Sometimes we go to a relative's for Thanksgiving, sometimes we host here, and sometimes it's just dh, ds, and me. This year it was just ds and me. Dh is working on the other side of the country and had to work Friday, so no point in flying home for one day. SO. Even though it was just two of us, I prepared the same things I always do: antipasto plate for snacking, 20lb turkey, mashed potatoes, gravy, two kinds of stuffing, corn, two kinds of cranberry sauce, sweet potato and green bean casseroles, plus rolls and several desserts. (We LOVE Thanksgiving dinner!) I was cooking all day. However, I was not exhausted and I was not stressed in the least, it was great. Sadly, it was because dh wasn't here. He's so loud, always talking and has the tv blaring. It wasn't the same without him here for the holiday, but it was a nice rest.
