Well folks I survived the 14 hours of cooking yesterday and the HUGE plate of delicious food! With 24 items on the menu - a brunch seating, dinner seating, and what was suppose to be a dessert seating... I stay suppose to be, because we were all quite full and most of us postponed dessert to today - our Thanksgiving Numero 2.
Luckily I had lots of help/assistance/sous-chefs, so of course I was plenty thankful for that...otherwise who knows how many hours more it could've taken me.
I call today Thanksgiving Numero 2 because I make sooooooo much food that we don't only have left overs today and over the weekend, but we have at least one full 2nd meal out of all the cooking that I did.
Seriously if you can imagine our entire kitchen was covered in food - our kitchen becomes like a restaurant with the amount of prepping & cooking that is done for the big day.
We had a lovely dinner with 13 of us and it was the first Thanksgiving in many years that my brother Michael joined us for. Lots of stories, laughs and memories were shared over the big meal.
I really didn't have much time to snap away and take many pictures -
