We are not having our big meal until dinner time. I am making some soup for lunch. Dh thinks I am crazy and says “people don’t eat on thanksgiving except for the big meal!” I’m curious what others do. We don’t have any appetizers or other things to munch on like we would have if we went to a big family get together. I think he just expects everyone to starve until dinner so that they are super hungry.
We usually make quiche or regular eggs for breakfast and snack on crackers, cheese, and summer sausage for lunch. I will raid the dinner rolls if I bought extra. I have a pumpkin creme roll in the fridge that I'll get out soon and we'll have a slice between putting the turkey in and prepping the rest of the sides. (We're not eating until 4:30-5)

Normally when we are with family, we would go to grandmas house and have appetizers like veggie tray until the main meal, which was a late lunch. Then snack on appetizers and snacks and desserts all day until it was time for leftovers for dinner.
I had a regular breakfast, Greek yogurt with granola and fruit. We also have appetizers around 1 and eat at 5. If you don’t eat all day your stomach shrinks and you’ll just eat less. There’s also more chances for family squabbles if everyone is around each other on an empty stomach all day long.
We had some eggs and sausage for breakfast. If anyone wants lunch we have a family size caesar salad (from the grocery store deli) and leftover pizza in the fridge and they can help themselves. Dh might have some salad. Dd and I will probably wait, but we do have appetizers ready for before dinner.
When the kids were younger we would make homemade donuts every year (with biscuit dough) and they would watch the parade while we cooked supper. This year, we made bacon, egg, and cheese sandwiches and will have charcuterie and then dinner around 630

We typically snack or have pastries while I cook, but this year it's just three of us instead of the usual 7 or 8, so I made DH an omelet and I had pumpkin pie for breakfast. We'll be having our carry out Thanksgiving turkey dinner from Cracker Barrell around 1 and then again around 7 this year.
Well normally we eat our big thanksgiving dinner at dinner time (7pm) so I usually eat “normal” meals but light and healthy - just like eggs and vegetables for breakfast then maybe some yogurt for lunch. Then I go crazy eating the big dinner
Everyone is on their own at our house. So far (11ish) I think DS is the only one that has eaten anything but that's typical around here. I'll have my usual bowl of chopped vegetables, fruit & nuts after 1.
If we were having people over I put out appetizers and/or a charcuterie & cheese board.
