We hosted Thanksgiving dinner here this year. All of the Rices came totaling 35 people, or something like that. Chap roasted his first turkey. I made sweet potato casserole. Everyone brought a dish, making for an easy prep and clean up. Everyone came around noon and the house was empty by 4pm. Pretty easy and I wasn't even stressed! The only glitch was that we didn't have cable for the football fans. Maybe that's why everyone left at a reasonable time!
