    I don’t think I’m cooking this year. I may just take it easy. It’s always just me and Mel anyway. And he’d rather have pizza!

    I am doing a small dinner for 8 with my best friend Marian. She is cooking ham, I am cooking turkey. We are eating Wed evening. I plan on setting a nice table with candles etc. I am very Thankful for family and friends. Our son is leaving home 2 weeks after Thanksgiving for 2 years, so it will be a celebration / farewell party! ♥ Blessings to you Regina 🙂

    Traditional T-giving with Southern recipes this year: Turkey with orange glaze and savory sausage dressing, potato salad, green beans, corn, mac & cheese, a roast, sweet potato pie, and a fabulous pound cake (recipe by Warren Brown – CakeLove).The girls and their hubbies will come over, we'll send over goodie plates to our senior relatives and friends. I'll watch football, snooze, and listen to old-school R&B. My wife and daughters will watch a DVD or Movie On-Demand. We will give thanks. Then some light-hearted laughter and talk about the goings on in the community and at church.That's our holiday routine. You just substitute Bar-b-que & grilling or passing out and opening gifts as the variable for other holidays.

    Regina this will be the first Thanksgiving away from home for hubby and me and I am not feeling it.I have always cooked the traditional southern dinner: Collars Greens, Turnips,Fresh Peas ,Butter Beans, Corn, Mac& cheese ,Turkey & Dressing, Bake Ham, Banana pudding, Red Velvet Cake and Potatoes Salad. We have about 30 people over. Watch football then I put my Christmas decoration up. I don't want to think about not being at home. But I am thankful for life in general.

    @RL – Invite still stands!@ Amy -Wow! I read on your blog about your son’s mission trip, I did not know it was for 2 years! Blessings to him as he walks in his calling! Enjoy your farewell/Thanksgiving dinner party!@ Rev – Your holiday sounds like my house too! Uh, who is doing all the cooking?? Blessings!@ Mike what you got going on with that turkey and who is making it? @0 pounds is a lot of Turkey, I can rent you some kids if you need it! Blessings!@ Melanie – SLACKER!! Just kidding! Enjoy! I’ll look for the pictures!@ Common Mom – Hubby does all the cooking??? Jeez, What a blessing! But then again it is probably payment for having the inlaws over for the entire week! Enjoy!@ Sharon – My family splits the meal also (I am stuck with the bulk of it since it is at my house)! So no thanksgiving in the wilderness uh? That would have been different! Blessings!@ Kin’shar – Girl, I am all shopped out! My freezer is full! We will have a great time. The same to you! Blessings!@ JJ – I know change is hard, and being away from family is hard too. I’ll be without my middle daughter but like you said I am Thankful for life in general and JESUS is still Lord! Blessings!

    I have a small gathering and most are vegetarians so I make a Tofurkey tofu turkey. Unusual but it works.

    who’s doing the cooking….They only allow me outside on the grill. So that would be wife cooking with daughters as sous chef washing dishes and receiving some of that Titus 2 input that you earlier blogged about.

    For one thing I am grateful that i finally found you again!You dropped in on me a couple of weeks ago and I have been searching for you ever since.As for thanksgiving here at my house. All of our kids are grown and live far away.So for the last few years we usually go out to a nice buffet.This year I may even be by myself so that my hubby can can get off the road and be home for Christmas.I use to really miss the big family dinners at thanksgiving. But, now I have gotten use to our new routine and let me tell you it’s not so bad.I might fix a few of our favorite things to have around for snacking. But it’s really nice to just enjoy a relaxing quiet day with no dirty dishes!!Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family Regina.God Bless you and yours!!:-)))

    I haven’t even gotten out to the grocery store as of yet so I’ll be out in the crowd this weekend shopping. I’m just cooking for my family of 5 plus my parents are coming over other than then we normally have one or two other guest pop out which is fine because we always have plenty to go around when we cook. My mom is doing the cakes and pies I’m not to big on baking. Turkey with cornbread dressing, ham with brown sugar and pineapple glaze, collard greens, yams, baked mac N cheese and chicken spaghetti will surely be a part of our feast.p.s I have an award for you on my random day.

    Thanksgiving is not the same without candied yams. Yummy!One year I baked a turkey breast and all I heard was how my husband felt cheated. So, it’s the traditional bird in our house. I’m so thankful to God for my family and our health!Gobble! Gobble! Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours. God bless!
