I thought it would be fun, since Thanksgiving is just next week (Ack!) to play the Either . . . Or game, holiday style!
Either Home for the Holidays . . . Or . . . Traveling to visit Family or for Fun?
Either . . . . In the Bird . . . Or . . . In a casserole dish?
Either . . . .Traditional Pie . . . Or . . . Cake or something different?
Either . . . Football . . . . Or . . . Movies?
What are your Thanksgiving traditions? I'll start us off with my answers.
Travel--For the past 10 years or so, we've stayed home for Thanksgiving. I cook dinner and my sister helps out with sides. I admit I'm ready to try something new. Family is too far for a short visit, but I'd love to go out one year or, like my neighbors do every year--plan a fun and adventurous vacation.
Turkey--I usually roast the turkey. We don't have a fryer…I've never even tried the fried kind. One year, though, we were in the midst of a home improvement project and I put a turkey breast in the crockpot. It turned out great--so tender!
Stuffing--None of my boys eat it, so I usually just make a small dish on the side for my sister and me. Of course, it has to be homemade and similar to my Grandma's recipe!
Dessert--Valiant Husband loves apple pie. Eldest loves pumpkin. Youngest doesn't eat either, so I sometimes end up making cookies or something for him too.
After Dinner--Neither of the above. Valiant Husband will watch a bit of football, but the rest of us usually sit around in a turkey coma, play games and start our Christmas lists.
Now, your turn!
