We do lunch with leftovers for dinner.
we had ours at lunch this year because that is when we could all get together. It was great, lots of good food and lots of great visiting!

We always have two separate thanksgiving meals, one at each of our grandmothers house! We eat around 11:30 at my grandmas and about 7:30 at my DHs grandmothers!

We do the same thing - lunch and then leftovers for dinner.

Is it time for dinner yet?

I can't wait until Thanksgiving...my favorite day of the year! We go to lunch at my wife's parents and eat about noon or so.

We host breakfast around 10 AM for family and friends and then we go to my in laws for dinner around 5 PM. I am not the best cook, I can bake really well but not cook, so I do easy breakfast and my father in law is an awesome cook so he and my boys make dinner. It is a great tradition and we look forward to it every year.

I have to get up early to eat breakfast (usually yogurt or something...don't want to fill myself up too much ) and take my meds. Then I'll have a small snack around 10-ish. We eat between 2-3 p.m.

Thanksgiving food sounds amazing to me right now!

I'm in total agreement with this statement. Hehe!

I have SUCH a craving for turkey, but I shall not give in to it until the Big Day.
