For our 11 1/2 readers and one subscriber (thanks Ryan) we just knew you couldn’t wait until tomorrow to learn our Thanksgiving plans…well, we are hosting and cooking for 12 people (oddly enough half of whom are our loyal readers).

We started cooking tonight and we will be up early again tomorrow morning to get going. Here is the menu, check in tomorrow to learn about any disasters…and if you were here to experience the disasters, well then screw you for rubbing it in!

    Hey, you forgot to add my jello, raspberry, sour cream, cream cheese and marshmellow concoction to your list of Thanksgiving delights, a recipe I got almost 15 years ago from Sandy Nolan and have been making every year since.
