This will be the first thanksgiving that we are hosting. My parents, my in-laws, my sister-in-laws boyfriends parents. All together we will have 16 people. Yes you read that right. 16 people!
Now, I have cooked for over 60 people before, but for some reason 16 people is making me nervous. I think it is because Thanksgiving and I don't usually get along. I have had a long run of very poor to mediocre Thanksgivings. Never anything too bad, just not wonderful.
Partly, it is because I don't like big gatherings. Believe it or not I am actually a shy person. I don't like being the center of attention. I also get really anxious when I am big groups for a long time. It should be better this year, because I will hosting.
I know that may seem strange, but the host part is better for me. I am able to concentrate on making everything perfect and I don't have to be the center of attention because everyone leaves you alone to cook. :)
Speaking of cooking. What is on your menu this year?
This is ours:
- sweet potato casserole
- mashed potato
- green bean casserole
- creamed corn
- cranberry relish
- can o cranberry
- deviled eggs
- vegetable platter
Am I missing anything that would make this an epic Thanksgiving. I can tell u mine wouldn't be decorated like the above pictures, but I can dream.
