Not the menu but cannot stop thinking about the big day! Time with the family, the parade, the Cowboys game, games with the family and lots of Christmas shows and movies in the evening!

The next day, Black Friday, tons of Christmas activities going on including going to watch Santa Claus ice skate at the annual Christmas show at the mall!

No, it is a tad early to think about the Thanksgiving Day menu. That's the cat's job. All we do is say, "Turkey, turkey, turkey.", and his ears come to attention, he runs into the kitchen, and starts mewing instructions at us.

I have started thinking about it (mainly thanks to hearing about some of the recipes on here) but I haven't started actually planning yet. I'm not entirely sure if I'm going to be here or out of town with family.

Thanksgiving is one of my favorite holidays, and I am steeped in tradition. So, I don't have to think a lot. My menu is stored on my computer along with my grocery list and recipes.
