Here is the buffet setting. Looks like I was still preparing the table when my friend shot this. I cooked everything except for the turkey. I ordered it from a local antique dealer and he is Cajun and is an excellent cook.
Turkey and sweet potato casserole
Roasted herbed potatoes using rosemary that I also picked from our garden and crab omelette
We had 3 teen-age guests and I set the table in the kitchen for them. I tried to promote the oldest to eat in the dining room but she was too shy and she went back to the kitchen to eat with the youngsters, lol.
Well, I really did not make the mint and turtle chocolates either. They were gifts from the staff and patients I think, but I did bake the macaroons and flan.
I used my Johnson Brothers' Friendly Village set for tea but nobody really wanted coffee so I did not even get to use my Lenox Winter Greetings set.
It must have been a full moon cause after all the other guests left, my 2 close friends lingered and we all got silly, lol. John went on the massager and fell asleep there.
I was exhausted and what better way to relax than putting my feet up on the recliner and do karaoke.
And we did not even wake John up!
