8 Courses for the Perfect Thanksgiving …

It’s the same every year — I swear I’m going to let someone else host Thanksgiving, and by the middle of September, I’m already planning the menu myself.

It’s just that I’ve got the dinner down to a science now, so it’s a habit now, and I actually really enjoy it — except for the cleanup.

I have all of the courses planned, and ready to go… as well as a list of helpers to do the dishes at the end!

Although… what do you think your family would say to fresh oysters with caviar and shallots?
