Lots of Leftovers!

It was a success... the Elders showed up 15 minutes early! but luckily everything was ready- it just needed to be dished up! We chowed down and it was soooo good! I love my mom's stuffing-I keep forgetting how easy it is, I need to make it more often. It was my first time making gravy... I thought about just not making it- but how horrible would that be??? So a little coaching from Mom over the phone and all was well! I can't say it was perfect but I am very pleased with my first time! I was a little scared about the dessert but it was SCRUMPTIOUS! I made Double Layer Pumpkin Cheesecake. I highly recommend it! Look at all these leftovers... yikes! Good thing Thanksgiving leftovers are my favorite!!! And the Elders were great! Elder Arnold is so much fun and he had a brand new companion- fresh from the MTC! I got to be his first dinner appointment. I am determined to be a better member missionary!
p.s. I didn't get to make the Snickers salad... and looking at the leftovers- that is probably a good thing! But I will make it soon and post the recipe for you Kim! It sounds soo weird but is delightful!

I can't wait till tomorrow! yay, turkey! love it. gravy is tricky for me- hit and miss, the last time I made a roast the gravy was sooo good, but usually, not so good. yummy stuff.
