[misc] Thanksgiving

Thanksgiving was a hit. I cooked all day Wednesday to make what I could ahead of dinner Thursday.

Here is the 20lb turkey the night before:

20 lb  See you in the morning.

I have no pictures from the actual day of Thanksgiving- too busy. Roasted the turkey, made 10 lbs of mashed potatoes, two kind of gravy, stuffing (in the bird and in casserole dishes), peas, roasted carrots, reheated the squash, whipped cream for dessert, shrimp cocktail for appetizer hour... Then it was time to eat!


It was a mish-mash of table linens and plates and a scramble to get enough chairs and silverware but it all worked out. And everyone was gone by about 5pm, which was perfect. I just collapsed on the couch and tried to stay awake for football. Friday was a clean up day and I still had Sat and Sun to relax. I'll be read to host Thanksgiving again in five or so years.
