Wednesday Poll: How do you Thanksgiving?


What's your role each Thanksgiving?  Do you cook the whole thing?  Order in?  Eat out?  Do you assign everyone a dish?  Do you do nothing except eat, watch football and scratch your balls?  

Everyone has a role, and mine is usually to take full control.  See that picture up there?  Don't I look happy and thankful?  Nope.  That smile is a manic one... a panicked, "everything-will-be-fine-if-I-show-teeth-like-Giada" shit-eating grin.  That's what happens to me when I try to do too much.  So this year, I've decided to do next to nothing and let someone else take over.  Teach me how to watch football please (I already know how to scratch my balls).

NOW TELL ME, what's your role in Turkey Day??

Got this thing to work !!! ??? Oh well ... I do the whole thing myself, smiling real big like you.. hoping everything will be good, or delicious... but I never worry about my Szechuan Turkey because it's always great !!

I have to cook the whole dinner by myself for the first, and hopefully only time. I'm in panic mode! Seriously considering having it catered. Any advice would be appreciated

The one good thing about having adult children move out of the house and far away from me, means that I get to be a "guest" for all Thanksgivings from now on. I choose great wines :)

Linda - I forgot about your Szechuan Turkey, I must try that some year!

Gretchen - I'm happy you're happy that us adult children are gone : )

Taylor - YOU CAN DO IT! My tips:

1. Do stuff the day before. As much as you can.
2. Make yourself a to-do list for the day of.
3. Don't be afraid to put people to work. Bossy.
4. Sip wine all, day, long.
