My father-in-law's cornbread dressing. Not necessarily my Father-in-law, but definitely his dressing!

Mashed potatoes and gravy, the avocado-pomegranate green salad I posted about, and getting together with my relatives. My husband is looking forward to it being over.

Two friends and I will share a schmancy buffet at a nice restaurant. I look forward to having both salmon and turkey as a main course. My favorite Thanksgiving things are stuffing, cranberries, gravy and mashed potatoes. You can keep the sweet potatoes and pumpkin pie.

Not having to go to work.

All of the delicious food is merely a bonus.

1. Having my whole family gather together at my house this year.

2. Great food, but especially scalloped oysters and stuffing.

3. Gateway to Christmas.

Me too, and a bit of mayo.

I actually like the leftovers the next day the best. All the goodness, none of the work.

Last year we traveled and ate other peoples' food. This year we're hosting a big Thanksgiving dinner with all the fixin's here for about ten people - eight family members plus my husband and myself.

My daughter and I like to have a little theme going though we want traditional food. This year we decided on a "Midcentury Modern" theme. So we're throwing in a few "midcentury" side dishes - for instance, green bean casserole (which her husband loves), Watergate salad (which my husband loves) and I just ordered a vintage Jello mold from eBay and I'm going to make a cranberry/cherry fancy schmancy Jello thingie! Yay! I also just put together a great playlist of songs from that era - Henry Mancini, Herb Alpert and the Tijuana Brass, Frankie Valley, Ella Fitzgerald, Ray Charles, you name it - I even found some 1960s TV show themes - Bewitched, I Dream of Jeannie, and Hawaii 5-0 among others. WOOHOOOO!!! We have some vintage aprons and we'll wear them too! I am going to print off and frame that Norman Rockwell painting of Thanksgiving dinner and put it somewhere in the kitchen or dining room.
