Our Thanksgiving 2011

The thing about my family knowing that cooking isn't my strong suit is that they come to my rescue (or theirs). After all, Thanksgiving can be a big undertaking for a non-cook. My sister and mother in law did most of the cooking. Let me rephrase, they DID the cooking. Actually, everyone in the family gave a helping hand.

Even though I cut up a couple of potatoes, my main jobs were to keep the sink clean, to make sure the football game stayed on, to keep the wine flowing, and to keep hoodlums off the turkey.

I think the perfect recipe for our laid-back Thanksgiving day was keeping everything simple. We didn't have a big crowd but everyone had a task, we didn't go crazy making tons of side dishes, and I kept the wine flowing.

Up next, Christmas! I'm so ahead of the game this year. Most of our decorations are already up!!

How are your coming along getting ready for the upcoming holidays?

sounds a lot like my Thanksgiving..football, flowing wine...except I did the cooking!!! My mom did help a bit. We had a great time, but silly me took zero pictures. And, I am so not ready for Christmas...my Halloween decorations are still up! UGH.

That turkey looks yummy! My hubby wanted to fry one this year, but it didn't happen. I'm impressed you are all decorated...I still have pumpkins on my front porch:)

Your job was most important. The wine flowing is high up on my list. Turkey look delicious. :)
