I know our Canadian CruiseMates, have already gobbled, but south of the border, it's almost Turkey Time! Hard to believe the year is almost gone.
What do you plan for the BIG dinner? Is the menu written in stone,or are you allowed to be creative once in a while? This dinner is connected to many memories, so some food MUST be on the menu, right? It's a law!
So share some tips,some recipes,some memories please.
Trip, with her book & tea!

I won't be able to take my dad to the in laws this year becuse it would be too much for him. He and I will settle for leftovers. My niece and her hubby are coming down two days later and I'm fixing a roast.
As you said Trip, our Thanksgiving is already passed, and since my mom passed 6 yrs ago, Thanksgiving has not been the big celebration it used to be. My sister and I managed a small family dinner for a couple of years, then since I moved, it's been a non-event. No family, no friends the first year, but this year we were invited to friends' and had a wonderful time.
A couple years back, we were cruising at the time of Canadian Thanksgiving, and we delighted in celebrating with a room-service champagne breakfast on our balcony!
Since I am alone I am planning my celebration on a smaller scale. Rather than a turkey and all the trimmings I will cook a pork loin with stuffing. Squash, peas and roasted potato. I will probably have some forbidden desert too.

I have accepted an invitation to my cardioloist and friend for Thanksgiving. It made me feel good that the kids were so excited when I said "yes." It will be traditional but I figured I'd add to the leftovers with a Honey Baked ham.
