Jordan and I cooked a turkey and ham dinner for 20(ish) people last night. We started everything at 11am and people were in my house until about 1am. Oy. Unfortunately I was on call and only spent about 30 minutes at my house all night. Way too many medevacs and one town call. This is the last time I host a meal/party when I’m working. I hated not being home with all these people over (and the new puppy in the house). It kind of sucked because despite my pleads people still fed Paisley A TON of turkey and ham and all the sides which led to her getting quite sick later in the night. Poor puppy girl. From what I hear it was a great party and a successful meal. I snapped some pictures of the prep and some parts of the meal, but since I wasn’t home as of the moment the turkey came out of the oven there isn’t much after that. So here’s pictures of the very first thanksgiving I’ve thrown on my own ! 🙂
