How are you planning to celebrate Thanksgiving this year — cook at home, go to family, or eat out?

“There’s just the four of us — my mom, husband and daughter, and we will have a quiet dinner at home. I will do the cooking. Last year we decided to not have the traditional turkey meal, but we had a huge taco bar instead. We haven’t decided what we are doing this year.”

Amber Killian of Princeton

“I will get together with my mom and sisters and the family. There will be about 30 of us. I will do the pies and homemade buns. We will have a big sit-down dinner with turkey and ham and all the extras.”

Pam Busch of Princeton

“We will get together with our family, our kids, grandkids and great-grandkids. We will have four different states represented, Pennsylvania, Ohio, Indiana and Illinois. My one grandson always asks me to bring my homemade noodles and canned applesauce, and that’s what I will do.”

Lou Brown of Princeton

“We always have a big family get-together with our kids, grandkids and great-grandkids. This year we will get together in Spring Valley. We have all the traditional food; this year we are having a deep fried turkey. I’m bringing the pies, pumpkin, pecan and chocolate.”

Clara Pease of Princeton

“This year, as we have done for the past six or seven years, we will get together with my brother and sister-in-law. My sister-in-law likes to buy everything, and then we go early so I can help prepare everything. We will have turkey, corn and always fried sweet potatoes. I will bring the pies.”
