So, I managed quite successfully to cram 20 people in my living room, on the floor for Chrismtas dinner. I used new recipes this year, so things turned out a little differently than expected, namely the stuffing and the pumpkin pie. The stuffing was a product of sheer imagination because I couldn't find celery to save my life (I went to ALL of the stores in town... no luck) so I used fennel instead. Also, instead of paprika, i used chili powder! Inventive? Perhaps. Tasty? You bet! I also stole a family turkey secret from the fabulous people I stayed with in Kamloops, you know who you are! The turkey was awesome! :) The pumpkin pie was not quite the same, it was missing something,.. i need to find last year's recipe!
So, all in all, it was fantastic time with friends who i now call part of my family. We talked a lot and played games, people reconnected with each other, and they also got to make some new friends! Thanks for your prayers!
