if you were all by yourself with your immediate family in another state and didn't have the money to go to your home state to be with family and friends, would you make a meal for yourself or go out to eat as a family?
It's not that I don't like to cook, nor that we don't like the traditional Thanksgiving dinner. We don't have any friends that can come over and "hang out" they all have family here. We usually play games and watch the game of course. However, I'm looking for something new. I love to cook, it's a big passion of mine. I just want to enjoy the day though... IDK...
I don't have any immediate family in our city or province and the extended family that does live within visiting distance always has other plans. So I always mae a feast for my little family and any company we might have. A couple times we've been able to make the trip to my parent's place (6 hrs from us) but I prefer to have Thanksgiving here and go to them for Christmas.
The times we haven't gone to my parents' house to have Thanksgiving with the family,we've made a meal for just the three of us at home.Turkey,mashed potatoes,dressing,pumpkin pie,Mmmmmm!So worth the time and mess....plus then we have leftovers to last several days so we end up not really cooking again through the weekend.
