Friend Makin Monday - Thanksgiving Edition


I saw this on another friend's blog and just loved the idea ... join in on the fun by heading over to Amber's Blog.

1. Turkey or Ham?
Both, a 15 pound fresh turkey - brined then roasted and a 15 pound ham from the Honey Baked Ham Store.
2. Favorite side dish. Has to be my Company Potatoes Dish, bascially dressed up mashed potatoes baked in a large casserole dish in the oven. My family loves the toppings - cheddar cheese, scallions and french fried onions.
3. Favorite dessert. Toss up between Paula Deen's Pumpkin Cake and Pecan Pie.
4. Black Friday: Are you going or not? Absolutely going, this year my husband is joining in on the fun! So thankful for our friend Jen who will be at our home before 5AM so we can head out bright and early.
5. If so, what's on the top of your list? Blu Ray Player, iPod Shuffle, Flip Camera
6. Going out of town or staying close to home? At home.
7. Hosting or helping? Hosting ... ten in all.
8. Name one family tradition at Thanksgiving. Watching the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade while preparing dinner. Talking about the things we are thankful for over the last year during our Thanksgiving Meal.
9. What do you do after dinner? Look through all the Black Friday Ads and make a game plan for the next day.
10. What are you most thankful for this year? My husband and kids and our dear friends, who are like family.
