Guessing that you can figure out which was the "before" and what was the "after", I won't elaborate. What I will say is that Thanksgiving 2021 was so much fun this year! I really tried to plan ahead to make it less work for myself the day of. All in all, it was definitely time well-spent. There's just not enough room on the table for food which simply means everyone takes their dinner plate from their traditional place setting, heads into the kitchen and proceeds to fill 'er up with turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes, turnips, corn, green bean casserole, biscuits, pickled beets and onions, cranberry sauce, sweet potato casserole and an amazing tossed salad with pecans and cranberries made by my DIL each year. They take what they want, don't have to pass things around...it's so much easier. Desserts included cheesecake (store bought), pumpkin pie, chocolate pumpkin swirl pound cake, pistachio surprise, homemade "Fall motif"
