As usual when I'm involved in a potluck holiday get together I tend to worry needlessly over the outcome. I'm always in charge of the meats and I don't know how many of you have had the disaster of running out of the main dish with a swarm of people to be happened to me once a long time ago. Just like last year, there was nothing to worry about and just like last year I promised not to get that involved in the potluck again. Of course, this year the entire shindig was being produced by me with a great deal of help from Sharon on Cast Away. We had 50+ people show up with a nice mixture of the cruisers, marina employees, and various other locals.....they really like our Thanksgiving gringo food. We had 2 fresh turkeys, 1 smoked turkey, 1 smoked ham, and 1 smoked ham with pieces of garlic throughout. I can't think of anything from a traditional Thanksgiving dinner that we didn't have. Mashed potatos, scalloped potatos, stuffing, 3 or 4 kinds of veggies, fresh cranberries and jellied cranberries, different salads including a nice lobster salad, pasta, shrimp dish, apple pie, pumpkin pie, and 3 different kind of cakes. If you can't be with family, I can't think of a better Thanksgiving get together. Now it's time to get busy on the mast....maybe about a weeks worth and then it gets stepped.
