Mrslovebug:  Aw that’s sweet of you! The holidays can be tough alone when you’re not used to it! FI’s parents divorced about two years ago and the holidays were tough on them too.

I suggest green bean casserole! What says Thanksgiving more than that? 😛 I love the idea of a ham and a pie…and maybe cookies that he can have for a while after you’re gone.

Is it your child that’ll be there? Maybe you can bring some crafts, construction paper or something, and he can make a turkey for Grandpa to hang on the fridge?

ETA: Also, if he’s a drinker, bring some warm spiked cider! It’s more *seasonal* than Thanksgiving.

Ask your DH what dishes are traditionally made and avoid those!! Start a new tradition with him. and make some fun quirky dishes like a braided pizza bread or lasagna. Food can bring back lots of memories so in these trying times it’s sometimes better to make new ones. GL!
