As we moved into the new home, we wanted to host Thanksgiving for our extended family this year. We invited both sets of grandparents, my sister and her family, my brother-in-law Robbie’s parents, Robbie’s sister and her family. We had much to do, and lot of people coming over, but we were up for the challenge. We needed to get the entire house cleaned up, the new TV set and Tivo set up, the new TV stand put together, the turkey cooked, the sides cooked, etc, etc. A lot to do. If we had more time between work and all, but somehow we did it. We finished cleaning up around 2 pm, which was basically when everyone was showing up!
On the menu for this grand Thanksgiving meal?
- one 20 lb turkey
- one spiral ham
- bread stuffing
- green beans and bacon
- roasted brussell sprouts and bacon
- mashed potatoes
- carrot souffle
- cranberry relish
- homemade rolls
- flan, apple pie, and pumpkin pie
I think that’s everything. Oh yeah, and lots of libations.
Good Thanksgiving day, good food, and lots of family to spend it with.
