo granddaughter.

Since I moved south, I really feel badly that I can't help. Luckily she loves to cook as much as I do + she even looks like Martha Stewart.

Mr HB and his dad are going to Alabama to have T'day with his DIL, her husband, 2 grandboys, Mr HB's ex and her husband.

We are blessed that all of us Ex's get along very well.

I'm glad I waited to read the entire post before I pushed the panic button! I thougth for a minute something might have "happened" to Mr. HB and his father - I'm glad that you're getting away and that they'll have someplace to go.

I had Thanksgiving at my place last year. This year I'll be going to my Dad's side of the family for lunch at 1pm, and then my Mom's side at 5pm. By 7pm I should look like this...

I cook turkey all year round (I've had it 2 or 3 times since September), so I don't "require" multiday leftover feasts ala soups/pies/salads.

Don't even have to bring desserts Thursday. My kicthen will be clean and quiet.

I did pick up some beef shortribs to braise tomorrow afternoon though. Nice pre-Thanksgiving rev-up feast.

This year we are doing it at home, and the best part is the leftovers including the sandwiches, the potpies, and the soup.

But if we were going out, well, there are turkeys at our local supermarket for 37 cents a pound (you have to buy about $35 dollars in groceries to get the price but that is not very hard for us).

We would buy one and roast it just for the leftovers.
