Holiday Feast

on the menu:
Sue’s slow roasted turkey
Will’s special stuffing (inspired by Hugh)
Nana’s green beans
Sweet potato casserole
mashed potatoes
Dad’s raspberry spinach salad with almonds & his (secret)onion poppy seed dressing
Pecan and Key Lime Pies with gluten free crust
Shep’s gingerbread house plan, made using Mom’s gingerbread recipe (developed to ensure structural integrity, not necessarily deliciousness)

Even the gingerbread house got finished, and keeping with a tradition started by my father, the plan is to put the house in a garbage bag on New Year’s Eve, and throw it down the stairs–then the kids get to hammer at it until enough cookie-size pieces break off that they can gnaw on it for a few hours before bed.
