yummy food, cute place settings...
I have been married for 5 years and I have never had to make a Thanksgiving dinner...until this year. I was excited and a little apprehensive. I mean, it sounds so complex! I called my Auntie while looking at turkeys-what do I know about them?! I ended up with a 13.80 pound turkey for 3 people( I was planning on 10)! We will have left overs for days, but at least there wasn't a lot of pressure. It was definitely an experience. My husband was laughing at me because I am a by the recipe kind of girl. If the recipe doesn't call for it, then it doesn't get added. He thought it was hilarious that Thanksgiving was the day I decided to fly by the seat of my pants and just wing it. He asked me if I knew what I was doing with the turkey and I simply replied, "nope." I just tried what made sense in my head...and it worked out just fine! :)
