What was the last thing you said thank you for/who was the last person you thanked?

Who was the last person that said thank you to you?

What are you making for Thanksgiving? 

Bonus:  Do you shop on Black Friday?  Any favorite stops?

I believe it was the toll taker, for taking my money.  That doesn't really sound like something to be thankful for, does it?LOL  This one older gentleman who works in one of the cash booths is my sole reason for not getting an EZ-Pass.  I would so miss seeing him every morning.  

Who was the last person that said thank you to you?

My boss, for making him laugh.  He doesn't do enough of that these days.  

What are you making for Thanksgiving? 

Turkey breast (no one in our family eats dark meat, so we stopped serving whole turkeys sometime in the 70s), mashed potatoes, sweet potato puff (making it for lunch at my mom's but will probably do a small one for us to have with dinner), a couple of yet to be determined green veggies, corn pudding.  Will do something light for dessert.  No pies, since there's already a week's worth of carbs listed above.  ;)  

Bonus:  Do you shop on Black Friday?  Any favorite stops? 

No.  I did it once, but it really wasn't worth the effort.

"DH he always thanks me for making dinner." ------ Same here and we always thanked my mother or whoever else cooked. Same in my grandparents' house. It is also a custom in Scandinavia that the "host" - i.e. the person who cooked - formally ends the meal with "velbekomme," to which the others say "thank you for the meal."

It's not a dish. It's just a general slang term for potatoes.  So it can be baked taters, mashed taters, all sorts of things. In my post, however, I was referring to mashed potatoes.

"Here, I put the coffee and water in machine before bed, then the first one up in the morning turns on the machine." I used to do that when I was single. DH is a coffee snob and insists that the beans must be ground immediately before brewing. Yeah, I know.

I've not heard that word substituted for potato, No.  How do you make it?

DH is an earlier riser than me too, He's good at it, I'm guilty of making coffee either too weak or too strong.
