When you have your Thanksgiving meal, do you always have turkey? Or maybe prime rib or what does your family like best to eat on that day?

It's always been turkey for my family. This year it's turkey pizza for Thanksgiving, since it's only me and the dog.

Always a Turkey. I cook the same menu every year for my family. This year the kids are having their significant others over. Along with the Turkey we have, stuffing, fancy cheese potatoes, green bean casserole, broccoli cheese casserole, deviled eggs, Knorr vegetable dip, cranberry sauce, gravy, Hawaiian sweet rolls. Dessert is Pumpkin pie with Cool Whip and Apple pie with Haagen Daz vanilla ice cream.

I have never been a big fan of turkey, but as a kid, I always ate with out complaining. I knew my grandmother would slave over it and I didn't want to hurt her feelings. After she passed away, my mom took over the Thanksgiving turkey. The day after when I was looking for something to eat she told me to have a turkey sandwich.  That was when I told her I didn't like turkey. She was stunned I never said anything. By this time I was in my early 20s. The following Thanksgiving she started to make lasagna as well as turkey. So for me it isn't Thansgiving without lasagna.

I consider turkey mandatory for both Thanksgiving and Christmas---I like fresh turkey, and those are usually the only times of the year that I can get them unfrozen.

On the other hand, we have a Thanksgiving celebration on the Saturday before Thanksgiving for friends and family so that we don't contribute to anyone having to eat three meals at different houses on Thanksgiving day.

Interestingly enough, my wife informed me about a week ago that the menu would include turkey (brined of course), ham, shrimp scampi, and short ribs. (I didn't even ask.)
