Friday Fun...Now I Know How a Turkey Feels

I’m Stuffed


Most of the food has been packaged and sent home with family and friends. Heck, we had so much food that wasn’t eaten,  I was tempted to take some over to our neighbors.

And then I remembered that both of my neighbors on either side of us were out of town and my neighbor across the street had his own gathering, that by the way, he could not enjoy because he had a detached retina and had surgery yesterday. 


So while his guests and family dined on turkey etc, my Jerry spent Thanksgiving in his bedroom. Don’t feel too sorry for him, though, he was happily watching football. 


We had about 32 for Thanksgiving. It was so good to have the whole family there. No discussion of politics was allowed (by me) and everyone had a good time. 


I hope that everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving...spending it however you wanted...eating whatever you wished...and being with whomever you cared about.

Hi Kathy - so glad I did not overeat.  We had a great time together at our daughter's In Laws house in New Hope Pennsylvania.  There were 17 of us including 5 boys under 6.

Goodness Kathy, that is a HUGE gathering.  I wouldn't even have room for that many for dinner.  Glad you all had enough to eat, and enjoyed the day!

Hello Kathy - Thirty Two!  Yikes - you might be feeling a bit stuffed but like a turkey you might be a little relieved that Thanksgiving Day is over for another year.  Of course, there's always leftovers.   Continue to enjoy the feasting this weekend - football and the food.

Good morning Kathy,

What a great feast you had!  The most I ever head was 24 for Thanksgiving.  We had a quiet dinner for two, no turkey!  Glad you had a wonderful feast. A

Good morning, Kathy.
I am so envious of someone who can prepare for 32 people. I know there is a lot more to having 32 people over than cooking for them.  Kudos!

Hello Kathy,  We ended up going from 18 to 30 people but the extra people had food that this were going have in their cabins.  We made lots of great new friends

My hosts for Thanksgiving dinner had more leftover food than what was eaten. It was a wonderful gathering of 21 people.  By the looks of the spread on the table you certainly did have a lot of food.

Hi Kathy Streib - I cooked for at least 10 but only had 4 adults!  But we did have 3 pies for 4 adults.  It looks like you had a feast.  How wonderful.  If we are going to overindulge, yesterday should be the day...and today, as well as the entire weekend! Happy Friday.

Kathy so happy that we all were able to spend the Holiday with our family and friends.  You had a big crowd!  Beats ours by a long shot this year.  We had a lovely, relaxing day and you're right - too much food.  Most our our guests went back for seconds and still found room for desert later!

I also felt way too stuffed after our meal on Thursday. We had a much smaller group, but still fun. Fortunately, we also left politics off the table.
