Of course, don't do this unless they can roast the bird as well as you can.

Normally I'd say that was an excellent idea, but this family I don't think would have anything I'd be interested in eating let alone Thanks Giving meal!!

We can be back in Cleveland in a couple of hours and deelady can be vindicated (not to mention we can be fed as well!).

Joseph the Creative

great idea!! but like I said above, I doubt they would have anything worth eating...not even worth 2 buck-chuck!!!

as far as people showing up last minute........it's ok but if you have 3 children and they're hungry do you eat your hosts out of house and home?????? No, you stop on the way over, get a pizza or burgers and eat them in the car........make them clean up after themselves.......if you really are good friends you get enough for everybody........and share.......then it doesn't hurt so much when the scarf down the candy bowl..........they'd better me glad that my gummi bears were not in that bowl.......I really don't share those guys with just anyone.........

And don't worry Auntie Expat if I ever drop by your home I'll be sure to step away from the gummy bears!!
