We had a wonderful Thanksgiving dinner at our house this year. We celebrated and feasted with family and some very dear friends!
And....the festivities all took place in our master bedroom. A.K.A., our ongoing addition project. One day, in the future as we are enjoying our new master suite, it will be funny and strange to think of all the entertaining we have done in that room. "oh, the parties we have had in here...."
Last year my parents and brother joined us for Thanksgiving, we sat in the addition and said "well, it sure is nice to use this area one more time before it is finished! Next year we will have a real dining room to sit in!"
But it all worked out for the best. We had a total of 16 people this year and would have been hard pressed to fit anywhere else in the house! I did most of the cooking, it was a lot of work but also very fun to fix a feast. Thanksgiving is a meal that I want to have many side dishes, that only works if you are cooking for a crowd.

The food was delicious and plentiful but the company and conversation was amazing. There were lots of laughs but also lots of deep thought provoking conversation too. It was a perfect Thanksgiving for me!
'til next time...
