My Thanksgiving Dinner


 Hello everyone,

We celebrated our Thanksgiving on Oct 11, we had 20 family members come in from out of town and stay the weekend.  I did my best to prep ahead of time since I like to enjoy my company and not be stuck in the kitchen all day.  The day before I made a Tiramisu cake, peeled and diced, beets, butternut squash, 10 lbs of potaotes, celery sticks, cauliflower.

  2. Hey Anna,

    How are you? Glad you like the posts 🙂
    I deboned it myself, it took a little over an hour to remove the bones, since the bones are a lot tougher than chicken. Then I had to prepare the huge about of stuffing the go into the bird and then sew it all shut. 🙂
    Hope all is well, see you soon 🙂
