Within the past two months, we’ve had three housewarming &or engagement parties at our house with tons of people and not a lot of seating. It was fun and sometimes hectic, but so worthwhile. I was telling a buddy how I love to host/entertain and he said, “People like us need people like you to bring everyone together.” So true! I handed over the responsibility for Christmas dinner to my cousin this year though because I’m so pooped and am having a case of carpel tunnel (yay). The turkey above is from our most recent party where Jason made the most scrumptious turkey we ever did have, and the key was the brine/rub that he used (Urban Accents Gourmet Gobbler Turkey Kit). All in all, it was so nice to see our friends and welcome them to our new home. There will be many more get-togethers to come!
