I Spent 8 Hours Preparing Thanksgiving Dinner And It Was Over In 30 Minutes

From my family to yours Happy Thanksgiving to everyone in Active Rain.  My husband, son and I just finished up our Thanksgiving dinner a short time ago. 

I wanted to take pictures of what our dinner looked like but my husband and son were so hungry they started diving in and I was only able to take a couple of shots.

Tradition is our household each year is antipasto, lasagna, turkey, stufing and all the trimmings.  

No antipasto is complete without my favorite item;  hot cherry peppers stuffed with tunafish, onion and olives. 

My son Jeff put this colorful dish together early this afternoon.

Here's my husband Bob "declicately" carving our turkey.

Lastly, here's what was left of our poor little bird when all was said and done.

We're off to visit the rest of our family at my sister's house and enjoy some homemade apple pie, pumpkin pie and coffee!  Happy Thanksgiving and may your day today with your family and friends be just as enjoyable as ours!
