A friend of ours cooked 3 turkeys-- smoked, deep-fried, and roasted with hot peppers-- and invited about 20 friends over. Everybody brought the best sides: asparagus, mashed potatoes, potatoes au gratin (made with gruyere), sweet potato casserole, sour-cream-topped cheesecake and strangest of all (yet still mighty tasty), chocolate-chip bacon cookies.

It was awesome to be able to enjoy the holiday without someone slamming down the silverware in the middle and screaming, "Grandpa thinks I'm fat!"
Or, "Those certainly are some interesting shoes to wear to Thanksgiving." They are, Auntie, they are.
