Thanksgiving Prep... A fun tradition

 Thanksgiving for my family is not the traditional Turkey, casseroles, stuffing, gravy, pies....

Instead our thanksgiving is a carefully thought out menu by my sister Heather.

I go down to Tampa Wednesday night and the process of Thanksgiving begins. We cook and have fun... story of my life.

A few months ago I came up with the idea of doing a turkey turnover and she built upon it and made it amazing.

So the weekend before Thanksgiving Heather called and gave me the run down of the dinner she had planned. She does all the hard work... comes up the menu, finds or makes the recipes and buys all the ingredients. I just show up and help her cook and do what I am told. (I call myself the Thanksgiving bi**h lol) But its a fun tradition and I wouldn't change it for anything.

Here are a few pictures from past Thanksgivings
