While we are all busy preparing for the big feast and for family and friends to gather, a fun tag just might be fun. It's almost Thanksgiving so we had better all tag a lot of people before the holiday comes and goes. I am tagging:

Thanksgiving Meme

1. Which do you like better: hosting Thanksgiving at your home, or going elsewhere?
I like hosting holidays in my home especially right now. Our girls are all getting to the age where they want to help so the kitchen becomes a busy place!

2. Do you buy a fresh or frozen turkey? Organic? Free-range?
I prefer fresh if they are not too expensive or small.

3. Do you make stuffing or dressing? What kind?
Dressing… bread

4. Sweet potato pie or Pumpkin pie?
Neither… we do Dutch Apple sometimes but most often cream pies or cheesecake!

5. Are leftovers a blessing or a curse?
Isn’t that why we have Thanksgiving- for the leftovers????

6. What side dishes are a must-have in your family?
Mashed potatoes (made with heavy cream and cream cheese), broccoli casserole (Craig’s mom’s recipe), rutabaga (like my Grandma and Mom make them), southern green beans (Kaitlyn’s recipe), relish tray (Kelsea creates every year), dressing (I’m teaching Haley this year), rolls (Lexi’s job), collard greens, and corn casserole

A bigger kitchen and a double oven!!!!

Yes, whatever they ask and if they don’t have a preference, usually it is a double broccoli casserole.

My family (they are so far away)
