It is just days away and I am super excited, so get ready for too many posts per day so I can fit in some great recipes!. This year, it will be just be me, my parents, and my little brother (well.... little as in 21...), but I still got to have a huge awesome Thanksgiving meal with my bestest friends in the entire world! We had a feast this past Sunday. Afterwards, we all kind of crawled around the house until our food digested enough to play the craziest game of Loaded Questions that has ever been played: Dead Helen Keller Babies, anyone? I know. That's horrible, but our food was far from horrible or disturbing! I can't remember the last time I ate that much food.
I am pretty sure in the beginning there was 2x the amount of food on this plate.
