So we'll do a quick survey.

1. Where are you dining for Thanksgiving this year?

2. Are you in charge of any particular dish? If so, what?

3. What is your FAVORITE food on Thanksgiving?

4. What is your LEAST favorite food on Thanksgiving?

5. Do you watch the parades? How do you feel about them?

6. Do you eat left-overs?

7. Name 3 things you're thankful for. In no particular order. TRICK is, you can't say "Family, Pets or Children." (They're a given.)

    6. Leftover turkey sandwiches are the bomb! Again why oh why do you make me eat so much of you?

    2. Brie with crackers, Turkey, stuffing, gravy, sweet potato casserole, mashed potatoes, drinks and something else that I can't remember right now...

    3. Green bean casserole!

    4. I don't really have anything that I don't care for... I guess the stuffing... if anything.

    5. Love me some parades but they always get bumped with the boys come over... :(

    6. YES! If we are lucky enough to have left overs we always split them up and eat them - for sure!

    7. I'm thankful for:
    a. Weight Watchers.
    b. My job and my husbands job!
    c. that everyone in my family is healthy and doing really well this year! Last year my mom was going in for her last chemo treatment on Nov. 29th and wasn't completely herself last Thanksgiving!

  12. 1. We will be dining at my parents early afternoon and T's family early evening. We always split both holidays in two... makes everyone happy.
    2. I am not in charge of anything, but I always make a three-layer coconut cake - absolutely delicious!!
    3. Mom's potato casserole and stuffing
    4. Green bean casserole & black olives
    5. If I am up early enough to watch them - sure... they were better when I was a kid. It started the holidays off right. Hot chocolate and parades... always great!
    6. Yes I do... I love re-heating the things I love.
    7. BOOKS - they help me escape even when time and money don't allow that luxury, CARPOOLING - it preserves my friendship - helps the environment some - and saves money spent on gas & DREAMS & GOALS - they keep motivation alive, interest peaked, and I continue to challenge myself to meet my goals and make my dreams come true.

    As a side note... I am truly grateful for my friends, family, dogs and health as well... and I am grateful to know you!!!!

  14. Thank ya'll for commenting!

    It's so fun to hear what people LOVE and what they don't love so much...

    I think the consensus that the stuffing IN the bird is somewhat scary.
