Merry Thanksgiving and Happy Christmas Decorating
For about the last 14 years my whole family would rent a building for Thanksgiving and have a huge potluck with about 40-50 people. The amount of food was nothing short of what you would see at a buffet restaurant, there were 6 different stuffings to argue over which one is best, turkey, ham, veggies, casseroles, deviled eggs, dumplings, breads, sweet potatoes, mashed potatoes, roasted potatoes, cheesy potatoes; any potatoes you could dream up! Following of course there was a table solely for pies and cakes. I recall being a child and hearing my grandmother get up at 5 in the morning each Thanksgiving to finish taking the meat off the turkey, make the dressing, potatoes, gravy, and pies. She was the “executive chef” of the day after all, and still is. This Thanksgiving it will only be my immediate family and that’s ok. My grandma told me I can bring something this year….finally. Butternut Squash Risotto will make a delicious side. Go to mycookingodyssey.wordpress.com for that recipe. What are you all taking to Thanksgiving?
Now for the holiday decoration porn. I know that’s what you came for. I had a light dilemma this year. Only 2 of my 6 strands of christmas lights worked : ( This year my holiday tree theme is (yes, I have so many Christmas decorations I seperate them into themes) Winter Wonderland.
