Matriarchy: I am only cooking for 4, but I think I could be easily cook for more without much fuss. I got a 20lb turkey so we would have leftovers. The rest of the prep was simple. Roasted and pureed a huge neck pumpkin last week. Made veggie stock and brined the turkey yesterday. Making pumpkin pies and roasting sweet potatoes this morning. The rest of the stuff - stuffing, green beans, biscuits, and maybe a corn pudding - is just a big dinner. Celeste is making mashed and gravy. Clint is making a sweet potato pie. I make a lot of food from scratch everyday, so this is just a little more. I *could* cook more elaborate food, but then I would not have time to watch movies with the family, and mess around on the internet exchanging "thankfuls" with friends on Facebook.

Matriarchy: FAIL: Biscuits. The bag of self-rising White Lily flour I have been hoarding is too old - the baking powder failed, and I think I made hardtack! Also, filled the house with smoke when the turkey dripped outside the pan onto the floor of the oven. But the turkey was beautiful when it was done. My daughter made luscious gravy from pan drippings and turkey stock I got from simmering the neck. Must get back now... we still have to cut the coconut sweet potato pie my sweetie man made for us.
