What is the mood like in your house on Thanksgiving morning? Are you a sit around in your jammies, drinking coffee and watching the Macy's Day parade all morning kind of family? Or are you a start the cooking and dinner preparations at the crack of dawn kind of family?
Around the Davis house, it's a little cooking, a little parade watching and a whole lot of coffee. Ahhhh, I LOVE Thanksgiving. The kids running around the house, far too many cooks in the kitchen bumping into each other and laughter all around.
If your house is a happy, busy bed of chaos on Thanksgiving morning, you can still serve a great breakfast to your family. The key is to make it the night before Thanksgiving so all you have to do is throw it in the oven in the morning.
