We had a houseful of guests this weekend – 3 adults, 3 children under the age of 9. We were dangerously close to having more children than adults.
That is risky business.
We also had a 10 hour round-trip drive for a family wedding, meaning lots of chatting with and hugging on extended family.
Somewhere in there we fit in breakfast with completely-unrelated-to-the-wedding family. All in all, good.
And, we had a bit of insanity.
Insanity is a guest (ahem, your mom) emailing the day before arrival to say:
Rational, reasonable Shannah thought
Insane Shannah emailed back and said
So before hopping in the car for leg one of the 10 hour round-trip drive, I made nearly all of the side dishes and two kinds of pie.
After returning post-wedding, post-family breakfast, post-leg two of the 10 hour round-trip drive, I roasted a turkey and made the remaining of the Thanksgiving dishes.
And…it was good.
