    fighting a mild panic here....i dont have a good springform pan for the cheesecake nor do i have sour cream....dinner is early due to one of the kids plans....so now i am feeling a wee bit of pressure but alas....i will think of that tomorrow


    so whats up at your place?

    we are going traditional....turkey, cranberry, taters, butternut squash, brussel sprouts, cornbread, i am not much for stuffing...lava cakes, pumpkin pie, cheesecake and magic bars .....maybe the lava cakes can go..

    Just the five of us unless my brother feels well enough to join us. The usual suspects will be at the table . . . turkey, stuffing, cranberries, mashed spuds, baked yams, peas, home made cornbread. Dessert . . . pumpkin pie and oreo parfait. We save the cheesecake for Christmas when there are more people to eat it. Otherwise . . . . oink, oink. lol

    Brunch at one house then dinner at another. Of course we have to drag food everywhere. I'd rather just have it at my house.

    My brother and his wife always have anywhere from 30 to 40 people at their house on Thanksgiving. He cooks a turkey, frys a turkey, makes a ham, has some sort of beef product. The wife makes a ton of sides, and of course everyone else brings something so there is a TON of food.

    I fill up on all the appetizers, by the time we all sit down I may have some mashed potatoes with some butter and some homemade bread. Then I pig out on the over 20 desserts.......mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm


    We watch football, the kids put on a talent show, play 'Chase the Ace', we draw our names for Christmas, tell funny stories.


    Good times, good times.

    We're running three places, also dragging food with us wherever we go. But I guess it's still better than cleaning up after everyone at my house.
