The Day Before Thanksgiving

 The guest house tables are set and the place is almost ready for the big dinner.  I'm using my old dining room tables which enable me to seat 14 people.  I recently ordered 2 new tables, chairs and benches which will let me seat 22-24 people.  We are going to need it.  I set the buffet up with chafing dishes to keep everything warm and people can help themselves.

 Yesterday I made the pecan pies.  Today I make the pumpkin pies and the cranberry cake.

The sweet potato casserole is ready to be baked though photobucket seems to already have eaten half of it.

 Green bean casserole.

 Creamed pearl onions and baby peas.

And a lot of gravy!  Gravy is the best part of the dinner.  I have about another 10 hours of cooking.
