That's the Italian way.

Hubs and I go to his Dad's for Thanksgiving. He gets up in the morning and goes hunting. I watch the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade and help the in-laws get things ready when needed. We eat, a lot. Hang out, nap, watch football, nap, etc. After dark we head to Sheetz for some hot chocolate and Lakemont Park's Lights on the Lake. We also drive around the shopping areas to see people camping/waiting outside for stupid black Friday sales.

We don't gather for Thanksgiving, but we do have a tradition. My parents cook a turkey (either on the day or near it, if they're traveling) and save about half of it in the freezer. At Christmas, when we're all together, we have turkey curry, which has always been our favorite leftover meal after Thanksgiving.

Almost forgot high school football, crosstown rivals.

That's the way I grew up too!! High School football in the morning, then all day feasting. We didn't have the appetizer course- just started with antipasto, then soup, then lasagna/pasta, then turkey, then dessert, then fruit & nuts & espresso.
And red wine mixed with cream soda (or 7-up) for dinner- even for the kids.

But seriously- most Sunday dinners were like that!!
Except we'd have roasted chicken or lamb instead of the turkey course.

Someday I will make a dinner like that again. But for now, my parents like to eat early and drive home before it gets too dark. So, we scale back.

You mean we're not the only ones who have curry at Christmas?

And neither are we! Do you think it's our Kentucky connection that gives us that in common. My grandfather's family is from Louisville.

My Momma still makes me a little ham . My favorite dessert of all time is Pumpkin Pie Crunch. It has pumpkin pie filling on the bottom with yellow cake mix, pecans and butter on the top. I don't even care for pumpkin normally, but this is my favorite dessert! Now I'm starving, lol.

Waaaay before it was trendy we fried turkeys here in cajun country, and so its still our tradition, along with shrimp and merliton dressing.

My mom's family all gathers at our house (her brother and his family) and we have the traditional turkey, mashed potatoes, sweet potato souffle, veggies, and biscuts. We have to have the biscuts because my cousins daughter will eat her turkey on top of the biscuts.

We then watch the Macy's parade. The guys watch football and the gals all sit around the table and look at the ads for Black Friday to see where we want to go shopping.

We don't live near our families, so we host a party for all our friends who also live far from their families. What started out as a handful of (mostly) guys has grown over the years as people got married & has kids -- now we're up to 35 people. Thank heavens for potluck! I make turkey, stuffing & cranberry sauce, and just enjoy the surprises of what everyone else brings.

Our tradition is to have it an entire month and a half early during a Sunday/Monday in early October. That's how we roll.

The Sunday before Thanksgiving, we host a party for all our friends from college. It started with four of us 20 years ago. Now we are about 40. It is about the only time we see each other.
