Each year my Thanksgiving is spent with my family or my husband’s family and we each help with the meal by bringing a dish. This year is with my family and I will be bring orange rolls to my moms. I love that I can make the dough the night before. Then in the morning, I just shape the rolls and let them raise while I get tother things done.

I also remember as a girl getting to sleep over at my grandma’s house the night before Thanksgiving.

We would get what we could done that night and then I would be there in the morning to help with the rest of the meal preparation. It is one of my best memories with my grandma. This is something I would love to do when I am a grandma. Thanksgiving really is my favorite holiday. I love that it is all about family, food, and showing gratitude.

I have a Butterball Turkey Giveaway for 2 lucky RMK readers for Thanksgiving. Each will get a $20 turkey certificate. I love to use Butterball turkeys. The really can be placed in the oven just with some salt and pepper and turn out amazing. However, they are even better if you want to do something a little more fancy.

Not only does Butterball make a great turkey, they have been helping folks out with their Thanksgiving meal for years.

Their Turkey Talk-Line experts are available to answer your Thanksgiving meal questions, share ways to save, or to gobble up any turkey-day cooking myths. I used them before when trying to deep fry a turkey.  They were right there to help me out.

You can also go to Butterball’s website to plan the perfect amount of servings you need in their perfect portion planner.  Just plug in the amount of adults and kids you plan on serving into the planner. There are boxes you can check to say we want leftovers, we are big eaters, or we are light eaters. Then, it will tell you the size of turkey you need along with the amount of stuffing.  So simple.  They also have video guides on topics such as how to thaw or carve.

  1. We were actually going over the menu today; I always like to ask everyone if there’s anything special they want me to make each year. I’m lucky because my family usually helps with the cooking a lot too.

  2. My kids love to help plan and pick their favorite traditions. My husband cooks the turkey on his grill and it turns out amazing!

  3. Sometimes I make the whole meal myself, and invite co-workers who can’t get off and don’t have family close by. Other times I go to an extended family potluck and bring a couple of sides and one or two desserts.

  5. I’m a firm believer of too many cooks in the kitchen spoil the pot. I actually enjoy cooking a huge dinner, I let everyone clean up after wards, which since I clean up as I go there really isn’t much of mess.

  6. The only involvement I usually get… is by asking them what they “especially” would like me to cook. AND I go from there — that’s usually it.

  8. We all pitch in on big holiday meals–with side dishes, bread, desserts, whatever the hosts ask for. It’s fun to see what everyone brings, and it’s always delicious. Thanks!

  23. We take turns hosting and everyone brings different dishes. One thing that we can always count on is a moist turkey from Butterball. Thanks

  24. I have my kids help me with simple things like putting out the relish dish or setting the table. I think they are more excited that way.

My mom makes the dressing and her wonderful cream pies. Then I get make my favorite things and yeast rolls.

  36. We all bring a few dishes to my moms house and then she isn’t stuck with everything. The kids make place settings so that everyone has little cup of nuts to know where to sit.
