Alrighty! Finally, it's the anticipated rundown of the Thanksgiving festivities! This year, we have so very much to be thankful for. Mr. Tucker's health is at the top of my list. He gave us all such a scare and I am so thankful that he's doing well. Being that he hasn't learned to be a good traveler, yet, we decided to stay home and host Thanksgiving here for everyone that we knew that had nowhere else to go. We had Rugby's friend Brandon and his family (3), Hallie and Joyce from next door (2), Tim's grandparents (2), Adam and Kelly (2), Adam's dad, Leroy (1), Kelly's sister, her boyfriend and her son (3), plus the six of us. Are you counting? That makes 19!
Here's the menu:
25#'s of turkey
*green bean casserole
*mashed potatoes (10#'s!)
*apple scented venison roast, shaved thin
squash with nutmeg, butter and brown sugar
rolls Grandma Bosman made
jello salad Grandma Bosman made
6 dozen deviled eggs
And who could forget dessert??
2 pumpkin fluff pies
1 strawberry rhubarb pie
1 FABULOUS peanut butter cheesecake with chocolate ganache (2 tries to get that right since the first batch of chocolate was bad. Ugh!)
Here's seating: (Notice the Indian Corn....Rugby thought we needed to have some ;) )
Beverage table waiting for guests to arrive to set more things out....
For supper, we had rolls with butter and honey, cocktail weiners with BBQ sauce, cheese and venison sausage, pickles, olives, leftover deviled eggs (there were only 8 left that I threw away that night from 6 dozen!), fiesta dip and chips. YUM YUM!
We had such a nice day visiting with everyone. Hopefully it'll work out to do it again another time. My mom suggested a Christmas open house, so we'll see if I get on top of that or not....
