Just a little bit over a week ago, Thanksgiving plans changed and I was nominated to host a Thanksgiving dinner. Thank goodness my parents offered up their home for dinner because I didn’t plan on cleaning and prepping our house with a week’s notice, hah! …so I hustled and bustled to get everything done in time for Turkey Day.
After making the floral arrangements, setting the table, and cooking up a storm, I’d say it was another successful Thanksgiving dinner hosted by yours truly.
…and it wouldn’t be Thanksgiving without a feast! Some of the dishes that I cooked/served are pictured below:
Green beans with shallots and almonds
Chicken Wild Rice
Sausage and Cranberry Cornbread Stuffing
Garlic Roasted Mashed Potatoes
Roasted Garlic Pork
…and of course, the juicy and delicious turkey!
Before we all stuffed ourselves, we remembered to snap some photos. I especially love the ones of G and the dogs; they crack me up.
Candles were lit, grace was said, and a party of eight went food happy.
The best part about Thanksgiving, in my opinion, is the leftovers! Yum! Oh, the gravy… *salivating*
…but now that Thanksgiving is officially over, I can now start decorating for Christmas. Wahoo! I’ve held off up until now.
