I always eat breakfast and lunch on thanksgiving. I’m diabetic so I need to keep my blood sugar good. I just had an egg and toast for lunch, nothing too heavy. Dinner will be around 5:30. But Thanksgiving dinner isn’t my favorite meal, so I’m rearely full afterwards. I just put a little bit of everything on my plate.

I always make/bake the dough in a can pillsbury cinnamon rolls on Thanksgiving morning. Although today it was noon-ish when I made them, because I stayed up until 3:30am reading and slept on and off until until 11:00-ish am.
No Thanksgiving gathering today. My Mother made a turkey the other day for us to share, so I have several individual portions of turkey and gravy frozen. I will eat my dinner around 8:00pm
When my parents were alive, we always had Thanksgiving at their house. Dad would make a bunch of little breakfast appetizer-type things like mini quiche, little potato pancakes, fruit, bacon-wrapped dates, etc. If no one was coming early enough for breakfast, there would be a few appetizer things out on the bar to tide you over until dinner. We never had a formal lunch. The main meal would be served either as a late lunch or at normal dinnertime, depending on when family members were able to make it. As our kids grew up, a few of them had jobs that they had to work in the morning so we delayed the meal until normal dinnertime. If not, it was around 2:00 or so.
We always had the big meal around 1-2 in the afternoon growing up. DH doesn’t like having to start things so early in order to eat that early, so we do our big meal at 5:30-6:00. We had pizza for lunch today.
Miracles shouldn’t be Plan A
I’ve got mountains to climb and I don’t need a backpack full of rocks.
I am one of those people who does not understand how anyone, anywhere ever skips a meal on purpose. I remember my parents frequently pulling the "we're going to have a big dinner so we don't need lunch" or "we had a big lunch so we don't need dinner," and I was baffled.
I put out a charcuterie plate for lunch today. I don't really cook, so that's about as involved as I'm getting (my husband does the thanksgiving cooking, other than the amazingly tedious but not-really-cooking task of boiling and peeling chestnuts, which is all on me).
