Green bean casserole
And a salad

For the dessert table
Pumpkin Pie
Coconut cream pie

Our family Thanksgiving is a potluck of sorts.

I'm planning to bring a rib roast, sliced ham, cranberry jelly, a jalapeno-cheeseball with crackers, and some rolls. 

The rest of what's there will be a surprise, but I reckon there will be turkey and sweet potatoes and green bean casserole.  And good Southern iced tea.

I'll be at work, probably eating a sandwich of some sort, and I'll have the Bills/Lions game on.

Yogi, in all sincerity, I love your spirit and the simplicity of your life, and your thankful heart! I have spoiled my children and grandchildren, it might just come back and cause pain down the road.

They moved the game to Detroit. The snow had stopped prior to game time, but the issue was getting people to and from the stadium safely, so they opted to move the game. Still would have been a major task to try and clear 6 1/2 feet of snow, mother nature will take care of the majority of it now.
Buffalo had home field in Detroit, the first time they've had a team with a winning record in decades  rofl

So the Bills are back home until Wednesday night, then back to Detroit for the Thanksgiving Day game.

Looks like the city of Buffalo didn't get hit too bad but just south was really bad.

Yeah, Orchard Park (where the stadium is) and Hamburg got the worst of it, still pretty bad in the south part of the city, but got better north, closer to the border.

Not me.  I want the meat on the bread.  Including maybe mashed potatoes and gravy with the meat on the bread.

Quote from: THE WISE MAN
Proverbs 15:17~Better is a dinner of herbs where love is, than a stalled ox and hatred therewith.

A mere salad for the entrée? If love unites the hearts at the table, it can be a feast. But if there is hatred present, even prime filet mignon disappoints. A few green, leafy vegetables enjoyed with love is more pleasant than a steak dinner with resentment. The rule holds true for dry crackers as well, if there is peace instead of fighting (Proverbs17:1).

The Preacher, King Solomon, taught wisdom by comparisons. By showing one thing better than another, he taught wise priorities. In this case, we should value love more than dinner fare and material things. Emphasizing love and peace is more important than picking the right restaurant and spending extra money. Even the very poor can be happy.

How wise are we? Knowledge, understanding, and good judgment rank and prioritize goals and daily efforts to maximize our life and the lives around you. The get-ahead-at-any-cost or the I-would-rather-be-rich mentality of the world is destructive. How many so-called successful people suffer from depression? Here is the cure. Learn it today.

If a poor man wrote the proverb, who often settled for vegetable meals, the lesson might be despised. However, it was written by the richest king of his era, who could choose any culinary possibility every time he sat for a meal ~a stalled ox being grain-fed prime beef with limited movement for extra marbling and superb taste. Solomon enjoyed meals daily that a poor man could not even imagine, yet he exalted love and peace above them.

Have you ever had a meal with bitterness, hatred, contention, or resentment there? Do you remember the tenseness? The stress? And how it ruined what should have been a pleasant event? You may not even remember what you ate for the pain of the atmosphere.

Have you ever had a wonderful meal with just a few simple things, because you loved the persons you were with, and they loved you? A salad or snack was plenty, because of the atmosphere. You may not remember what you ate for the sweet pleasure of the company.

Many families have meals with strife and tension. It becomes a habit, and they do not even know their error. Strife becomes a family tradition. The conversation is negative and critical; the children may sarcastically cut each other; and some are sullenly silent in quiet rage. No one truly wants to be there. These things should never be in a Christian home.

Bitter envying and strife are from hell (James 3:14-16), and peace and gentleness are from heaven (James 3:17-18). Do not deceive ourself to think otherwise. Hate conflict and strife. It is the duty and privilege of believers to pursue love and peace, and as a result they can have more pleasant and fulfilling events than the worldly rich can ever design or execute.

Modern greedy societies emphasize material things as the measure of success. But Solomon taught here in these few words that the good life is not dependent on what you have, but rather the love you share. Godliness with contentment is great gain (Ist Timothy 6:6), but this inspired wisdom from heaven is too much for the world’s educated to understand.

Many measure an evening by the status of the restaurant, the number of courses, or the creativity or expense of the entrée. But the more important issue should be the company and the relationships among the guests. Then the menu does not even matter. This lesson of life should never be compromised, and then food disappointments or large bills can never affect a meal or its memory, because it is based in the loving company instead.

How many meals have contentious women spoiled (Proverbs 12:4; 19:13; 21:9,19; 27:15-16)? What memories do their children have? How often will they choose to visit for dinner with an overbearing, critical, and odious mother waiting for them? Pity the husband, who cannot leave and move away like the children, but must painfully endure her every day.

Since women generally prepare meals, and a good meal even from simple ingredients takes much effort to plan, purchase, prepare, and clean up, it should be the role of men to make sure the family loves one another and is at peace. Husbands! Fathers! You should correct offenders, mend injuries, settle grievances, keep peace, and promote love. This coordinated effort should be a family tradition and a highly-regarded hospitality team.

Brethren dwelling together in unity is precious (Psalms 133:1-3), but when it is enjoyed over a meal, it is truly special, no matter what is served. It is fellowship of a heavenly sort. Seek the joy and unity of Pentecost and its sweet fellowship from house to house (Acts 2:46). The bond of Jesus Christ and gospel truth is far more valuable than any other connection.

What will we do today to correct and perfect relationships in our home? With love in all directions, what is on the table becomes quite irrelevant. Have we offended others? Have they offended us? Are we harboring bitterness? The remedies are simple, by the grace of the Lord Jesus (Proverbs 19:11; Matthew 5:23-24; 18:15-16; Ephesians 4:31-32; Colossians 3:12-15).

Thursday, prepare a meal for those we love, without over spending or working much at all. Promote peace and unity, and foster love one for another~no matter what you eat. The result will be a balm to each soul present and joyful pleasure to every heart and praise to our God.

I only make for Thanksgiving... but

If you look out in your local groceries see if you can find these

https://www.amazon.com/Lobster-Gluten-Cheddar-Biscuit-11-36oz/dp/B086WPZ78X/ref=asc_df_B086WPZ78X?tag=bingshoppinga-20&linkCode=df0&hvadid=79989562836370&hvnetw=o&hvqmt=e&hvbmt=be&hvdev=c&hvlocint=&hvlocphy=&hvtargid=pla-4583589110616517&psc=1

or get from Amazon.

Truth be told they are amazing and if the real is 10 out of 10 these non gluten ones are an 8 out of 10.

I do them for mom and me several times a year as they are the only non gluten bread type product worth anything.

Give them a try.

They are great on mom's diabetes....

Sounds wonderful.

especially your relish plate. Years ago we cut way back and now only put on ours those things that seem to go.

Black and green olives and pickled beets.  My pickles just seemed to be a non starter.

A blessed Thanksgiving to you, and all here.

We had a great day with most of our grandchildren being here, with their parents. I gave them all an opportunity to offer a personal thanksgiving for God's blessings upon them before we had dinner, and then I offered prayer with thanksgiving.

It has been really tough. And it will get even tougher at Christmas time.  At least at Christmas I will have both sons with me and maybe my grandson.  Bit by bit, it is getting easier. But I do miss her so very much.  Thank you for thinking of me.
