I am sitting here with my morning coffee relieved to have Thanksgiving behind me with no more lists to pore over and no more last minute runs to the supermarket. Relax time. I hope that everyone enjoyed their holiday and that we all enjoyed our families with all their perfections and imperfections. A sigh of relief that it’s over for another year. As much as I do love doing it , it seemed like I had to get it together in 3 days because I was away till the Sunday before. Somehow you get it all done, it just becomes an obsession. I do love seeing all of those beautiful faces at my table. I am very blessed to still have both my parents with us, and my Mom even brought her delicious cauliflower which there wasn’t a single piece left of . I was happy with all my dishes even though I stress about getting all the food to the table somewhat hot. It all works out in the end and everyone seems to enjoy the food and the day. Too much dessert, next year I swear one dessert and fruit ! Thanks again for everybody’s help with a special shout out to Norma and Allison with whom I couldn’t do this meal without.
My next dinner party isn’t for another 2 weeks so I get a break. I will be back cooking normally this week, whatever that may be.
