I like this part. This part is good.
I'm doing the sweet potatoes in a crock pot this year, because the bird is big. We'll see how that turns out. In a few hours, I'll open it up to see how it's doing and put in the spices and sugar. We're expecting a total of 14, and guests are supplying cranberry sauce, pumpkin pies, mashed, rolls and other odds and ends.
Whether your day is intimate (I'm thinking of you, Priestess!) or chaotic, I hope you survive it and any particularly memorable arguments are with kin that are so annoying you'd just as soon not talk to them for a while anyway. May the food be tasty and the weather and other circumstances permit a walk afterwards (or a nice lie down in a recliner in front of a game, if that is your preference).
