This or That: Thanksgiving Edition

Happy Tuesday!  It feels like Thursday though, woo hoo!
I'm linking up for "This or That" today!

Stuffing or Mashed Potatoes
Definitely both.  Bring on the carbs!
Homemade cranberry sauce, or Store bought cranberry sauce
I didn't like cranberry sauce until maybe last year.  Yes, I'm almost 30.  Definitely homemade!
Pumpkin Pie, or Pecan Pie
Pumpkin Pie!  Another thing I didn't like until last year.  Now, I cook a ton of things with pumpkin at this time of year.  Pecan pie is yummy but so sweet it makes your teeth hurt, ha!
Cooking all day, or Cleaning up all night
Cooking/baking all day!  Cleaning up is the absolute worst.
Thanksgiving Day Parade, or Football game
Thanksgiving Day Parade!!!  Festive, traditional and fun.
I will definitely NOT be shopping on Thursday OR Friday (online on Friday doesn't count, lol).  The craze of Black Friday gives me anxiety and I don't like it.  Plenty of deals are to be had from the comfort of my couch, in my PJs.  I sound like my mother.
Do you go out and brave the Black Friday Madness?


  1. Hi from "this or that"! I am so with you on the no shopping on Thursday or Friday...in fact my goal is to order as many gifts online this year to avoid the craziness of the stores! Good for you for trying new Thanksgiving foods :) Hope you have a happy Thanksgiving!

  2. I would say cranberry sauce is not the most appetizing thing to look at so I don't blame you for not trying it until last year. I have never tried the actual sauce myself, and I'm 32, but do like the jellied sauce you buy in a can. :) NO WAY am I entering a store on Tgiving Day!! I think that is the most ridiculous thing ever!!! Those stores should be drug out in the street and shot! Shame on them for taking people away from their families!

  3. We live way in the booneys so I would have to miss all of thanksgiving to go shopping anywhere! No thanks!! I missed out on cranberry sauce for a long time but now I'm all in! Thanks for linking up lady!

  4. I'm. It in the states and hate Black Friday!! I don't blame you for not shopping! And agreed to both carbs! Love them! I've recently started cooking with pumpkin too, I now love it!
    I hope you guys have a very happy thanksgiving!!
