How Do You Like To Spend Thanksgiving


I was just sitting here today thinking back on Thanksgivings of yester-year and wondering how others like to celebrate.  Over the years we’ve gone over the river and through the woods to Grandmother’s house, we’ve stayed at home and last year we went to my sister-in-laws home.  This year we are going to celebrate Thanksgiving at my daughter’s place – this should prove to be interesting.  We’re still trying to decide who’s cooking what and we like to go to the High School football game too!  I’m excited though, she lives in Phila with her boyfriend Chris and they have a really cute apartment, not to mention room for us to all sit at a table together rather than having to do the buffet thing and sit at TV Trays in the living room (we don’t have a dining room and our kitchen is small too)

Let me know how you like to celebrate your Thanksgiving.  Do you like to visit family and friends and let them do the cooking, or do you like to stay home and have everyone come visit you.  Or perhaps you like to go out and eat!

However you spend your day, I pray that God blesses you abundantly and above all you could ask for and may the peace that only He can bring be with you and your loved ones.

  1. Hey Retro, thanks for sharing your tip on soaking the bird – I’m gonna try it this year – I also hear that soaking cheesecloth in wine and covering the turkey with it until the last hour gives the turkey a gorgeous color and flavor. Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family – man, you’re gonna have some awesome leftover before thursday even gets here….

  2. This year my wife decided to have a dry run thanksgiving day to test out her recipes. We soaked the bird in a brine solution she got at William Sonoma it really kept it moist. OMG, the turkey was so good and I get to do it again in a few days!

  3. Hi Doris, part of me loves the thought of someone else doing the cooking, while the other misses all the wonderful smells that float through the house. There is also the part about all the great leftovers, but on the other hand, my feet don’t miss standing over the stove all day.

    The bottom line is being able to spend it with those you love and hold dear, so I guess we’re both winners when you get right down to it.

    Take care and God bless,

  5. Hi Brig,
    Guess I’ll be following your lead and going to my daughter,Denise’s,in Gibbstown. She has a large dining room and loves to cook. Good thing since I quit cooking years ago after my girls grew up and left
    home. Denise is a wonderful cook. Love her stuffing with black olives & nuts plus her string bean casse-role with crunchy onions on top. Everything is so good
    we all love it. Hope everybody enjoys their Thansgiving Day.
    God Bless,
