Strange Customs

My kids have never been a big fan of the traditional Thanksgiving meal.  Over the years, we have eaten out or fixed steamed shrimp, because that's something everyone could agree on.  Last year I wanted traditional, so I fixed turkey and dressing and all the trimmings.

This year, we're going to my daughter's house, and she and her brother are going to cook the non-traditional meal of their choice.  The menu will include stuffed peppers with orzo and lamb, couscous with butternut squash, sausage and fennel stuffing, spinach salad, and I'm bringing pumpkin pie.  This is definitely something different!

Imagine what a laugh my husband and I had when we went out for Chinese food last night and this was his fortune!

What will you be eating for Thanksgiving?


  1. Here in Australia we don't celebrate Thanksgiving, although I think it's a great tradition .... I don't think it matters what you eat, as long as you are together as a family.

  2. LOL - that's perfect!
    We will be having traditional. My kids are exactly the opposite of yours. They pitch a fit if I suggest any deviation in the holiday meal. But Mom, we HAVE to have this or that....

  3. That fortune is great!! I'm all for nontraditional Thanksgiving meals; it's all about spending time together anyway, no matter what you're eating. :)

  4. Haha! Yes, indeed! Now, who doesn't believe in fortune cookies?
