If you are going to celebrate Thanksgiving on Friday instead of Thursday ... what difference does it make what you eat on Thursday? That's kind of like - if you're going to celebrate Thanksgiving on Thursday, what should you want on Wednesday??? Or, I'm going to make meatloaf on Tuesday - what should I make on Monday??

Make whatever you want - and enjoy your celebration on whatever day you decide to do it.

sounds scrumdiddlyumptious! by all means, serve it up!


and as far as thanksgiving goes, it's about the spirit in which it's eaten, not what's on the table. the pilgrims served up turkey & squash because that's what they could get their hands on. i'm pretty certain that most of them would have prefered a more traditional (to them) roast goose.

thanks for all your ideas. i guess maybe i worded my first post wrong.

the true celebration for us will be thursday with just the kids and my husband. i come from a very large family and when a spec holiday arrives,
seems for some reason the true meaning of the holiday gets lost, maybe
because trying to get on a small gathering 50 or so together it gets crazy.

on the other hand my husband's side of the family celebrate everything
so celebrating an occasion is not such spec thing, it happens all the time.

this will be our 3rd thanksgiving with just us and the kids started asking in
oct can we celebrate thanksgiving just us again? i am very thankful
the enjoy just being with us, even though they are with us everyday.

makes me feel all warm and cosy inside, i guess for them too.

well we are still making up our minds of what we will be making.

normally each one of us picks a part of the meal they would like to
make. we are going to do that again.

sorta leaning towards pork

Make a special meal of all your family's favorites, and have that become the tradition!

During the year when I want to have the flavors and feeling of Thanksgiving, I have a pork chop recipe that utilizes a scaled down version of my stuffing recipe. It's great and I add cranberry sauce and a few of the sides I serve at Thanksgiving to "Thanksgiving" it up. I'll share the recipe if you wish.

Thanksgiving day menu

Both our boys ( 43 & 48) are over the road 18 wheeler truck drivers. I worry about them. (Ah! yes I digress), well anyway the only thing they want this year is my own home made from scratch
slippery Chicken Pot Pie. and my home made cole slaw.They both tell me that it is the eleventh commandant to have cole slaw with slippery pot pie.
