    Looks yummy. This year we are making Thanksgiving dinner from scratch. In the prior 3-4 years we have done the Safeway pre-made Thanksgiving dinner. Their price went up to $44.00 so we opted to go the cheaper route. Gotta dig out the recipe books now.

    Hi JJ,

    I think you’ll enjoy making the dinner. All the good smells are wonderful! When I do family dinners, I usually get a couple of the salads from the deli. We are going to my husband’s family for Thanksgiving, so I am just doing a few things to bring. But, Christmas will be at my house and like you, this year have decided everything will be homemade.
