My Thanksgiving dinner didn’t look a thing like that! My sister and I talked our mom into doing a “Day-After-Thanksgiving” dinner. We did that in a busy year past and loved it! My mom made homemade breads for turkey sandwiches and she was able to make all of the food ahead of time instead of cooking all day. It was a great dinner and day. Happy Thanksgiving to all of you! I hope you are well stuffed and feeling loved 🙂
