Well since we go to my parents on Thanksgiving day, my mom does most of the cooking. But I’m the baker in the family. So today I’m finishing putting up my Christmas decorations and baking for the family. I’m making two types of scones, pumpkin bars with cream cheese frosting, and cranberry orange oatmeal cookies. Once that’s done it will be time to pack, load up the car with FI and off to my parents house. Then Saturday we are doing it all again with his family! His sister works the holiday (nurse) so she’s hosting us all on Saturday.

@Nona99:  Christmas music is a must so first thing I do is set it up (only for the prep time) turkey goes in the oven and I get everything else going; mash; baked man and cheese, you get the idea. While everything is cooking I put on Willy Wonka and me and FI watch that while taking turns on checking on the food. Super relaxing 🙂

@Nona99:  Buy a pie, bring it to my parents’ house, and watch TV.

Normally it was too much booze on Wednesday night.  Sleep in, eat, nap, watch basketball and Friends thanksgiving marathon, drink some more that night.  I was hungover on Thanksgiving every year in college!  Not always pleasant though Smile

I’ll wake up, pop my broccoli cheese rice cassarole into the oven, we’ll drive 10 mins to my parents and watch some TV til we’re ready to eat! Maybe we’ll take some champagne and OJ for mimosas…that sounds like an idea!

@Nona99:  Yeah, like previews of dance numbers from different musicals and things. I do love the floats, though. If you don’t like the dancing and you’re not driving or cooking I recommend more than one mimosa to watch, haha. I only started watching it after I moved out of my parents 3 years ago so I don’t have anything to compare it to!
