That sounds similar to how we do Thanksgiving at our house.

I've come to the conclusion that my in-laws won't eat anything that I prepare. Last year, I made an assortment of white, wheat, and rye bread rolls - so fresh they were still warm when we arrived and the only people who ate them were my husband and children. Everyone else opted for brown and serve rolls that didn't even get warmed up. My in-laws are extremely clean people and I think they don't trust the food I make. It's funny, because I am considered quite the baker and cook on my side of the family. The only reason that I even took the bread rolls last year is because my family requested them for their dinner, even though we weren't attending, so I decided I'd be damned if I was going to make such awesome bread all morning before dinner and not eat it.

In years past, I've been asked to bring 2 liters of pop, pies bought from a particular bakery, boxes of crackers and unopened packages of cheese (not a cheese plate), etc.

I always host. My sister makes the potatoes, both regular mashed and sweet. I invite any of my grad students who can't make it home for t-day to join us.

Wow, that's really bizarre and annoying.

I'd probably start my own Thanksgiving tradition. (Hey, wait, my in laws are horrible, and that's what I did... if they want to have Thanksgiving with their son and grandkids, they can come here and follow my rules.)

We're spending a long weekend with family in the mountains. I do most of the cooking, but everyone contributes something. Thanksgiving marks the end of the semester at work, so I can't wait.

We'll go to my mom's. Will be just my family, the sibs, Drunkle #3 and my cousin from LA.

First Thanksgiving without my dad. :(

I babysat at Erica's house last night, about a 15 minute drive across town.
