Thanksgiving was an all hands on deck affair this year. My mom's legacy has been her thanksgiving feasts. She usually plans for months, shops for weeks, and cooks for days. This year was no different, except that we acted as her minions, doing the potato peeling, running to the store, etc. Aunt Linda has been performing heroic and selfless acts of cleaning on our household, and so we were spared nearly all cleaning! The dinner turned out wonderful- my only regret is not tying people to their seats. You prep & cook for hours....and the meal is eaten in ten minutes. 15 if someone hides the gravy boat for about 4.5 minutes. Ah well- if they ate it fast it must have been good, right!!?
