Default Qotd: How do you prepare for Thanksgiving? (11/13)

Thanksgiving is nearly here. How do you prepare for Thanksgiving it? Do you make a grocery list? Do you search the internet for recipes or do you have a family recipe?

I've hosted for the last 13 years... I pretty much have it down to a science. haha. We have pretty much the same things every year... I'll make a shopping list... and can get everything pre-made in about 4 hours on the day before. My hubby always takes care of the turkey. My mom will take care of the desserts because I hate baking.

Our house is too small to host my family so it's usually at my mom's or sister's. We have certain things that always get made & then my sister, mom, and I decide what else we're bringing before we 'assign' the rest of the dishes to the rest of the family. This year I'm making broccoli-cheese casserole.

This year my daughter (and my sister -- she's a teacher at the same school) have the Wednesday before off of school so there's not quite so much rushing around this time as there has been in previous years. I would volunteer to come over early to help my sister but having to bring my rambunctious 3yo with me kinda cancels out any help I could offer.

Supposedly my sister's not-boyfriend boyfriend is coming & it will be the first time any of us are meeting him so it will be a more exciting Thanksgiving than any in recent memory.

Lots of laundry, packing, and then a 6 or 8 hour drive depending which family member is hosting. Most of my family is in Connecticut and New York; we're the outliers who have to travel. Thanksgiving is the holiday my extended family all gets together for.

I make a list of what dishes we want and a shopping list from that. We are hosting this year for the first time in quite a few years and I do ALL of the cooking. This year I am keeping is low key and simple and not overdoing it as I usually like to do. We are having Ham, turkey, dressing and a few sides and desserts and that's it. For the past 3-5 years we have went to Cracker Barrel for Thanksgiving Dinner with family but I wanted a home cooked Thanksgiving this year!

I'm making a list today and going to the store tomorrow! My dad will handle the turkey and my grammy will bring a pie or two. Other then that, I'm doing everything since my sister has a newborn this year.

It's just the three of us (2 adults and 1 picky eater) so it was a bit hard for me to list down what to cook, also especially now that my husband and I are counting our callories So I've started checking on my "healthy recipe book" for decent food we could eat. Well anyway, it's holiday so maybe we could do the cheat day
