Shortly we'll be off to my mother-in-law's house for Thanksgiving dinner. Should be great fun - 15 people, all friends and family, and Gordon and I know everyone. The family is already 10 people, and some friends of ours who we asked to join us for the holiday.
My MIL does most of the work, but gives out assignments to people to bring something. I'm bringing garlic mashed sweet potatoes, which I volunteered for since it guarantees me something I can eat aside from the turkey. I think there will be plenty for everyone to eat today - my MIL is very aware of everyone's food issues (both my sisters-in-law have dietary restrictions, too), and she called here yesterday asking what nuts I do and don't eat. (Pecans in the stuffing, yay!) And I know there is flourless chocolate cake, too....
It will be a wonderful evening and Gordon and I are both looking forward to it.
Hope your Thanksgiving is wonderful, too.
