Thanksgiving Prep

by Haley Fogarty

Nov 25, 2021

I was quite tempted to blog about my wonderful last week in Orlando at the GBTA convention, but I figure content from the conference can publish for weeks to come. With that said, I am excited to be the first to welcome Thanksgiving on to the staff blog.

As I write this, Thanksgiving is still two days away. With my family the annual hosts, we begin prep about a week in advance for the fall feast. This year will be the 30th year my mom has hosted Thanksgiving, even before I was a twinkle in her eye. I don’t know if it is the food, the season or just the fact I don’t have to leave my house with a full belly at the end of the evening, but my siblings and I all agree it is our favorite of the holidays.

Beyond the food and giving thanks, my family celebrates in a competitive, yet loving fashion. The Moey Cup is a pool tournament played on Thanksgiving where every eligible guest pays $2 to enter, and plays down the bracket, hoping to take home the prize and have their name etched into the famous Moey Cup Trophy.

Because my mom hosts for around 30 people each year, it is the responsibility of my siblings and I to lend a hand wherever we can. This year some of those tasks include creating the tournament bracket (which gets suspiciously questioned every year, but it is random!), and baking and cooking by our mom’s side.

Enjoy a couple of photos from years past as I get back to Turkey Day prep, and have a wonderful, wonderful holiday!
