Turkey Day Troubleshooting

It’s the eve of my favorite Holiday, and I’ve got more to be thankful for this year than any other. I’ve just returned from the most incredible honeymoon in the history of honeymoons, which was preceded by the most incredible wedding in the history of weddings (more on those later). Forgive the cliche, but I have married the man of my dreams, and I’m over the moon. I am one lucky lady. 

Unfortunately, the preparation for these aforementioned amazing events took me away from blogging here for a bit. Now that I’m back, I hope you’ll find my posts fun and helpful. Please continue to share feedback in the comments section – let me know what you like, what you don’t, and what questions you’d like answered. 

So to start, anyone out there having a last minute Turkey Day Crisis? Share with us here and I’ll do my best to help you troubleshoot. Perhaps you darling readers can also come to each other’s rescue!

Tomorrow morning we’re running in a 5K for our local chapter of United Way, and then I’ll be cooking with my mother at her house for about 7 straight hours. After that, we feast! 

I’ll check back here periodically throughout the day, so share your dilemmas, and I promise to chime in. 

Remember, even if the dog eats your Turkey (which is what you tell your guests should you accidentally overcook it), you’ll have the best holiday ever if you keep your focus where it belongs: on enjoying yourself and the time spent with family and friends. 

And finally, to get you in the spirit, here are some cocktail napkins I had customized for last year’s Thanksgiving Extravaganza – they really captured the sentiment of the day…
