Thanksgiving Dinner- 11/25/2015

Set up/Soup Dinner/Nam Chi's BD

Thanksgiving dinner at our house became a tradition a few years ago after we hosted for over 10 years.  Thanksgiving Dinner at our house is a collective effort with each family bringing 2 side dishes so that I can concentrate on Appetizers, Main dishes and dessert.  It is not a lot of work for each family but together we usually end up with about 10 side dishes, a few meat dishes to fill up two buffet table.

Thanksgiving is also a very nice occasion to see of the kids together in one room.
