Thanksgiving 2015

Thanksgiving 2015

Not many people can say they cooked a forking 500 turkey dinners all by themselves. But that was a long time ago. I think I worked harder on serving just 10 people than the 500 I did once. This year I cooked for only 10 people but made enough food for maybe 20. I prepared over 20 items. My husband prepared the mashed potatoes.  I know I didn’t have to prepare so many different dishes but I wanted too. To me Thanksgiving is an abundance of turkey, stuffing and potatoes that you share with who ever you forking can so you should offer all you can of those items and then some. Here’s what I forking served this year.
