We will be going to my oldest son's in-law's house. They always have a big dinner and they invite all sorts of people (relatives, friends, their priest, neighbors, etc.). They make the turkey and stuffing, and others bring the sides. I think I will make rolls to take this year. After dinner we all go outside and shoot some skeet. Of course my favorite part is that my grandkids are going to be there! :D

That sounds like a wonderful day Chopper!

My oldest son and his wife will be hosting again this year, but he wants me to bring the dressing, gravy, cranberry sauce, vegetable and rolls. So much for a "no cooking" Thanksgiving. He butters me up by saying I'm his favorite cook. I must say that he always does the best turkey I've ever eaten on his Webber charcoal barbeque! I don't have to prepare (or clean up) the house for a crowd, and we can leave when we want, so it's all good.

Have a wonderful Thanksgiving everyone!

We're going to my in-laws in Costa Mesa, about 65 miles from where we live. We're in charge of bringing the wine so we're taking 6 bottles of wine from TJ's.

We will be having 13 in our home for Thanksgiving dinner & they will all be spending the night as well as they are driving 4 hours to get here. It will be crowded with all the air matteresses throughout the house, but fun. We are making: Turkey, Ham, msh./gravy, grandma is bringing her infamous stuffing, green bean casserole, sweet potatoes, corn from the garden last summer (frozen) , cinnamon/applesauce salad & homemade honey wheat bread with butter. For dessert all the traditional homemade pies: Pumpkin, Pecan & Ruhbarb custard with heavy cream, whipped. I figure I will stay busy enough to not have much time to eat alot, I'm hoping anyway.

My DH and I will be going to a friend's house for Thanksgiving dinner. There will be 20 of us, I believe. They have been hosting this dinner for several years. They prepare the turkey, a ham and the dressing, the rest of us bring appetizers, sides, and desserts. This year, I am making a corn pudding and a mince pie.

My kids are coming for a traditional dinner. Turkey, stuffing and gravy, pilaf, cranberry sauce, asparagus and squash. Pecan pie, pumpkin roll, my daughters' favorite Armenian cookies, ice cream and maybe lemon meringue pie (if I feel up to it).
