Martha came to visit from Canada to celebrate her very first American Thanksgiving. It’s one of our favorite holidays around here, and it was especially exciting that it was the first one in the new house! This year, Martha and Loo Loo were around, in addition to Mom Mom, GP, Sue Sue and Papaw. We missed Uncle Chris, who ended up staying home sick =(. But still enough people for two turkeys!
On the menu this year:
MunchiesRosemary Pecans Pumpkin Spice Dip with Cinnamon Graham Crackers and Chocolate Teddy Grahams Spinach and Artichoke Dip with Pita Chips Hummus and Red, Orange and Yellow Bell Peppers Sundried Tomato, Pesto and Cheese Torte with Club Crackers Buffalo Chicken Dip with Tostidos
DinnerTwo Fried Turkeys Homemade Macaroni and Cheese Biscuits Green Bean Casserole Sweet Potato Casserole (with pecans, not marshmallows on top) Broccoli and Onion Deal Stuffing Collard Greens and Pace Pecan Pie and Vanilla Ice Cream Cake Pops Lots of Wine!
The boys go up to the Man Cave to watch football, while the ladies set out munchies, watch the Macy’s Day Parade, and start cooking the side dishes.
The guys relax and have a cold one while the oil gets hot….
Make sure the children are being entertained while everything is cooking…
Turkeys are done!
Dinner is served!
We decided to go mini golfing the day after Thanksgiving to work off some of the sweet potato casserole!!
That night, we blasted some Christmas music and put up the decorations. We haven’t done the outside yet, but the tree and some of the little holiday knick knacks are up!
And the Holidays Begin!
