    Like say they will come so you are counting on 10 people for dinner.... then 4 of them change their mind AFTER the turkey is done. [​IMG] Anyone want some really, really moist roasted turkey? And about 4 lbs of fudge? And 8 dozen chocolate chip cookies??????

    know what you mean...actually the opposite. I invited my brother and SIL (and family)...and she invites her family and her in-laws from the other side without telling me! WHO DOES THAT???? I certainly don't mind the people, but I'd like to have them a chair ready and maybe some dinner! DUH!

    Obviously, I am not letting my previous post go quite yet! [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Dixie I always cook too much food just in case someone brings someone, but this time - OMG!!!! I had a 21 lb turkey for 4 people. I mean really! Who is ever gonna eat that much turkey. And it just happens to be the BEST one I have ever made!

    It's funny because my mom swears by basting the heck out of a turkey and I was so busy today I only basted it a couple times. I took it out and the darned leg bone fell out!!!! YUM!

    debiraymond , sounds like you have a problem I COULD USE. every one comes to my house & brings every hungry relitive & friend they can find. These people can crunch up, drink, & eat every thing in sight & what they don't eat they carry home with them.
    today 2 turkeys & 1 HUGE ham. + loads of all the trimmings= ALL GONE!!![​IMG] Cdebiraymond COUNT YOUR BLESSINGS!!

    Hey! More turkey sandwiches for you! Nothing better than a toasted bread turkey sandwich with a little Miracle Whip on it. Yummy!
    Send me some of that turkey. I'll put it to good use. We didn't cook a very big one this year and I didn't bring home enough for but one sandwich. [​IMG]

    AND the turkey carcass will make a yumola pot of turkey veggie stew. My dad always makes that for us and it's fabulous. I really miss living at home sometimes.

    Sorry your family was a pain in the tookus!
