The rest of the country may be celebrating the national day of tryptophan and thanks on Thursday, but my holiday was yesterday.  I spent my Sunday (and Saturday) cooking Thanksgiving dinner for 50-60 people.  Scout's honor.  

I have pictures to prove it.

This is Kenneth.  He kisses me on the cheek every time he sees me.  Mmhmm.

"I better get a husband out of this."

Stephanie, my right hand woman.  Seriously, the best kitchen help a girl could wish for.

This is Cubbie.  I just... There are no words.

A man and his bird.  Jason cooked the two 20-lb. turkeys at two different houses and kicked some serious turkey tail.  Those babies were deelish.

Kudos to the turkey master.

The spread.  Ie: five heads of lettuce, forty pounds of turkey, 20 pounds of potatoes, ten pounds of corn, three pounds of butter, sweet potatoes, stuffing, 100 rolls, half a gallon of gravy, and TONS of love.

This lights my heart up. And then reminds me of all the dishes I have sitting in my sink.

Happy Thanksgiving.

You're gorgeous. You cook (and bake). You're generous AND you do the dishes? How you don't have a line of potential husbands is beyond me. Maybe there is some sort of super natural husband black hole in your part of LA. That's the only explaination.

You're such a good friend and sweet woman! I wish I could have been there.

God Bless you! Cooking for 10 is hard work - what you did is considered, in some parts, a MIRACLE!
Happy Thanksgiving!

How fun this looked. Just one year I'd like to get out of the same rut with the family. I know they would freak out if I tried....
