I mentioned with regard to knitting that sometimes I can get in over my head. This does not only happen with arts and crafts.
Last week we decided to invite people to celebrate Thanksgiving at our apartment, some Americans and Canadians, and some Europeans who have never celebrated this holiday before. (Some of whom are quite excited, making me feel like we have a lot to live up to!) We didn’t know how many people would say yes, but it’s looking now like we’ll have in the vicinity of twenty people here.
If there were ever an appropriate time (and I am not saying there is) for the acronym LOL, I think this is it, because I cannot stop laughing while I am typing this. I am so excited to have all our new friends over, and excited by the challenge of drawing up a food battle plan, including a lot of dishes that can be made the day before.
What are your favorite make-ahead recipes for a holiday gathering? Any good tips? How much stuff CAN you put in the oven at once?
And did I mention we only have four chairs right now? Luckily, that should be changing tomorrow….
