    It is a wonderful community of friends, most of whom we never met.

I ordered enough so I have leftovers all weekend.

    What am I thankful for this year? One of them is having this great community of friends who all share a love of our Happy Island. Wishing you all a wonderful holiday!

My menu/plans consist of: shrimp cocktail, buffalo chicken dip, a charcuterie board and some libations (egg nog, Bloody Marys, etc.) for starters. We will, of course, be watching the Macy's parade and then the Westminster Dog Show for a bit. I will then be making a lamb leg, roasted potatoes, green beans, Hawaiian rolls and a few other things for our main meal around 1:30pm because my husband has to work at 3pm. Dessert will be store bought pecan and pumpkin pies because I am lame.

    For those of you in Aruba during Thanksgiving, I will toast you with some Balashi from here. Believe it or not, I still have a few left! Not for long!!!

    Happy Thanksgiving to everyone!!
    Love it that you're doing a leg of lamb!
    A little nonsense now and then is relished by the best of men!

    It's my favorite holiday of the year. We have 11 people for sure and a couple of others may stop by. I smoked a couple of pounds of bacon yesterday to use in devilled eggs and my jalapeno ranch cheeseball and we made the cranberry sauce. We'll be dry brining the turkey and prepping several dishes today including sweet potato, green bean, and Brussels sprouts and cauliflower casseroles. Tomorrow everything gets cooked and the mashed potatoes and ham will be smoked. Our future daughter in law is bringing desserts including cheesecake and apple pie to go along with the pumpkin and pecan pies we are making. We have several (10+) bottles of champagne for our mimosa bar with apple cider, OJ, cranberry, and pineapple juices and silver and gold sanding sugar for the rims. Looking forward to family, food and fun.

    Happy Thanksgiving everyone!
