Do you have any traditions for Thanksgiving Eve? Just want to eat and get back to preparations for tomorrow? Nibble to clean out the fridge? What are you having for Thanksgiving Eve dinner?
This year traditions go out the window......................
Traditionally, it was pizza. With family arriving at assorted times and in assorted stages of hunger, an assortment of pizza in the family room worked.
This year, tonight is the first night of Chanukkah, so we'll be having brisket from the smoker, latkes, applesauce, roasted vegetables, cole slaw, jelly donuts for dessert.
The locals will all light the menorah at sundown and eat a festive holiday meal. The travelers will find a buffet of the above set up in the sun room to make plates/sanwiches and enjoy at will. I shall be spending the evening from 7:30 on in the kitchen preparing tommorrow's meal.
Since tomorrow I eat, today I fast - so a salad this evening will be it for me! Everone else in my household is on their own.
Staying in to bake pies to take to family gathering tomorrow. Grown daughter in town so we're making sukiyaki, and sake!
