As for me, I will spend it with family like I do every year where we will have Turkey, Dressing, Rolls, Ham, Chocolate pies (something like 10-11 of them), Yams, Mashed Potatoes, Gravy, Deviled Eggs, German Chocolate Cake, Pineapple Cake, and of course Pepsi and a few other things. This year will be a little different for me though. I'm very thankful that Natasha has come into my life after contacting me with the possiblity of being her father. She was thinking about heading to Michigan with the people she's been staying with so those people can spend Thanksgiving with their relatives. She's re-thinking that and I invited her to spend Thanksgiving with me and all my family. We're expecting maybe roughly 25-30 people this year, a little more than our yearly average of relatives and friends. I invite anyone to share their plans for this Thanksgiving here on my blog so people can read them.

My parents are going to Michigan to spend the holiday with family, because I have to work the day before and the day after, so i'll be staying home with my little doggie. My best friend and I are going to cook here at my house for us and her parents(my house is the biggest of the three). She brought this idea up to me today, and I think it's a great one. I don't really mind being along on the holiday, however being with friends that are like family is a much better plan!

First of all congrats Straddle on this being an especially meaningful Thanksgiving for you. Plans? Sleep away the day maybe ... lol. Catch up on some reading. Last year I roasted a turkey for the first time; this year I'm thinking maybe just buy one from the local supermarket. We'll see.

I will be going to my Brother in laws house in San Francisco and helping prepare the Thanksgiving Dinner which will consist of all the traditional American Thanksgiving cuisine as well as a few German dishes. We plan to eat early as we like to snack on the left overs well into the evening. Watch some football upstairs while others watch the parade downstairs. Drink beer,wine and I will also bartend and serve mixed drinks and spiked cider. We as American Families have much to be thankful for including having dedicated individuals serving our country overseas. Thier sacrifices are what enable us to be able to enjoy the holidays with our families with a sense of security. I hope every one remembers them this Thanksgiving and appreciates the sacrifices they make for us. May they be blessed by whichever entity they worship. For me, I say God Bless them and all of you that enjoy the freedom they afford us. Happy Thanks giving to you all.

I'm happy for you. I do not enjoy this holiday, but I hope everyone else has a great day!

This year I'll be going to my best friend's house. Last year she was in Iraq. Her house is typically where I spend the holidays as I don;'t live near family. I always know what I am bringing to our feasts and it's no different this year. I make a Mexican Sweet White Bread, creamed corn (from scratch), mashed potatoes (with my super special artery-clogging ingredients) and pumpkin pie. These are the dishes I always bring on Thanksgiving, Christmas and Easter. I think it's just me & my daughter, my friend, her hub, 3 of their 4 boys and her parents. We'll probably play dominoes after the dishes are done, maybe some cards (tradition!). Then we'll sit and plan our strategy for our early Friday foray to the fabric store (another tradition!). Should be a nice relaxing day.

Looking forward to the apple/orange/cranberry relish, sweet potato fluff and pecan pie! If we had only these 3 items, I'd call the meal complete!

Well, since we don't celebrate Thanksgiving in South Africa, I will most probably do nothing, but I truly can't wait to share OUR first Thanksgiving in 2007 when married to my sweetheart.

Hope you all have a great time, wherever you are.

Thanksgiving to me is an opportuntity to get my kids and grandkids together for a day. With everyone grown (or growing up) and having lives and familes of their own, we try to take this day to spend time together as a family. Only one of us places any significant religous value on this (or any other) holiday, so for me it's all seeing my kids. Okay...and it's also about the cooking...I love to cook big meals! Turkey, oven-roasted then simmered in a crockpot to juicy perfection, homemade gravy (yeah, folks, w/o lumps!), corn, cream cheesy garlic mashed potatoes (a family favorite), dinner rolls and cornbread, a nice tossed salad...and lots and lots of appetizers. My kids can EAT! Oh, and can't forget the Dr. Pepper and Orange Sunkist - on the rocks, please!

However, this year, my son and daughter-in-law are hosting TG at their house. Her first turkey dinner (gulp!). Wish me luck!!!
