Hello! It's been a busy couple of days. We have been having a blast at my parents house in Clearwater since Monday. The weather was perfect yesterday so we hit up the children's zoo for the afternoon.
I found this fun lil Thanksgiving survey on PB Fingers this morning so I thought I'd do it as well. Enjoy!
Favorite Thanksgiving food?
My mom's stuffing makes Thanksgiving Thanksgiving. Without it, it's just not Thanksgiving.
What is one of your favorite Thanksgiving memories?
My favorite part of every Thanksgiving is my dad and me helping mom build the stuffing. We are her official taste testers and tell her to add more spice or poultry seasoning or whatever. It's a delicious process!!
Do you go to a movie on Thanksgiving?
Any Thanksgiving foods that you do not like?
Not a fan of cranberry sauce.
How do you feel about stores opening up on Thanksgiving day?
I have never been a Black Friday shopper, but I feel like they have ruined the fun of Black Friday by opening on Thanksgiving. The thought of going shopping on Thanksgiving, or getting up at the crack of dawn to stand in line to shop isn't appealing to me. There is nothing I need to buy that bad.
Do you hit up stores on Thursday/Black Friday, or do you avoid them like the plague?
We might go out in the middle of the day on Friday to see if there are any sales, but it's not a ritual.
Do you typically run a race or go for a run on Thanksgiving morning?
Yes. We have been running The Times Turkey Troy in Clearwater on and off since I was in high school. I love running the Turkey Trot because it makes me feel good to start the day, which is mostly spent sitting around and eating, with a little activity.
Do you prefer a big get together for Thanksgiving, or keep it small?
We keep it fairly small every year - my parents, my in laws and us.
What are you in charge of to make this Thanksgiving? Or are you hosting the whole meal?
This year I am in charge of desserts. I made my mom's famous pound cake yesterday. And tomorrow I will be trying a new recipe - Ohana's bread pudding with bananas foster sauce. Oooooh! Never made it before, so we will see how it goes.
What time do you typically eat Thanksgiving dinner?
Usually around 3.
That's it!! I hope you have a super Thanksgiving!!!!
