We hosted Thanksgiving at our house this year, and we had a pretty good sized crew. Since some of the folks weren't arriving until late Thursday night or Friday morning, we shifted the big meal to Friday and took the opportunity to do some advance cooking the day before. We cooked TWO turkeys on Thursday — one right after the other. That left the oven available for everything else on the day of the meal, and they still tasted great reheated for the meal on Friday. (And you can't have too much leftover turkey, right? Turkey and Sweet Potato Hash!)
Oskar napped through the entire meal, giving us an infant-free dining experience, something Corinne really appreciates!
The rest of the weekend was relaxing. Puzzles are often a part of our holiday get togethers with Corinne's family.
Anders re-discovered puzzles this weekend, too! He hadn't done any puzzles in a couple of years and had several that he had never attempted, but over the weekend he built every one of his jigsaw puzzles. He said he had thought puzzles were boring without realizing that you just go up a level in difficulty.
