Chocolate, Chocolate, and Chocolate

From Sunday Stealing

1. What do you have for breakfast on Thanksgiving?

A. Probably an egg or oatmeal, which is what I generally have for breakfast.

2. Do you go to a Thanksgiving parade or watch one on TV?

A. I usually have the Macy's parade on while I am cooking.

3. Do you serve appetizers, lunch, or snacks during the day?

A. No. Our traditional Thanksgiving is not at my house; I just cook things and take them to my in-laws. 

4. What are the traditional favorites?

A. Turkey, ham, broccoli casserole, coconut pie, cranberry sauce. 

5. What new recipes will you try this year?

A. Probably none.

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

A. The turkey. 

Last year's turkey.
7. Who gets to carve the turkey?

A. Generally I cut it up and put it into a container to take to the in-laws. It is hard to haul around a big ol' cooked bird.

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

A. Around the table.

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

A. Seven.

10. Once you're at the table, do you say grace or a toast or does everyone go around and say what they're thankful for?

A. Sometimes there is grace, but most of the time everyone just digs in.

Last year's Thanksgiving meal.
11. Cranberry sauce… yay or nay?

A. It's okay. My husband really likes it.

12. What time do you eat Thanksgiving Dinner?

A. Around 6 p.m.

13. Three best pies for Thanksgiving dessert?

A. Chocolate, chocolate, and chocolate.  

14. Do you have dessert right after the main meal or later on?

A. Generally it is offered right after the main meal, but I usually decline it. 

15. Favorite leftover?

A. Turkey. I make turkey salad out of it; it's pretty good.


  1. One of my favorite things about Thanksgiving is making things with the leftover turkey--I usually make turkey salad too, and also turkey/wild rice/broccoli casserole.
    Enjoy your holiday!

  2. I HAVE to have turkey to make sandwiches for a couple of days. And other turkey dishes, but gotta have the sandwiches. So much so that I will make a turkey even if we go elsewhere for the meal.

    I am currently obsessed with steel cut oatmeal and make it about once a week.

  3. I will probably make a lot of leftovers this year, since we are having company I got a whole Turkey and not just the breast.

  4. I use to get excited about Thanksgiving before my parents passed. It's not that exciting now that I have to do all of the work and they are not there... Have a great Holiday!

  5. I like the sound of dessert at your Thanksgiving! :)

  6. I'm craving for Turkey right now
    Hope you can visit my Sunday Stealing

  7. The best thing about Thanksgiving dinner is the turkey and all the leftovers. Love your dessert pies, though we usually have pumpkin and banana cream.
