Family, Food and Chestnuts Roasted On An Open Fire

We had a great Thanksgiving Day and are looking forward to a couple more days of relaxing with family and friends. We ended up having 22 which is a record, I believe. We had to be creative to get everyone a seat. The family is outgrowing the "kids table" phase, so we did the best we could.

We cooked a 21 lb turkey with onion, celery, sage and thyme stuffing. The crowd made light work of it, but thankfully I have cooked a turkey breast, so I have plenty of leftovers.

We did desert buffet style. We had pumpkin pie, three kinds of apple pie, lemon merange pie, cheescake and more. I think it was the biggest desert selection at our house so far.

After all the feasting was done, I made a fire in our fire pit and looked at the Jupiter and Venus which were next to each other in the early evening sky.

We capped off the night by roasting up some chestnuts in the fire.
