Thorsday Thanksgiving Food Review

Everyone else in the world has forgotten Thanksgiving already, and I'm just looking at my pictures now.

Today I bring you the food:

Those of us who feed massive numbers of large menfolk require two turkeys (total weight: 48 pounds).  Two carvers is the most efficient way to deal with said turkeys.



One of my guests saw fit to photograph my veggies while they were cooking.  There's no real point to this picture, except to show you why I ran 6 dishwasher loads of dishes on Thursday.

Here's the table, while people were trying to decide where to sit.  The point, of course, was the food.



And dessert, or most of it, anyway.  There's a pie missing from this picture.  But Andrea, Greg's friend, who has never been here before, said my carrot cake was the best she's ever had.  And she went on to explain that she is Italian, and she really knows carrot cake.  I just love such a compliment!

Happy Thorsday, everyone!

Tomorrow, I'll give you random pictures of people at Thanksgiving.  Really, I will.

Looks like quite a feast! I can't begin to imagine the dishes!! My daughter had Thanksgiving at her house - her first!

We did two loads in the dishwasher that day. Pots and pans take up so much room.

And here I am "whining" about one 22 pound turkey. That is certainly one huge feast Marjie!!! I'm sure everyone was more than stuffed!
