Thanksgiving 2012

We have 18 people coming for Thanksgiving, and I'm thrilled! I love the kind of Thanksgiving where you have to move furniture and borrow tables and chairs.

With so many good cooks in the family, I'm only making about half the dishes below--everyone is bringing something. My mom is even roasting a second turkey.

I'm also starting a new tradition: Pie-apalooza. I read on Slate about a woman who makes approximately one pie per guest, and I couldn't get it out of my mind. My side of the family loves pie, but we don't have it as often as other desserts. I'm not planning a 1:1 ratio of pies, but we'll have more than usual and maybe add a pie each year from now on.

Hi! I understand this is sort of off-topic however I had to ask.

Does managing a well-established blog such as yours require a large amount of work?

I'm brand new to blogging but I do write in my journal on a daily basis. I'd like
to start a blog so I can easily share my personal experience
and views online. Please let me know if you have any recommendations or tips
for brand new aspiring bloggers. Appreciate it!

I have been browsing on-line greater than 3 hours nowadays, but I never discovered any interesting article like yours.
It is lovely value sufficient for me. In my opinion, if all web owners and bloggers made
good content as you probably did, the internet can be a lot more helpful than ever before.

Feel free to surf to my weblog; great post to read
