Cheers, y’all. Thanksgiving came and went and I’m still not even sure what really happened. The seven bottles of wine from Trader Joe’s we took down - blessed - may be responsible for that but YOTO (you only Thanksgiving once).
Living so far from family, holidays are obviously a challenge. While our hearts always want to be home, sometimes a trip up north just isn’t in the cards. So when we half jokingly, half really seriously invited the fam down to SC for Turkey Day, we didn’t *actually* think anyone would show up...
...until mom, dad, grandma and grandpa RSVP’d yes and sent us on a mad hunt to host our very first holiday at home.
I think wholeheartedly we can check this one off as a success but one look at my search history from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. would have you thinking otherwise. They’re all nothing short of hilarious, real and completely crucial to us being able to serve cooked food with good wine on a well manicured table. Read on for the real gems from Thursday.
How long do you cook a turkey?
What temperature should a turkey be when it’s done?
How do you fold a napkin?
How do you set a table?
Do pies always have to be refrigerated?
How do you clean silver?
Do gourds die?
Can you speed up cooking stuffing in a crock pot?
What type of music do you play at Thanksgiving dinner?
Tell me how your Thanksgiving went, horror stories and all, @kelseyjoynelson!
