same as last year...reservations.
just 4 of this year so all the more reason, dinner at a nice restaurant and we all can get what we want, no cleanup, and just enjoy each other's company. tis all good.
i always bring baked brie with dried cherries, brown sugar and slivered almonds (wrapped in pastry dough) to holiday parties. for thanksgiving, i cut out a turkey with the extra dough and place it on top. people laugh at me.
tons and tons of cookies (chocolate chip of course)! and zucchini bread. I want to learn how to make creme brulee. I had this wonderful chocolate brulee in Victoria BC and since then I've been fascinated with the desert.
I'm cooking dinner with all the fixins.... dessert is up to my family.

I dump a bottle of red wine (cab) over the turkey and baste the hell out of it for a few hours. In the pan is also onions and garlics. Awesome.

I don't do much cooking, but I really want to try to make a Vegan Pumpkin Pie.
Maybe some stuffing too. Stuffing is easy, even without the bird.
Hubby and I will probably also try to find a good bar to go hang with people avoiding their families. That doesn't involve making anything, except perhaps some change for tips.
All of the basics and I am going to make a pumpkin mousse & gingerbread trifle instead of a pumpkin pie. I am also making mini goat cheese & pancetta tarts for one of my appetizers...as usual, there will be too much food!
Going over to my cousin's house for turkey day. I'm making a Apple pie.
I'm making the trip out to Long Island.
I am making the trip to middlefield.....if my brother ever decides to call me...:(
I would prefer to just stay home, though a free meal is always good. Well, except my sister in law isn't the best cook. I always offer to help, but she won't let me.
So I will be having wine.
I am really embarassed that I may seem ungrateful..it being Thanksgiving and all, but it's true.
I lied....I actually am making something. I make a Polish potato pie with kielbasa that I break out before dinner so everyone can fill up.
It is really good.
