My absolute favorite holiday is Thanksgiving. Obviously, I’m very thankful for my family, but really it’s all about the food for me; the stuffing, hot yeast rolls, and Grandma Emma’s pumpkin pie.
This year I’m hosting my husband’s family - all 15 of them. I look forward to sharing my journey with you over the next two weeks. Hopefully I”ll have a few good tips along the way to share with you. And fire away with your best tips, we can always learn from each other.
My guests are arriving the night before so I want to be prepped and ready to go as far in advance as possible. Here is my plan.
