Thanksgiving is over!! All that just for one meal. Next time, we're just getting some Panda Express and serving it buffet style. So much easier.
Actually, we had a great time. Our friends Christa, Jenny, and Asa came over and we ate like kings and queens.
Here's the spread:
The ladies begin the meal:
The dessert table:
The turkey was great. I enjoyed it, but was a bit worried that people weren't into it. But when Heather, who isn't much of a fan of turkey, loved it and couldn't get enough of it, and even had after everyone left and we had cleaned up. That was a sign that the turkey was a hit. The sides were seemed really good. I was a bit nervous that no one liked the food, but everyone seemed to enjoy it all.
The desserts were definitely huge - the marble cheesecake and the peanut butter eyeballs I made are favorites of Christa's, so I couldn't go wrong. Christa's apple pie, despite being a bit liquidy, was a big hit.
I have to pat us on the back for holding, what appears to be, a successful Thanksgiving meal. It was a bit of hard work, but I'd do it again in a heartbeat.
