Because THAT is what Thanksgiving is all about. Not about family, or thanking G for the harvest, or any of that. It is about being thankful that there is a big ol' table with so much food on it you HAVE to eat some so there is room to put MORE on it. Try everything. And if you think you didn't like something, eat some more and get a second opinion about how it tastes. You never know...this could be the last meal you ever eat with some of these people, so eat like you mean it!!!

I remember the big meal at my grandparent's house when I was young. Nice memories. Lots of good food. Gram made this killer relish that I loved. Among other things.Home made biscuits, etc.

My mom always made a huge dinner on Thanksgiving. One year my brother came down with is 8 children and mom made 3 turkeys. She had more food than some restaurants.

I will eat what looks good to me. I will pass on what doesn't. Luckily my family cooks some really good food. Being Italian or living with Italians long enough will do that to you.

We're not going anywhere for Thanksgiving today and I'm not cooking, so I think it'll be mac and cheese for me.

I fried eggs for breakfast, that'll be the extent of my 'cooking'. I'll mosey on down to Bryan and Sherri's later (sister and brother-in-law) for the family thingamabob, but I'm taking packaged dinner rolls for that, let everyone else cook.

@JolietJake To look at the bright side at least you can fry an egg. I only know scrambled eggs! I did make a special chocolate chip cookie i changed the recipe and asked my kitty cat what to call them, and he decided on "Onyx's surprise chips" they were edible! My family liked them! i was shocked as i never baked cookies before!
