Since I'm considering NOT cooking this year, I thought I'd share my favorite T-day story and invite y'all to share yours.
When I was 1st on my own I was too broke to fly home, so I decided to have an "Orphan's Thanksgiving" at my place, inviting all my friends/neighbors who also couldn't get home, had to work, etc.
I ended up with dinner for THIRTEEN in my tiny 300sq ft apartment. All my neighbors opened up their houses to me, letting me use their stoves and ovens and I ended up cooking in FOUR different kitchens to get it all done.
We sat on floors and pillows with mismatched tablewear and people in/out constantly, but it was GREAT fun. Everyone laughed and ate their fill and took leftovers home. We piled into each other's houses to clean up and then got completely drunk watching the game.
I've never had a more fun (and stressless!) Thanksgiving in my life.
