I hope everyone had a great day surrounded by people you love! We sure did! J & I hosted Thanksgiving at our house this year. It included 6 people, 2 dogs and 1 20lb turkey. I have to admit that I had a bit of anxiety getting ready to host what I considered our first adult Thanksgiving, but everything turned out beautifully.
J and I really tag teamed dinner by splitting up the shopping, cleaning and food prep. We asked our guests to bring a side or two and that really helped take the pressure off! I seriously don't know how people cook an entire Thanksgiving dinner with one stove and oven.
Dinner was great and the company was fabulous. We had a ton of pre-dinner munchies to hold us over until everything was ready to go. I love that we're starting new traditions and are looking forward to hosting again next year! We may even decided to do the whole dinner next year, too! On one stove...
