I made Thanksgiving for everyone my children, sisters, BIL's, nieces nephews, Aunts and my mother every year for a very long time. Now I go to my daughter's house and share Thanksgiving with my kids and grandkids. Things changed after my Aunt Mary died. Everyone seemed to go their own ways. So now I don't cook! for either Thanksgiving or Christmas or New Years. I do make a turkey between Thanksgiving and Christmas because I miss the left overs. DH doesn't eat turkey so I get the smallest bird I can find. I make him ham. It is for the two of us. I make the works and I doubt there is a thing I would make differently or exclude. Mash potatoes, gravy, Turkey, ham, green bean casserole, cranberries, sweet potatoes. greens, sweet corn, baked dinner rolls, pumpkin pie, and pecan pie. I have enough left overs to last for a very long time and I even make turkey soup and bone broth so nothing is wasted from the bird.
