Going to my in-laws again for Thanksgiving. They don't celebrate Christmas, so we go to my parents for Christmas and them for Thanksgiving. Makes divi-ing up holidays easy! My parents usually come to the in-laws' place for Thanksgiving now, since it's just the two of them.
My in-laws do Thanksgiving as an actual early dinner (like 6:00) which I still haven't gotten used to. Growing up it was a very late lunch, and then you sat around all day letting it digest. In-laws also have tater tots, which is still weird to me, but they are tasty so no complaints. My mother-in-law makes a lot of her German recipes, so we get two kinds of cabbage, sometimes beets, feldsalat with dill dressing if we can find the feldsalat or hers actually grew this year (Feldsalat I think is the same as lamb's lettuce, and it likes the weather to be really cold before it will germinate). My dad brings a really good stuffing that he makes. We bring chocolate pecan pie, although we get it from Whole Foods and every year for the last five year there are fewer and fewer pecans and more and more "goop." We got pies from another local place last year (in addition to the Whole Foods pies), and everyone seemed to like them, but the crust was terrible to me -- mealy instead of flaky.
We take the train up there most every year because traffic on the highway between the two cities is just unbearable. It was seven years ago now that we thought we'd beat traffic by leaving really late at night on Saturday (like 11:00). We got stuck in a traffic jam in the literal middle of nowhere (just cornfields for miles and miles) at 2:00 in the morning. Apparently we weren't the only ones with that idea. I said "never again" to driving. The train is slow, but with the traffic the way it is now, it is still sometimes faster. And there is no stress.
ETA: so much to be thankful for that I can't even begin. It would take forever to write it all down.
