I only have DEFINITE "yesses" on 4 people so including us that makes 6 adults and 1 toddler... most of these recipes are for 12 servings, and what isn't 12 servings are the appetizers or 2 different 8-serving pies, of which I'm making 2 of each. My problem is, I invited my best friend, her mom, her sister & her sister's hubby & 2 toddlers. They lost their dad last December so this will be the 1st Thanksgiving without him. I mentioned something to my BFF 2 weeks ago when she visited, but she kind of gave me the impression they had plans but were not looking forward to them. I sent out a formal invite on Facebook to them tonight, and they replied "You're the best!" and "Thank you!" but that doesn't say "YES I'M COMING" to me, so I'm not sure what to think. I told them no pressure though, so I don't want to pry.
ANYWAY... Here's my menu:
Appetizers - cream cheese balls with mini shrimp & crab with Ritz crackers; cheese & sausage & cracker tray; chips/chex mix; Rotel dip & Doritos; Bacon Cheddar deviled eggs (24)
Main Course - 13.5 lb turkey; 2 different types of stuffing that DH is making; Cranberry sauce; Green bean casserole; whipped potato casserole; chili cheese spaghetti (yum)
Desserts - 2 apple pies and 2 "Easy Freezy pumpkin pies" and maybe some home made cookies(?)
Like I said originally we were only planning on 4, then his parents said they'd be by later on in the evening, then I felt I should invite my BFF and her family. I don't know if they'll show but if they do, do you think I have enough? I bought all my food planning on 4 adults and 1 child, and knowing I'd have plenty of leftovers.
