I think I might go to to a restaurant or get a frozen turkey dinner.

I will be home alone and eat whatever I like, probably to include shrimp and ice cream.

I have family to visit so I usually eat traditional dinner. But if I weren't doing that I sure as heck wouldn't confine myself to turkey. Unless I was in the mood. Turkey barbecue sounds pretty good to be honest.

we started something new...with the parents and family getting older and larger … to go out to eat at a buffet ….with all the trimmings and desserts..

then go to a family members home for a gathering..
this alleviated the host being stressed out cooking the whole meal.....how many are actually coming... . and food allergies.... and picking up which we all helped...
we show up....eat and leave....still get to visit at the gathering after the meal

also allows the men-folk to go hunting in the morning …

and brother pays the bill....

Waiting to see if we get invited anywhere. If nobody steps up, I guess Iím having it.

Did the buffet thing a couple years ago. I thought it was fine (probably because I didnít have to cook) but others in our group werenít happy.

It is not my year to cook. Iíve tried to convince DH that it might be fun to just eat pizza and watch football, not that I care a fig for football games, but I havenít gotten through to him. He likes eating turkey, I think. It is not as if he hasnít eaten turkey for the previous 75 previous years.

We are still talking about this.

I donít know what we are going to do.

I donít want to cook, and I donít want to buy a prepared turkey dinner, either.

Weíve tried eating out for Thanksgiving, and the food has been overpriced and not particularly good.

If it were me I would compromise with something like pre-cooked roasted chicken, salsa, charro beans, rice, and some kind of cooked vegetable or else a salad. I never did like the traditional sides personally.

Boston Market will be keeping us right on Thanksgiving night. Followed by a few drinks and fireworks.

If I choose to cook, a roasted pork shoulder or high priced cut of fish with the fixings. We dont do the big family thing, its our night.
