Cornbread-Don't eat cornbread...ewww
Gravy-Homemade
Pumpkin Pie-Never had pumpkin pie...I grew up on Sweet Potato Pie...just as good though.

Stuffing-Stove Top...and I like to add in celery, bacon, and onions-yum.
Cranberries-Canned-jellied
Yams-Canned-I don't think I have ever tried fresh yams before.
Cornbread-I am not good at making this, but like it, especially with butter, and honey.
Gravy-Either, during Thanksgiving I make both homemade, and packaged gravy.
Pumpkin Pie-Store bought, do not care for homemade.


Fresh or Frozen Turkey? Either

Stuffing - Stove Top, with stuff I add, carnberries, onions, & bacon, YUMMY!!!

Cranberries- depends on the time, I have used can but I SOOO love the homemade, everyone seems to not like the chucks I love them but no seeds!!!

Yams-Homemade, has to be!!!

Cornbread-We do not make cornbread on TD, we sometimes have homemade rolls but not every year.

Gravy-homemade gravy.

Pumpkin Pie-homemade, sort of, I maek the crust and I use the Libby can pumpkin and add my own spices, I do not sue the pumpkin pie filling though, just the plain pumpkin.

Fresh or Frozen Turkey? Either, we vary each year, we are thinking of going fresh this time.

I usually use canned yams. I buy the raw cranberries and make the whole cranberry sauce as ever since I started doing that my family loves it. We make bread stuffing and also the gravy. I also use canned pumpkin although one year I made it with a pumpkin and the pie turned out kind of lumpy...it tasted good though!

Stuffing- I like Stovetop and usually make that throughout the year but for Thanksgiving and Christmas my Grandma makes the best homemade stuffing!
Cranberries- canned
Yams- My Grandma makes homemade but I dont like Yams
Cornbread- Box if its made but normally we will have brown and serve rolls yum yum!
Gravy- Homemade or canned.. I personally like the homemade but my Mom usually buys the canned
Pumpkin Pie- I like just about any kind of Pumpkin Pie!


Fresh or Frozen Turkey? My parents usually buy fresh but it doesnt really matter, I like both
