On Thursday, Hoda hosted the parade with his co-hosts, Savannah Guthrie and Dylan Dreyer.

That night, she spent time with her family and showed off her yummy dinner.

The TODAY host said she was thankful to have spent the holiday together.

“Super yummy Thanksgiving Day dinner courtesy of my sister-in-law colleen! Thankful for family…” Hoda captioned the post, along with a heart emoji.

In her post, the mother-of-two shared two photos.

One was of the food that was cooked, which included carrots, mashed potatoes, green beans, gravy, and more.

The second featured Hoda, her kids, and her extended family sitting around the dinner table.

The children sat at a separate small table, right next to the main table.


Hoda, Savannah, and the other main hosts did not appear on TODAY on Friday.

Instead, Peter Alexander and Kristen Welker sat behind the desk.

Peter and Kristen are the NBC News Chief White House Correspondents and the weekend anchors for TODAY.

Along with reporting the news on Friday, they wore Vikings hats to celebrate the Eagles vs. Vikings game.

They also celebrated 60 years of St. Jude with Marlo Thomas and talked about shopping hacks for Black Friday.

Despite the main hosts being absent from the morning show, Dylan, Craig Melvin, and Sheinelle Jones all hosted the third hour of TODAY.

Al Roker was still out after recovering from complications from blood clots.


Hoda and Savannah updated fans about Al’s condition live on air.

During the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade, the meteorologist stayed home to continue his recovery.

While reporting on the day’s festivities, the hosts gave a shoutout to their colleague live on air.

“For the past 27 parades, at this moment, Savannah, we would turn to Al Roker, who’s our Today Show colleague and our best pal,” Hoda reflected on her co-host.

The pair then gave viewers an update on how Al’s been feeling since he was hospitalized.

“But as a lot of you have heard, Al’s recovering, and he’s recovering very well from a recent medical issue. We just want to say we love you, Al. Wonder if you’re watching, but we wish you a full recovery,” she continued.

Savannah chimed in with a sweet message for the Today Show veteran: “We love you, Al. We’ll see you next year.”

In the meantime, NBC news correspondent Kristen Dahlgren filled in for Al on the parade route.

Fans were unsure if the 68-year-old would be in front of the camera Thanksgiving morning as Today Show bosses hadn’t confirmed his appearance.
