Too bad about your sister's gang, PF
. Still, it sounds like you had a full, happy house for Thanksgiving.

Waaaa! I want holidays like you two had! I miss times like when my Mom and Dad had the four of us over along with every other stray-cat relative of ours. Dinners wtih 11, 12, 13 of us crammed around the big dining table were the norm most holidays. Now I'm lucky if the head-count is more that two.
It was four of us yesterday. Himself's sister came with two turkeys - the dinner kind plus her hubby. She also brought gravy and the pumpkin pie. I made lots of sides since I couldn't decide - and as it was, I still didn't bother with a couple of others either because I ran out of time/oven space or I plum forgot. We had: turkey, two stuffings (one in/one out), cranberry sauce
, oh-so-good sweet potatoes
, green beans with almonds, Brussels sprouts/bacon/mushroom casserole, roasted beets, mashed potatoes, steamed broccoli. Pumpkin pie after all the dishes were cleared and the leftovers stored away. Two bottle of wine also died noble deaths. The "dead soldiers" were given proper internment into the recycling cart.
