My Thanksgiving was a lot of work.
On Monday I cooked 2 pumpkin pies and made cranberry sauce.
On Tuesday I made Sour Cream Apple Pie and some pumpkin dip
On Wednesday I chopped my onions and my celery, tip/tailed my green beans, and thawed my 15.25lb turkey.
On Thursday I cooked everything else, all while half drunk (hence the pre-chopping, so I wouldn't be wielding a knife while drunk). Green beans with onions and bacon, sweet potatoes with marshmallows, mashed potatoes and gravy, cornbread stuffing, rolls, turkey, classic relish tray, 2 kinds of fudge...
I shared a bottle of champagne by noon (mimosas are imperative) and then drank hard cider all day until I hit red wine with dinner.
And I only had one guest, but the apartment was mine since mother went to Portland to visit her sister for the week.
