For me and my Canadian readers, Thanksgiving is quickly approaching. Are you prepared?
I thought it was a brilliant idea when I decided to host Thanksgiving at my house this year. I love having people over to my little abode, and the more the merrier right? Well, surprisingly one of my brothers and his girlfriend confirmed that they would be coming! Awesome news right? Within my excitement about having the gang over, C quickly made me realize that things would be *TIGHT* and that got me second-guessing my decision.
You see, I don’t have a very big house. In total my house is about 1150sq ft. It’s a decent size for me, and will be a decent size for 1, maybe 1 kids. But, it’s just not designed for big family gatherings. My living/dining room are nice and open, however my teeny table only sits 6. We have 11 confirmed guests including me. To top things off, my parents would be bringing their 5 month old golden retriever puppy who will be hyper about the fact that there will be many people, and my two cats around.
So… needless to say, I spoke to my parents and I will now be hosting Thanksgiving at *their* house. lol I will still be completely in charge – something that will be very tough for my mom – but it will be at their house. A house where 11 people can sit comfortably around one table and the puppy will be in the comfort of his own home.
I will be cooking the turkey and stuffing – something I am FAMOUS for in my family (just had to brag there). I will also be cooking some butternut squash, and a pumpkin cheesecake (recipe found here.) It’s going to be a busy few days, but I think it will be all worth it in the end just to get the big group together.
I will definitely take some pictures to share come Monday! 🙂
