The thing I like about our Thanksgiving is we have a bigger break between it and Christmas, so we get a chance to work off the extra pounds. Our Thanksgiving is always on a Monday mid-October.
I like the fact you guys have the Thursday (if you can have the Friday ) off...it is nice to have a longer weekend.
We do the turkey thing but the French-fried onions and green bean dish isn't as common, although some do it...Sometimes we have ham since we also eat turkey for Christmas.
At my house we buy a turkey roll since we have a smaller family. If we have guests, we buy a bigger roll. They are usually really good and there are a lot less leftovers (I'm okay with a day or 2, not a week) and clean up. I started buying them because I had a wonky oven and now we prefer them.
I usually served smashed potatoes, homemade stuffing, turnip and a green vegetable...sometimes a green salad. I make my own cranberry sauce...my MIL likes the canned cranberries but I don't...too much sugar. I like eating the rest of it on toast like jam, the next morning or two.
Hope you all had a good day yesterday!
