Turkey Trot Link-Up

1. What do you look forward to more: the food, football or parades? Definitely the Food!!

2. What is your favorite non-traditional Thanksgiving Day dish? Chicken and Dumplings. We have them every year, but I don't think they are traditional at most family gatherings.

3. After dinner, is it football or a nap? A nap for sure! I'm not really that big of a football fan. If you asked my husband though, he would say football for #1 and #3!

4. Do you watch the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade? Which is your favorite float? I have watched the Parade in the past, but its not a tradition of mine. I love all the floats, but the float with Santa at the end is always my favorite.

5. Where do you go to celebrate and eat your big meal? Who is there (family, friends)? We always celebrate Thanksgiving with Jake's family the weekend before, which happened to be this past weekend. His mom has a brother who lives here in St. Louis and a sister who lives in Kansas City. We take turns each year celebrating in each city. This year it was at my husband's Aunt and Uncle's house in K.C. We had a great weekend with about 30 people. Jake's mom, his 2 brothers and their families, his Aunt and Uncle from K.C., their 2 kids and spouses and then his other Aunt and Uncle, their 2 kids and one of their spouses. We had a great time! 

Then on Thanksgiving Day we always go to my Great Aunt and Uncle's house here in St. Louis. I've been going there every year since I was a child. We always have a great time! Its my mom's Aunt and Uncle, so my Papa Reg is there, my mom's brothers and their families, my sister and her family and several other aunts, uncles and cousins!

 6. What is your favorite turkey day dessert? It would have to be the pumpkin pie!! I'm the designated pumpkin pie maker for my side of the family and I love making them. We always have so many pies and cakes though, and I love sweets so I usually get a little bit of each thing! 


I hope you all enjoy your Thanksgiving!!

Very cool to be "outside the box" with the chicken and dumplins, I always thought it would be cool to switch it up, but it's hard to stray from tradition. Hope you all have a fabulous Thanksgiving, I hear we are going to have decent weather in the Lou =)
