My friend had a pre-celebration the other night in which all the popular Thanksgiving dishes were prepared (with love of course!) It was quite the festivity, and I decided to document this welcoming get-together. This pre-celebration is the closest I came to Thanksgiving this year, since my family decided to be non-conformists and had a barbecue instead of the traditional turkey meal. Since the age of 7, I was the one to cook all of our holiday dinners. Sadly I didn't have the time to spend all day in the kitchen this time (I spent all day in front of my school books instead). Needless to say, this was still a great Thanksgiving. Gobble gobble :) !
