This isn't a tip, just sharing our annual Thanksgiving day. We always go to my cousin's house in Columbus, and (Bless her) she ends up with a minimum of 35 people. She is a VERY busy doctor, but manages to make this wonderful homemade turkey dinner with all the trimmings.
We all bring a dish or two, and there are lots of hands to help before and after, but the majority of the work is on her. Her husband always plays the piano, and it is not a complete day without the Snoopy Christmas piano solo.
We have a great aunt who is a very strict vegetarian, and is WAY up in years. She is quite eccentric and just makes the whole day. We have so very much to be thankful for this year, especially. This wonderful family is not the least of it.
