I'm Going to Party Like It's 1999

The holiday feeling in my household is almost palpable. The air's a bit cooler but there's a warmth. The lights are a bit dimmer but it's comforting. The tablecloth gets pressed. The good plates get taken out of the buffet. The menu gets done over and over. Everyone talks excitedly about whether we want to add a new dish to this year's rotation. I just really enjoy the holidays with my family. I can't imagine what I'll do if I ever move away. Will there ever be a year I don't cook for 10+ people? Geez, I hope not. Speaking of cooking...

Thanksgiving Menu

Cheese and Olive Platter
Herb Roasted Turkey
Brown Sugar and Honey Glazed Ham
Ginger Mashed Sweet Potatoes
Garlic and Cheese Mashed Potatoes
Turkey Gravy
Green Bean Salad with Almonds
Spinach Salad with Feta
Apple Pie
NY Style Cheesecake (with chocolate sauce)

I'm horribly excited.
