Thankful for Books Giveaway Hop

Welcome to the Thankful for Books Giveaway Hop, hosted by yours truly, Reading Reality, and the Caffeinated Reviewer!

I hope you’re all ready for tomorrow’s Turkey Day! We’re doing something a bit different and having friends over on Black Friday instead of on Thanksgiving. It solves their problem of trying to be two places at once – which no one has really figured out a solution for yet – and doing our cooking on a day when we CAN go to the grocery store if we forgot something important.

So on the actual Turkey Day we’re having actual turkey – really just a turkey boob for two. On Friday we’re getting a Honey Baked Ham – something that would be a bear to pick up on Wednesday but should be easy-peasy on Friday. We’re also making potato pancakes and a broccoli casserole because OMG that meal will need something green in it. It’s all kind of an experiment as we’re cooking things we’ve never made before and hoping it all works out. No matter what, the ham is guaranteed to be good. And the pie. Did I mention the pie? We’re picking up a Chocolate Chess Pie, which I don’t think either of us has ever had, from a place that specializes in pies.

That’ll definitely be just fine!

What about you? What’s your favorite Thanksgiving treat? Answer in the Rafflecopter for a chance at the winner’s choice of a $15(US) gift card to either Amazon or the local bookstore of your choice, or the same amount in books, again from either Amazon, the Book Depository, or the local bookstore of your choice. In order to do this there are just a couple of restrictions. For US entrants, the bookstore you choose needs to have an easy method for me to purchase your gift certificate  or books online and get them sent to you. If you are outside the US, you need to be in a location that the Book Depository ships to (they don’t do Gift Certificates – maybe someday.)

  1. I honestly love the turkey and stuffing. Thanksgiving and Christmas are the only times during the year that we eat that so it is always a real treat for me

  2. it’s a good idea to have Thanksgiving on Friday instead of Thursday when it seems most stores will be closed now. Not sure what I’m going to do yet since most of my family is out of town this year. I’m thankful for the rest I’ll get!

    Thanks again for hosting! 🙂

  3. We are having a turkey (my first time cooking one!!!), baked ham (courtesy of my mom – hers is the best, covered in pineapples and cherries), Pork roast (courtesy of my sister) potato salad, candied yams, rice and gravy, green beans, cornbread dressing, corn casserole and for deserts, chocolate cream pie, strawberry cheesecake, chocolate cake, peach crumb cake (found a recipe and decided to try it). My favorite part – the roast rice and gravy!

  4. My favorite Thanksgiving treat is pumpkin pie with lots of whipped topping! Thank you so much for the giveaway! Happy Thanksgiving!

  5. Hmm…for me, Thanksgiving is just not Thanksgiving without turkey, however, I *have* to eat it with mashed potatoes.

  6. That’s a great plan. We’ve had those years when we needed to split our time on Thanksgiving day between two places. LOL, hope all your first tries work great. My favorite Thanksgiving treat is my mom’s corn pudding.

    Happy Thanksgiving, Marlene!
