We had a fabulous and wonderful Thanksgiving holiday at our house. There were 9 of us this year, which worked out really nicely because we could all fit at the same table. My parents, my brother, and some friends joined us. There was much food. The menu included:
Deep fried turkey
Traditional bread stuffing
Smoky bacon and biscuit dressing
Honey roasted root vegetables
Green bean casserole
Baked cranberries with rum
Bourbon pecan tart
Homemade whipped cream
Mmmm.... it seemed like the favorite this year was the bacon and biscuit stuffing. Truly decadent. I wish I had some pictures to share, but I was kind of distracted what with all the cooking and feasting.
There is so much to be thankful for this year. I try to count my blessings every day, but it really is just extra special to have a day to really focus on all of the wonderful things in my life. Between that, and the fun feasting that always is a part of the day in my family, Thanksgiving is definitely my favorite holiday.
And I'm also very thankful for my friend, E, who brought a super special gift:
With tasty treats!
How cool is it to have crafty friends??? The basket is just perfect.
