    We've starting the grocery list for our visit to Publix tomorrow morning. The standard Thanksgiving fare will be served at Chez Bistro Bijoux Panhandle.



    My condolences, otterpop.

    No. Just some parts wake up faster than others.

    Bummer otterpop, sorry to hear that. My thoughts and prayers are with you.

    I will be heading to up to northern california (Sacramento) to have thanksgiving with my folks this year. We will be having the traditional Salvadereno turkey for dinner. Turkey soo juicy you can't find this stuff in the states.

    Day after thanksgiving? Why Panes con Pavo...

    Sorry to hear about your loss, otterpop. I lost my Grandpa the day before Thanksgiving a few years ago. It's rough.

    I spent Thanksgiving this year in London. I toured Hampton Court, then went out for some of the best Indian food I've ever had. I may have to do this again next year! And maybe even plan on it being an annual event!

    Glad That Is Over

    I really enjoy Thanksgiving. That said.....

    ......I really enjoy the day after Thanksgiving. Not in a hurry to do anything, prepare any foods, arrange everything "just right", yadda. The calm after the storm.

    We had a nice Thanksgiving. Food was great (naturally, I am the cook!), guests were great, deserts were plentiful, drinks were super.

    Unusual Thanksgiving for the ofos family. I spent the day in Texas with my son, daughter-in-law, and grandson-to-be at their home for a traditional 3f day (family, food, and football). At the same time, the lovely Mrs. ofos was in California where she is tending to her mother's last days but was also able to spend Thanksgiving with her brothers as a family for the first time in years and also probably for the last time.

    RT and I spent the day with my shelter residents. I cooked a full on turkey dinner just like I would at home but for 30 men with big appetites. They thoroughly enjoyed the dinner and the best part is that I didn't have to do the dishes The second best part is that my office is significantly more organized thanks to RT's efforts.

    We came, we eat, we watched football, we conversed, we left - twice! One at in-laws and the other at aunt&uncle's. Leftovers during the weeeknd as well. We watched the movie Book of Eli too, but alas no Alice's Restaurant.

    sorry to hear otterpop - prayers are with you.

    Went to Toledo and Perrysburg. Also went to Lake St. Mary's for the wife's Thanksgiving. That area is sad right now, as the lake is very polluted. No boats or swimming in the lake. What's thanksgiving without going out on the boat in 35 degree weather? Ugh.

    We had a nice Thanksgiving with the new baby. We went to my parents' house for appetizers and the first half of the Lions game and then to my wife's parents' house for dinner, dessert, and the second half of the Lions game. The food was great. The Lions not so much!

    We were worried about how Thanksgiving would go with a 14-week-old baby but as soon as we walked into either of those houses, there were enough willing volunteers that my wife and I didn't have to hold, feed, or change our daughter ourselves all day long. I was definitely thankful for having full use of two arms and hands for an entire afternoon and evening!

    I discovered that bringing a baby to dinner also counts as bringing a dish apparently and we were not required to bring anything to dinner other than her. I wonder if that deal will still be in effect for Thanksgiving 2011?

    Let me tell you, the Vegas strip isn't quite the same when you are walking it with your mom and sister.
