In the past Randy and I have prepared Thanksgiving dinner for family, friends and strangers (not to say that some family and friends can't be pretty strange, too!). Twice we had the privilege of working with the Central Community Church in Riverside, who feed over 3,000 people each Thanksgiving. This year it was a little different; we fed about 70 people, and they all paid for their place at the dinner table! And the Thanksgiving dinner at the Hilton Head Island Motorcoach Resort was a great success. How do you make it a great success? Have turkey, ham, green bean casserole, holiday corn, Waldorf salad, sweet potato casserole, mashed potatoes, bread stuffing, oyster stuffing, regular gravy, giblet gravy, rolls and cranberry relish. Finish it off with apple pie, pecan pie, chocolate cream pie, coconut cream pie, pumpkin pie and whipped cream. Everything made from scratch, of course.
One year ago: Thanksgiving for a few thousand people
Two years ago: Thanksgiving in Florida
Three years ago: Thanksgiving for 3,500 people
