    Hi there Susan....My favorite dish to prepare is whatever the "Hostess" asks me to bring along...while she slaves in the kitchen all day preparing the big feast!!   I closed up my kitchen & sold my dining room furniture!  Done....The yellow tape is across my door.....Do Not enter....Cook RETIRED....Oven spit-shined and wrapped in plastic seal.....Lady of the House open to any and all invitations, thank you.  Will bring dish to share, but make it E-Z. 
    I will clear the table and scrape the dishes.  Also, will bring my own empty containers for take-home left-overs.
    After 50 years of slicing, mixing, chopping, stuffing, cooking cleaning and entertaining a huge family, umpteen Holidays and Special Occasions per year.....I burned my apron in effigy as I chugged a bottle of champagne.
    NO, I have no guilt. I am now a PRO at being a dinner "guest."   What time is Thanksgiving dinner at your house this year?  See U. Love, Paula

    Well I go to my sisters for the last 14 years and my brother in law and I do all the cooking. Two Turkeys one in the oven and one on the grill and Ham are the main item, we also make mashed potato, gravy, devil eggs, corn, green beans, biscuits, apple pie, pumpkin pie, and I'm sure I'm forgetting some stuff, oh yea stuffing. LOL
    We make everything for the whole family, then we eat way to much and "watch football" aka nap.

    I acutally am not a huge fan of turkey so I'd have to say the mashed potatoes, salad and green bean casserole.

    We don't celebrate Thanksgiving... however, if we did, I'd like the traditional sunday lunch idea since turkey has to be cooked in a certain way for my liking.

    I'm a from-scratch cook. Thanksgiving dinner just isn't complete without homemade giblet gravy. Or cornmeal stuffing, for that matter. It usually takes me two days to get Thanksgiving dinner on the table. Between the gravy, stuffing, mashed potatoes, sweet potatoes, pumpkin and pecan pies, it's an ordeal, but oh-so worth it!

    Besides the pies, I like making the veggie platter that way I have something to eat if we are invited somewhere.  Most don't make special items for vegetarians.  This way they don't feel bad.

    Whether you make turkey, chicken, or spare ribs, it isn't Thanksgiving unless there is cranberry sauce.

    There are so many! My favorites to cook from scratch would have to be roasted chicken, homemade stuffing and antipasto. My favorites that my mom made from scratch has to be homemade escarole soup (some know it by the name Italian Wedding soup). The best!
