30 Days of Thanks
Day 24 - I am thankful that our All Day Thanksgiving Extravaganza went off without a hitch. Minus the whole not having green beans thing.
We hosted both sides of the family for turkey day. The first turkey went into the turkey roaster at 7:30 am and the second turkey came out at 6 pm. We did a potluck for lunch and everyone brought dishes. Everything was delish. It was nice having the families over. It was one big family filled day!
For dinner I was a bit worried about being able to make side dishes with that whole hand thing. So I went the heat and serve route via Costco. The Sage and Sausage Stuffing was awesome. So was the Creme Fresh Mash Potatoes and the Sweet Potatoes. I wasn't shocked that we hardly had any left overs.
I was surprised that we had turkey leftover. I bought two 17lb birds and still had a bunch of left over.
The only problem we had that evening besides not having enough forks was the missing green beans. I could have sworn that I had green beans in the freezer. If I was a betting person I would have bet on it. But when I want to look for them to make the ever famous Green Bean Casserole, they were gone! We will just call it The Great Green Bean Mystery of 2011.
