QUESTION | What are your family traditions for Thanksgiving?

ANSWER | When we are having dinner we go through and discuss one thing we are thankful for.

What are you thankful for? My family, that we are all healthy and doing good.

What Thanksgiving dish are you looking forward to the most?

That’s always a toss up between the homemade stuffing and the Reese’s Peanut Butter Pie.

What Thanksgiving side dish could you do without? The candied yams. I prefer baked with butter.

Are you a white meat, dark meat or drumstick person? Dark meat because it’s more moist.

Do you think anyone actually plays the drums with turkey drumsticks? Yes. I know for a fact. My daughter did when she was younger.

If you win the wishbone tug by getting the bigger half, what would you wish for? A pink Mustang.

Approximately how long after Thanksgiving supper do you take a nap? Probably two hours after.

Does turkey always make you tired, or only on Thanksgiving?Always.

Have you ever witnessed or been a part of a Thanksgiving Day disaster? Yes. One year we went to our friend’s house for Thanksgiving. They had a little dog in a crate and when the rest of us were outside, my daughter let the dog out. By the time we came back in, the dog had already eaten most of the turkey. So... we had to go out to eat that night.

Have you ever tried to cook Thanksgiving dinner by yourself, and if so, how did it turn out? Yes, and it turned out awesome. I’m doing it again this Thanksgiving, too.

If you were a Turkey Superhero named Avias Awesomeness, what heroic duties would you accomplish on Thanksgiving? I would give turkey to all the homeless and feed those who don’t have anything.

If you had to fight your arch nemesis, Drumstickula, what cooking utensils would be your weapons of choice?

A hungry pit-bull with spatulas.
