    Either make pizza dough or buy frozen pizza dough from the store and let thaw out. Roll out dough into rectangle shape, sprinkle garlic powder over dough, over dough with a layer of thinly sliced provolone cheese, a layer of thinly sliced pepperoni over provolone cheese, sprinkle layer of shredded mozzarella cheese. Repeat with layer of pepperoni and finally a layer of provolone. Start with one of the long sides, roll up into a log. Place on cookie sheet. Bake at 400 for 15 to minutes. Let sit for 10 minutes and then slice.

    Usually Thanksgiving is just me and my husband but my mom will be joining us this year since my father passed earlier this year. All of my Christmas trees (with the exception of the live tree) get put up first week of November so by Thanksgiving everything is decorated. We try to find a tree farm open the day before thanksgiving; sometimes we get lucky, sometimes we have to wait till Friday to get the live tree. Either way, it is the last tree to get decorated. Our dinner is usually fried turkey, mashed potatoes, stuffing, succotash, cranberry sauce, sweet potatoes, and rolls. Sometimes corn pudding and one year I made a maple bacon cornbread in a cast iron skillet that was so good; I may have to do that again! Pumpkin pie for dessert. We cook a lot because we like a lot of leftovers and we will also freeze what we don't eat for future meals. I always make a stock out of the turkey carcass and we usually have homemade turkey noodle soup that Sunday. I am not a Black Friday shopper but I will run out to a store Thursday evening if there is something I absolutely can't pass up. Otherwise, it is on-line shopping and watching football for us all day!

    Besides the prime rib, I'll make Kolackys, chocolate chip cookies, sugar cookies with royal icing and small individual pies - cherry and apple.

    We always have Hot Buttered Rum while we watch the parade. That's probably the tradition we are most committed to... ;)

    I do go out alone on Black Friday. I started doing it one year when I happened to wake up at 4 in the morning and couldn't get back to sleep. I find now that the shops open on Thanksgiving night, it's actually pretty calm between 5-7 on Black Friday. At least here, it seems like that time is mostly people like me who just want to hear the first Christmas carols in the mall, people wearing matching elf ears and Christmas tees, drinking their first sips of peppermint mocha of the season. Things start to get crazy as it gets light out, I get in my car, hit the drive thru Starbucks and bring mochas and cocoa back to my guys.

    Then we go get our tree. We always waited to get our live tree, afraid it would dry out. But then a couple of years ago my husband read in This Old House or somewhere that since the November trees are cut at the same time as the December trees that they actually dry out more if you leave them in the lot than if you bring them home in November and keep them well watered. So we've been getting our tree the day after Thanksgiving and leaving up until January 6th ever since then and it looks great!

    -glitterstocking-The day before Thanksgiving, I set up ahead of time all that i can. I also make my stuffing and butternut squash casserole. On Thanksgiving morning, I make a baked omelet for breakfast. We also have fruit, toast and pumpkin bread with our breakfast. My husband and i exchange one small gift .
