Trade Thanksgiving lunch for brunch?
I've always split my Thanksgiving between the two sides of my family; spending the first half of the day with my mom's side and the second half with my dad's.
We've always started early; traveling to a relative's house where we cook, watch some football and have Thanksgiving dinner around 1 p.m. Then, at around 3 p.m. my sisters and I hop back in the car and head back to Milwaukee to do it all over again.
Don't get me wrong, two Thanksgiving dinners in one day isn't all that bad. I don't even try to restrain myself at the first meal to save room for the second; all in all the day includes eating tons of turkey, mashed potatoes and sweet potato pie.
But this year, it's going to be different.
Because my cousins, aunts and uncles are either traveling away or not traveling home, we've been left without an extended family Thanksgiving on my mom's side this year.
So, to mix it up, we've decided to do something different. Instead of the normal Thanksgiving fare, I've decided to make Thanksgiving brunch. And after careful thought and consideration, here's a list of menu replacements to turn your holiday lunch into brunch.

Maureen, based on another blog you wrote, I have come to the conclusion that you really love brunch.
What time should I join you and at what address?
If you are going to have brunch, you at least need an excuse to include bacon! I suggest forming the bacon in the shape of a turkey...then everyone will be happy.
