Do you do the Thanksgiving cooking or do you go to a family members?

I do not do the cooking my mother and grandmother do all the cooking. The only holiday meal I do is Christmas Eve. I am super thankful this year that someone else is doing it and I do not have gag my way through prepping all that food

My mom and I do the cooking. Right now, I'm having trouble even planning the menu! Not looking forward to it!

I do the cooking. I am so excited but not sure i will have the energy to pull it all off and be cheerful at the same time. May need to nap in between cooking items, lol

I host and do some of the cooking. Our Thanksgiving is kind of potluck. We have a lot of family coming and they each bring a dish or two. My dad and I do probably most of it.

I do the baking, my parents do the cooking! I do a couple side dishes sometimes, for DH, but mostly just bake the pies!

We live far from our families, so I do all the cooking. It has been that way long enough that I'm pretty good at it. I save my recipes and even the shopping list from year to year and just have to see if I want to try any substitutions or additions.

I do most of the cooking, DH does some as well. It's just the two of us, since we're still living in exile, so we do the whole thing, just in smaller portions

Thank you *Kiliki* for the beautiful siggy

I usually do all the cooking. We usually are far from family so it's just us and whoever we invite. I don't mind, though. I found a way to make a turkey so tender it literally falls apart in your hands, even the breast meat! And everyone else always cooks tough birds.

We go to my inlaws. Mil makes the dinner with a lot of help from SAMs and publix. I bring dessert. This year I am making cheesecake and a pumpkin pie.
