Default What did you have for Thanksgiving?

For the first time in a number of years we were not with family at Thanksgiving.

The family was out of town, and we didn't want to fix a big meal for just two of us.

So, we went out to eat, at Cracker Barrel. Had the traditional turkey dinner, was very good. And you can get fried okra.

So, did anyone do anything somewhat different or have a unique family tradition?

First time in several years that I have not cooked Thanksgiving dinner flor several ham friends at the home of one of them. This year I just made a normal Thursday of it.

My kids were home.

The turkey was bought pre-smoked. Everything else was made here. Pretty routine stuff at least for us. Macaroni and Cheese, broccoli/cauliflower casserole, new this year is creamed spinach.

Had a right mellow old time, my son and his lovely wife stayed in the camper. They are becoming fond of its coziness and privacy.

Joined with one of my Doctors who puts on a Community "Dinner" (11a to 1pm) Deep Fried Turkey with all the fixings.. it is a "Free" meal.. though they accept donations.

Wile eating I got to thinking about how much of that meal I paid for.. One of the helpers was the Camp Host from here in the RV park (her daughter works for the Doctor) and I told her.. Would have been cheeper to take her to the most expensive restaurant in town.

But hey.... Would not have been as enjoyable doing that.


Then, Wed, (last) I delivered a Christmas gift to someone.. I told her once I liked bringing light into her life (right after I installed a new light in her kitchen, the old one being toast)... Well this was one of those Tactical Flaslights. Like the Atomic beam but this one is only 800 Lumens, not 1200 like the "Beam". Smaller, easier to carry but I never use my 1200 on full power anyway. Even thopugh it was clearly a Christmas gift (Instead of a bow I glued a mini (like 1") Christmas tree to it so it would be "under the tree") she opened it early.. She likes it,, What can I say.
