    We don't have Thanksgiving in the UK, so nothing special on the menu for us!  Oh, and who does all the cooking - me, of course.  Husband does know where the kitchen is, but rarely makes any extended visits to it!

    cooking is done by everyone, me mostly my boyfriend who is amazing cook and maybe some pie action by my kids. It will be turkey, stuffing with raisins , some funky salad we come up with, shredded sweet potatoes, home made rolls and yes PIE, pumpkin and apple at least

    Turkey, ham, the usual stuff. But every year my mom makes me a special holiday Mac n cheese that I seriously look forward to all year. My grandma, my uncle, and my mom usually do all the cooking.

    Green bean casserole is always always a must! as well as Sweet potatoes and Ham . My grandma my mom and my sister usually do the main dishes, but each family brings a dish to share. I make the Green bean casserole big_smile

    The menu does not matter, it will be me, who does the cooking, and then the dishes.............

    My offspring, have made it clear..........they have better things to do, and more important people to be with.........

    They steal the joy.

    Spoiled little somebodies!

    When it comes to feastive dining in our home, I am the chef, and I will be preparing a three course dinner of soup, Turkey with all the trimmings and a dessert. Being a wise cook I clean up after myself as I use things so that after dinner there are few dishes that need washing cuz the pots and pans etc. are already washed and put away.

    well this year in my family this question is up in the air. I have mixed feelings when it come to thanksgiving. dont think of me as a bad person for what im about to say its just the way i feel. I feel that thanksgiving is a day of giving thanks and being thankful and it should be shared with the ones you are thankful to have in your life. with that being said it created a little bit of an issue in my slightly disfunctional family. we are not a close family on my fathers side meaning no one talks really during the year or calls to say hello and see how things are going but months before they check to see who will be doing all the buying and cooking and i just have grown tired of this now i have my own family...but whats on the menu usually is turkey, dressing, candid yams, green beans, mixed greens, ham, brocolli casserole, and potato salad, and some pies. one person usually does all the cooking and hosting at their house and this year they are all looking at me to host and im going to have to decline because i just want peace this year...i will however be visiting my mothers side of the family who can handle themselves more according and at least we all talk during the year......the cleanup after these huge celebrations is not a one man job

    Always turkey with "traditional" cornbread and sage stuffing. Dessert is always sweet potato pie. I'm not sure what the other fixings will be. This year my youngest daughter is hosting thanksgiving at her house for the first time. I'm looking forward to it.
