Tomorrow's Thanksgiving. What are you having/did you have for dinner tonight?

I made Sloppy Joes, mashed potatoes, and carrots.

I'm waiting for some pizza dough to finish proofing, and it'll be Chicago-style thin crust (cut into squares) with homemade Italian sausage on one, and mushrooms and green peppers on the other. And me and the kids made strawberry cupcakes (with real strawberries both in the cupcakes and icing), so I guess that's dessert!

Not sure yet - it will be either leftover short ribs from last night, or pasta with garlicky broccoli rabe, possibly made with chickpea pasta or with chickpeas added, or some combination of those.

Buffalo wings and a Neapolitan pepperoni pie from our favorite pizzeria down the block. Request from my 21 year old son, home from college, who’d rather eat his favorite takeout than a home made dinner prepared by his poppa’s loving hands, th’ little shit.

Were having Screaming Sicilian Holy Pepperoni pizza with ranch dressing. The Boy Scouts finally delivered our popcorn, so that's dessert.

Bought some boneless strip steaks to cook at my mom's house. The sides are Broccoli with cheese sauce and baked potatoes. Brown & Serve rolls.

Desert is sweet potato pie.

This is what the Pilgrims really wanted, instead of a dry bird. LOL

Cottage cheese with crackers...mostly because I don't feel very well, and I have to be at work in an hour.

Waiting for the bread I made to use for dressing tomorrow to finish baking. When it cools, I'll make a little ham sammy to go with baked chips, cottage cheese, a hard boiled egg and some sliced tomato. A couple of Mandarin oranges for dessert.

Leftovers or we'll go out for Chinese. Maybe out for a movie. Still deciding.

I have two sausage quiches in the oven. Breakfast for dinner sounded nice and easy as I'm using the kitchen to try to prepare as much I can for tomorrow. A couple of pie plates, a dozen eggs, a pound of sausage and some milk and cheese, nothing special. As a bonus it's going to be breakfast for tomorrow so no kitchen mess. I think this might be my new tradition.

Mandarin oranges as an appetizer, boneless pork chops, parmesan couscous, and an éclair for Dad, and a cream puff for me.

Frozen french fries (yes I baked them first) and a handful of grapes. I grazed all day at work on all the food that was sitting around so not real hungry now.

I'm starting with a bowl of corn chowder, followed by a double-cut Kurobuta pork chop. Green beans and mashed on the side. Dessert is still up in the air.

The boychik isn't crazy about Thanksgiving food, so he gets to pick, and he picked pizza. He loves to help make the dough. Made one with extra cheese and extra sauce for him, and one with lots of veggies for DH and me.

We have a box of chocolates for dessert.

Tomorrow he is going to be allowed to have a Smart Dog instead of Tofurky. It's all soy anyway, and it leaves more Tofurky for the rest of us. He has to eat two bits of each of the vegetables, though. I can't believe I have a kid who doesn't like vegetables. He used to eat all kinds of vegetables when he was a baby and toddler. I blame peer pressure.

I arrived at my parents' house earlier this afternoon. Tonight's dinner was very straightforward -- my father ran over to Papa Murphy's, and got a take-and-bake pizza for us.

We had a late-is lunch of BBQ, so my supper was an apple. I may have some ice cream in a little bit.

On Thanksgiving Eve the Mrs. and I enjoyed some chicken vindaloo with mango chutney and naan. Also some oven-roasted eggplant which we had lying around occupying space.

It was quite nice.

It's been a day of Thanksgiving prep and running a bunch of errands. Plus we had two grandkids in tow that we weren't planning on having to watch today. So we just ran by Papa Murphy's while we were out and brought a couple of pizzas home.

I had leftover hong shao rou with some type of large radish added, and some stir fried celery with ground beef. I think everyone here that's not vegetarian would love hong shao rou (bacon/belly braised with a bunch of delicious ingredients). My wife cooked, since I'm taking care of tomorrow's turkey.

Thrilled to death we're skipping Thanksgiving altogether tomorrow! Tonight: chili dogs. Tomorrow we will rummage through the freezer for whatever strikes our fancy, though I have a lovely apple/walnut/blue cheese salad for MY main course.

Tomorrow we're all going to my sister's for a big Thanksgiving dinner. My daughter decided she wanted to fix one before hand so we'd have plenty of leftovers for this weekend. We had baked ham, Irish potatoes, sweet potatoes, cranberry sauce, brussel sprouts, two types of dressing and pumpkin pie.

Uncured (all the rage!) turkey dogs, tater tots and blackberries. Said dog's honey buns will be baked with butter and slathered with carmelized onions and brown mustard, much to my youngest's chagrin "I want ketchup!"
