Holidays, 2018: Thanksgiving was celebrated two days late at Chateau de Joie, but also had a replay of the menu with a side helping of birthday celebration two days after that. The altered timeline was to make sure all the housemates had a chance to overindulge in food, drink and fun.
As usual, Joie and Marilyn split the pre-dinner duties, then James, Chris, Adeline and Katherine joined in to get all the dishes prepared and on the table. But Joie retained the honor of carving Lucille, the 20-pound star of the show.
|James, Katherine, Marilyn, Adeline & Chris|
|Joie, James, Katherine & very full plates!|
|James, Chris, Marilyn, Brittany|
Needless to say there was an abundance of sing-alongs and plenty of laughs...but the highlight was watching Brittany open her surprise present from Chris and James.
|Joie's latest appetizer specialty - Bruschetta|
|Mama Marilyn's Scallop Scampi & Angel Hair Pasta|
|Adeline's Yule Log - a pretty and scrumptious finale|
