Thanksgiving Post Mortem

After shopping, cooking and cleaning for 17 people this Thanksgiving, I’ve actually learned  a few things:
1. You don’t need to do it all. Family will help if you ask.
2. Leftovers are better in concept than reality.
3. Freeze the carcass. Make yummy soup some cold winter weekend. You’ve done enough.
4. Despite days & hours of prep, the eating part still takes only an hour.
5. I’m grateful I still have the energy for this and also grateful that a new generation will be cooking Thanksgiving in the future. Hopefully, they will also agree that real plates are better than paper.
