Thanksgiving Plans???

Hope everyone has a very Blessed Thanksgiving.

Next year at this time we will be FT. We were visiting what do FT'rs do for
Holiday Plans? Thanksgiving, Christmas...

Do we prepare traditional meal in the RV? Not even sure which CG we will be at if there are planned activities or will we go out and eat.

Making a traditional turkey. Not sure that oven RV is big enough... hmm
Perhaps that is a good thing....

Not a FTimer here, but we are trying a new Thanksgiving idea this year with our RV.. we will be camping with several other families (all with pre-teen and teenage kids) at the Guadalupe River RV Resort. They host a feast and campers bring a dish to pass. Certainly will be different for us, but we are looking forward to it. Never had S'mores after the Thanksgiving turkey, so we might as well try it!

We have gotten into the habit of missing most holidays. Both sets of parents are gone and so are brothers and sister. Plus the Sharp oven just is not big enought for a turkey.

Both of our families are on the East coast. For Thanksgiving Thom and I will just cook something and stay in while he studies his lines. He is the lead in a play "A Christmas Mother Goose" so has lots of lines to get down.
For Christmas we are actually going over to the directors house. Her and her husband invite lots over that don't have much family around for dinner and a "White Elephant" gift giving party. We did that last year and had a blast.
For New Years Eve we are talking about maybe going to Las Vegas. Not sure but hey we have a house on wheels so who knows, lol.

Turkey Day

We're on the way to Galveston Bay for a while. Going to Throw a couple of T-Bones on the BBQ. Pumpkin pies frozen in the fridge.

Just the two of us, should be a really nice day.

Our son and daughter in law are stationed out of state, and our daughter is away at college a few hours from here, and will be working for part of the day. Cooking the traditional Thanksgiving dinner for just the two of us is a bit much.
Last year, we took the RV to the beach for a long weekend, and our daughter came down to join us for dinner at a restaurant. We enjoyed it so much, we're doing it again this year.
In a few years, when we are full-timing, then we'll go to visit the children wherever they are.

I ignore it, and sure enough, it goes away.

My spouse loves the Thanksgiving meal so I will be cooking the works. The turkey goes on the smoker and things like cranberry sauce and dessert can be made ahead. Will be just the two of us but it is a tradition that we enjoy.

This year we will have the kids for the Holiday, but when it is just the two of us the DW roasts a turkey breast. Doesn't take a big oven and she makes stuffing with it as well as gravy. I like it just as well as a whole bird.

Then some cranberrys and pumpkin pie and I'm out for the afternoon.

We're not fulltime but maybe 1/2 time as we're usually gone 6 to 7 months a year. Tomorrow we're celebrating Thanksgiving with the kids and then next Tuesday leave for our winter destination.
