Even though I planned and prepped ahead of time, it still wound up being a race to the finish. And I must admit, even though both parties were a success in terms of yummy food, Saturday's was way more calm and relaxing for me. I served the Stuffing and Lentil Loaf from the day before, and made the Sweet Potatoes, Brussels Sprouts and Gravy fresh. I also made the Appetizers and Pecan Tarts on Saturday, as well. So, it's not like I did any less, but maybe I was just less stressed on day two? Hmm?

I'm off to go decorate my tree and work off some of these holiday calories... before stuffing my face with leftovers! Ha.
