This is not our house and I admit it is a bit exaggerated but it might as well have been our house because on Thanksgiving eve., 15 minutes before the guests arrived, the toilets, sinks, showers ALL backed up. Turkeys, stuffing, brussel sprouts, mashed potatoes, two pies were all warmed, the table was set and the Cava had been uncorked. All those around me remained calm whilst I dissolved in the middle of the kitchen. They picked me up (along with all the fixings) and moved 'us' to our friends house, Augustine and Irene, where we had a lovely meal with 17 other people. Timing!
