I fell (quickly) into a tryptophan induced sleep last night, exhausted but oh-so-thankful for the day. It was full of friends, fun, laughter, games and good food.
We had a slight crisis about 10:30 a.m. upon realizing that the turkey (which had been in the fridge since Monday morning) was a little frozen inside. Some googling and a cold water bath helped with that. It meant we ate around 3:45 instead of 3:00, but thankfully, our guests didn't mind. We passed the time playing Ticket to Ride and preparing the other food. The other dishes turned out SO well--much to my joy and relief. (Note to self: make more gravy and potatoes next year. It's impossible to have too much.)
After dinner, more games followed (finishing Ticket to Ride and playing Dominoes) before diving up leftovers and bidding our farewells.
