Well, even though I would consider my Thanksgiving a success and my gravy was the best I've ever made, I have decided that next year...I'm going simpler.
I tried to make way too many dishes, missed out on more family time, and acted noticeably stressed out (apparently). So next year, I've decided that it's 3-4 side dishes and 1 pie and that's it.
Everyone is getting assigned a side dish and I'm making turkey, gravy, and the pie.
We have all agreed that it would be more fun to spend time together and have fewer choices of food. We always make too much anyways.
Lesson learned this year, for sure!
Looking forward to Christmas a little early this year.
