And, in the end, everything came together.
I did not keep my natural tendencies to add just one more thing to the menu in check. So, there were three homemade desserts, supplemented by cupcakes from Crumbs. No one complained.
Thanks to a tip from a dear friend on the other side of the world, the turkey was moist.
I kept to my original time line, sort of. We ate late, but we ate well.
There were just enough of us to squeeze around the table ever so tightly. What followed were many toasts and just as many jokes at my expense. I wouldn’t have it any other way.
The menu follows. I’ll be recapping individual recipes in the upcoming weeks. Check the menu planning page for the full accounting.
In the meantime, here are the recipes you can look forward to:
Jared’s Meatball Sliders with grits and spicy tomato sauce
Friendsgiving Cocktails with Cranberry Apple Vodka
Cinnamon Spiced Coffee
