The first event we got to host our new home was the annual Feast of Casseroles. Several years ago, our group of friends decided to start the tradition of having our own pre-Thanksgiving dinner together. We decided on a menu, with everyone's traditional holiday favorites. We realized the majority of the menu was a casserole of some sort, and thus the name. This was our 4th year, and we had about 50 guests. We deep fry turkeys and everyone brings a dish to share. It was the best feeling to look around our house and realize there were so many people there, and comfortably. It made the headaches of construction all worth it. We are certainly blessed to be a part of such a wonderful group of friends!
We moved the furniture around to make room for enough eating tables
Of the 50 people, about 15-20 were kids under the age of 6!
