Last year, my Thanksgiving was filled with detailed schedules, lists and spreadsheets. It was my first time in the kitchen on Thanksgiving and I was cooking for 14!
This year, I'll be a hostess again, but for half the number of people. I'm cooking less (but still should be plenty!) and stressing less. Of course I've planned my menu and now I'm making sure none of my serving bowls/baking dishes will be expected to do double-duty. I've already gotten a head start chopping and slicing some of the pre-Thanksgiving stuff.
Now I just have to write the left-right Thanksgiving story Camp Lawrence style to find out who will wash the dishes!
