Kyle's cooking theme this year was no recipes and Sora as Sous Chef. Sora did a lot of the prep work on Tuesday and Wednesday with Kyle, including driving out to the farm to pick up the heritage turkey. Once my parents got here, Sora lost her cooking focus and Kyle had to finish up the rest of the meal on his own.
The spread: roasted brussels sprouts, two kinds of stuffing, kale/carrot salad, mashed potatoes, sweet potato biscuits, cranberry fig sauce, and of course turkey.
My parents stayed for a few days, and their dog Willow came with them. We have the perfect yard for dog visitors, and we even found a small dog park to take her to.
It was a quiet weekend with just the 5 of us, which was nice and relaxing, but I think Sora needed a little more excitement.
