I'm with you on that. I cook Thanksgiving dinner for the in-laws family, dinner for 20. But I cook all the dishes, exactly the way I want them, personal likes, dislikes and preferences not considered. There are at least 15 different things served, if you don't like something just don't eat that, you won't starve unless you want to.
+ the hope that I will be remembered for my attempted Norman Rockwell holidays instead.
