    Re: Day Before Thanksgiving Thread

    1. I haven't had to host yet and have no kids to take back and forth........maybe once we have our house and kids I'd prefer to host.
    2. From the MIL side, sweet potatoes, from my side, mom's clover-leaf rolls. Green bean casserole is a runner-up at both.
    3. None, MIL's apple crisp FTW.

    Re: Day Before Thanksgiving Thread

    1. Hosting is worse unless you're travelling a long distance.
    2. Mashed Potatoes
    3. Pumpkin, any answer other than pumpkin and you might as well just dig up a pilgrim and slap him/her in the face.

    Now pumpkin is not the best pie, that'd be crazy, but it is the best Thanksgiving pie.

    2. Yes
    3. Yes - forced to choose, my wife makes this pumpkin dessert with pecans and whipped cream (baked in a cake pan). Heavenly.

    Re: Day Before Thanksgiving Thread

    Traveling with kids VS Hosting with kids might be an even tie for worst.

    I always look forward to rice broccoli casserole and sweet potatoes.

    Pumpkin or Eggnog if I can get it.

    Re: Day Before Thanksgiving Thread

    I would prefer hosting, especially if everyone brings something. My wife disagrees.
    Favorite food can't be limited to one: Stuffing, green bean casserole, and turkey.
    Pumpkin pie or french silk pie.

    Pumpkin is disgusting. I could care less of the Pilgrims ate it, it's awful. Everyone knows the best part of it is Cool Whip.

    I would argue that warm Pumpkin Pie is disgusting. Cold pumpkin is yummy

    We were going to host my parents and sister but with my grandfathers death we came back to CR.

    My priorities in thanksgiving are as follows

    Food
    Football
    Family
    Relax

    Past that I don't care what you do but I don't want to sit there and discuss politics with you so back off.
