Thanksgiving Meme

Totally took this from Karen. =) Can you believe Thanksgiving is next week?!?!?! I personally love Thanksgiving. It is my favorite holiday. Some years are better then most but to have family all together and good food makes me very happy.

FYI- for those that do not know what a meme is, it is like those get to know someone emails that are always going around but in blog form

1.What are the traditional favorites?

Family getting together. When I was growing up it was at my grandparents house. Man Grandma could cook. Miss her very very much. Now we are usually at my in-laws and then have a second at my mothers for my side of the family. But this year my mom is coming here!

2.What new recipes will you try this year?

My MIL usually cooks and every year she tries something new, usually a side dish. I think it will either be a new green beans or brussel sprouts recipe. My kids like brussel sprouts, especially my son. He has freaked people out in the store because he asked if we could get some.

3.What part of the meal do you never compromise?

Well I love everything but sometimes the "experiment" dish bombs. I look at it this way though you never know if you will like something until you try it and that is how my kids are being brought up. That is probably why they like brussel sprouts.

4.Who gets to carve the turkey?

My FIL does it.

5.Family style around the table or buffet style and everyone sits wherever there's room?

What ever course we are eating is on the table. There is always so much food that we know have courses.

6.How many will be at your table this year?

We will have 7 or 8 not sure yet.

7.Three best pies for Thanksgiving dessert?

my grandmother's apple, pumpkin and my grandmother's apple

8.Cranberry sauce...yeah or nay?

Yeah!!! Either way canned or fresh though I lean toward fresh homemade

9.What time do you eat Thanksgiving dinner?

Usually between 2 and 3. We are not done until after 6 most of the time

10.Favorite leftover?

Mmmm all of them = )
