Untitled 4 (Black Friday)

Spending Thanksgiving with 75 almost strangers was surprisingly lovely! The kitchen crew did a beautiful setup in the main hall with wine and cheese at 1:30 and the full out dinner at 2:00. It was amazing. Turkey, mashed potatoes, gravy, stuffing, cranberry sauce from scratch, sweet potatoes, green beans, roast beef, crab cakes, salads, cheeses, fruit, egg nog, apple cider, pumpkin pie, pecan pie, creme brulee, apple cobbler and more that I know I am forgetting. And all of it was amazingly cooked. I sat with a few new people that I had seen around but not really talked to yet and it was great! I decided to actually treat the day like a holiday and not spend all of it working in the studio. So after eating a disgusting amount, went for a nice long walk up the mountain and back for beautiful views of the valley, got back at dusk and lounged drinking wine, playing balderdash until the served they leftovers for dinner at 6:00 with to go containers in case you couldn’t eat anymore. Then downstairs to the lounge for more drinks,┬ábingo and chatting until it was time for bed!
