Thanksgiving and 37 mouths to feed!

Our turkey was cooked in this yard above in an Emu (which is a pit in the ground covered with leaves) it cooked all night long and it was the best turkey I have ever had.  SO Moist, the meat literally fell off the bones. The boy scouts sold tickets to raise money for camp thus they had to do a lot of the work.. "A"  and "B" worked from 5 to 10pm preparing the pit then lighting the fire then picking up turkeys and loading them in the Emu. Best 10$ I have ever spent. 

 "D" invited his students over to eat with us since most of them are not from the island and it is really expensive to fly home. SO we had 37 guests for dinner. WE ended up moving our living room furniture into the garage to make way for the tables and chairs, and to also have people out of the house while a friend (yes I drug a friend into helping me and having her family eat with us, Thanks ANN!) and I finished the preparations.
Garage...maybe we should rent this out:)
 Tables all set, good job boys! 
The food was delicious!! Mostly because of Ann's great culinary skill!
