My daughter Kendall and her friends (high school seniors) started a pretty cool tradition last year; they all work together to prepare a holiday meal.
Tonight, they made an early-Thanksgiving meal, at our house.
At first, she was a little daunted by her first Thanksgiving turkey.
As a newb myself, I was mightily impressed by her bravery.
With a little help from the Butterball Hotline, though, she was off and running.
They set a beautiful table
and added a few extra touches
I didn't take a close-up of their plates full, but I'm sure you can imagine what a plate of turkey, mashed potatoes, stuffing, corn, rolls, and Berry Mallow Bake looks like.
They had a wonderful meal.
I'll bet you're wondering who cleaned up, and you might be surprised by the answer.
These young men did all of the dishes, and it was their idea.
These "kids" are growing up, soon to leave their nests.
And I think they're going to fly beautifully,
unlike the poor turkey.
