I know this isn't a traditional Thanksgiving thing to do but....for the past 4 years me and my mom have been going to the Casino in Metropolis, IL. on Thanksgiving...My son, Tyler usually goes to see his dad so it's been just the 2 of us so why bother making a big ole mess when I can go play the Slots????  I choose the SLOTS..
2 Whole Nights in a Pretty Nice Hotel right at the casino....just me and my slot machine....Cannot wait.

Where is Metropolis IL? Is that around Joliet? One of the riverboat casinos? I have only been to one casino off of I-55 with my friend and he was driving as he goes there all the time, but that was many many years ago, and I don't remember the name, but I don't remember them haveing food. I know the Casio over by Omaha Nebraska where my oldest daughter lives has one heck of a dining place and they really put out the food! Anyway sound like you have a good plan for Turkey Day!

For myself I bought two turkey legs and a couple of Turkey Necks, I am going to Roast the legs and boil the turkey necks and use the meat and the broth to make Turkey Bread dressing Tomorrow I will grind the oranges and Cranberries and make the Cranberry salad, and do the dressing, that way on Turkey day I will only reheat the dressing and roast the legs and make the gravy ( will use instant mashed taters) then I will watch the Macy Day Parade while the legs are roasting and then I will eat my Turkey meal and put in a VCR tape (Miracle on 34 th Street Orginal Version,) and watch it! It will be the three of us " me, myself and I" for this ThanksGiving! I know it might sound funny doing all that cooking for just me, but I like to cook and I want to have a traditional Thanks Giving like I normally have, and I will not let this year being by myself change that! Anyway this will be a whole new experience for me, but I need to get used to it! So no time like the present!
