Thanksgiving is coming up, what kind of dinner are you having? I'm eating at my sis-in-law's house, so I'm eating whatever she's making. LOL But we'll probably have the traditional turkey dinner. What about you? Will you have a traditional dinner or something out of the ordinary?

I was going to have it at my house. But now there are going to be over 150 people and counting. so my aunt is offering to use her house, which I am very happy about. Now all I have to bring is Green beans and Collard greens.

I'm really not sure what I will be doing for Thanksgiving. My family is spread so far apart. I'll probably just cook a small dinner for myself and the kids.

My country doesn’t celebrate Thanksgiving, but I was in the U.S. last year for thanksgiving. We had turkey, and some sort of healthy food. My aunt, who I was visiting is into health food. We had eggnog too. I like the eggnog.

This year we'll be at my husband's grandmother's house. The dinner will be more traditionally American than I ever had as a child. Growing up we had turkey, dressing, etc, but we also had some Lebanese dishes passed down from my mother's side of the family, and I miss them when I eat with my husband's family. Another interesting observation about my husband's family holidays in contrast with what I grew up with. My grandmother had the best dressing that she made totally from scratch and we've all learned how to make it since she passed away a few years ago. We usually just bought any dessert we were going to have, though. At my husband's family's celebrations, they use Stove Top stuffing (eek!) and make all of the desserts from scratch. It was an interesting contrast for me, but since I will be having my granny's dressing regardless, and I have a huge sweet tooth, it all works out fine!

It sounds like you will be having an awesome Thanksgiving. It is amazing how many dofferent Thanksgiving traditions there are that have been passed down through the generations. But they just make it that much more special. :)

About three to four different turkey dinners by the time that I get down bouncing around from one family get together to the next. I hope someone will at least pick to have ham this year so it gets changed up a little.
