We go to my uncles house up on this beautiful mountain in morganton, nc. My whole family comes and we have a huge buffet there. I'm a little bummed about Thanksgiving this year because I don't know how to manage it with my dietary restrictions.....:-(

I turn on the Macy's parade and watch it while I prep the turkey. And then I cry when Santa shows up at the end. I don't know why I cry, it may because I associate the Macy's Parade with "Miracle on 34th Street" but I do, I cry. Every Thanksgiving. Like clockwork.

My only tradition is no matter where we go for dinner, I'm in charge of making the party potatoes. I'm required to lol

I am dairy free and here is my plan.
The turkey and gravy is OK. I am taking a container of almond milk to mash my own potatoes and sweet potatoes. Veggies should be OK. I am making a dairy free pecan pie (and perhaps a pumpkin pie) for me. I have coconut milk butter to put on my rolls. The cranberry relish is OK as well. Not a perfect meal when you cannot sample everything - there will be lots on my plate though.

My hubby and I share the cooking on turkey day...but no matter what I have to make the stuffing because only I got my MILs secret cracker stuffing recipe before she passed and everyone loves it.
Also my whole family comes to my house. I somehow became the family matriarch after my grandmas died. So everyone comes here for all holidays.

It has been just us (DH, kids, and I) for Thanksgiving ever since we moved out of Oklahoma. So, I always do up the big, traditional dinner. I try to involve the kids with cooking as much as I can. During dinner I make everybody share what they've been thankful for from the last year. The kids think it is silly, and DH said they never did that in his family, but I thought it was a common practice? So, that's pretty much it... lots of food, lots of dishes to wash. Sometimes we watch a movie.

My tradition is to wait until the last minute to clean my house before everyone comes over.
