    Family doesn't care for turkey so I have been making prime rib for years with garlic mashed potatoes and cranberry sauce.

    I cook several turkeys on the grill, they turn out so moist. I also make cornbread souffle, Rosemary potatoes, stuffing, sweet potatoes, some kind of veggie dish, and several kinds of pies.

    This year it will be Whole Foods doing all my cooking. I just have to pick it up and heat it.

    In years past, I did traditional dinners until my brother moved to Florida. He and I love fresh fish so the first year here we grilled grouper. I think I also had scallops, salad, and key lime pie. We did something similar until his wife started coming down earlier. Now we're back to traditional turkey.

    If my brothers adult kids or adult grandkids come, I also have something vegetarian and a ham, too. They all have huge appetites and are runners.

    The only main course and sides I stack on my plate are turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes, corn, garlic rolls, and lots of gravy. Oh, don’t forget the pumpkin pie! I usually hit up the local diner just to get a turkey dinner with all the fixings throughout the year cause it’s my favorite meal!

    Does anyone have a special adult beverage they make for thanksgiving? I’m thinking I’m doing apple cider mimosas for the morning. And maybe a sangria for the rest of the day.

    Sort of . . . we always make a citrus punch recipe from the 1940s, but substitute the bourbon with apple cider.
