|Our family alternates where we have Thanksgiving dinner. When it's my husband's family's turn we usually have dinner at my sister-in-laws home. She has the most space to fit everyone. The host will typically cook the turkey and potatoes and everyone else who is invited will bring a favorite side dish.
My husband makes amazing stuffing and that is what we offer to bring. He is good at the cranberry sauce and we often bring that as well. We stuff ourselves on vegetables before the dinner and when Thanksgiving dinner is served we eat Turkey, potatoes, stuffing, ham, rolls and after a few hours of resting our stomachs we eat pie. Pumpkin is the popular choice, but we have other options that include chocolate cream, banana cream and apple.
Our entire family helps in the clean-up process so that it doesn't take very long. My in-laws enjoy the football game so that is on in the back ground. Most of the family has a different team to root for, so depending on who is playing it can become quite noisy with all the commentary about whose team is best.
When we arrive back home we are so full all we can do is lay on the sofa and watch our Direct TV. I usually DVR my favorite shows and that way we never miss them.
