A Thanksgiving feast fit for a king

The past few days have been filled to the brim with preparation for Thanksgiving here at The Artemis. My tasks included making homemade marshmallows to top off the sweet potato pie, baking peanut butter cookies to welcome the students back from Israel, and making pecan pie bars. I also helped Fofi prepare cream of mushroom soup and fried onions to make green bean casserole and peeled chestnuts for the stuffing...and that was only the day before Thanksgiving.

Thanksgiving day was just as busy, but luckily there were more people to help out. I mostly spent the day setting up and later doing an innumerable amount of dishes. We had a total of sixty-seven people sharing the meal with us, so The Artemis was packed to the brim.

It was definitely one of the best Thanksgivings I've ever had. Sadly, I have no entertaining stories to tell, so I'll share some photos instead...

My homemade marshmallows...they didn't come out as fluffy as I'd hoped, but they definitely tasted like the real thing.

I hope that all of your Thanksgivings were filled with lots of wonderful food and love!

Pecan Pie Bars are the best and no one made them this year in my family. I guess I need to take that up myself.
