As I mentioned yesterday, Brian and I are hosting Thanksgiving this year. That’s right, in just two weeks, my parents, Brian’s parents, and Brian’s brother are all eating a meal I will prepare in my kitchen and serve in my dining room. This is terrifies me and elates me all at the same time.
I’m nervous because:
1) we only have four chairs
2) I’ve never made a turkey before and
3) there is a chance no matter what I make, I won’t live up to my own ridiculously high standards for a Thanksgiving meal.
However, the thing that is keeping me going is the fact that my whole family will be here and I’m pretty sure they’ll love me even if I totally mess up Thanksgiving (I mean, at least it’s not Christmas).
So, in preparation for the big day, I’m going to be testing recipes to decide which are going to make an appearance on my Thanksgiving table. Thankfully, I have a rough idea of the menu I want:
Since hosting Thanksgiving is a pretty grown up thing to do, I think it totally makes sense for me to subject all of you , my dear readers, to the various recipes I attempt. Though, just to warn you, I’m not planning to make a turkey before the big day (I like to live dangerously).
Hope you enjoy!
