Happy Turkey Day! Yes, I know this post is a little late but things are hectic around here, as you can imagine. This year we decided to keep things very low-key. We still went to my parent's house, but SP did some of the cooking (veggie sides and dessert) and my mom did the turkey and the rest of the sides. It was a great time and Baby Girl slept through the whole meal, allowing everyone to enjoy a hot meal together.
Here's the turkey, fresh from the oven:
And here it is after my stepdad worked his carving magic:
Glorious, fluffy mashed potatoes:
SP made the stuffing, with a little help from me:
...with a hint of apple from apple cider. Delish! He also made green bean casserole:
Yes, it had cream of mushroom soup, but the beans were fresh. Cranberry sauce:
... were the surprise hit of the year. It was a simple recipe using brown sugar, sherry and baby carrots and butter. Plenty of gravy made from the turkey drippings:
The table all laid out:
My plate with lots of everything.
I hope everyone had a good Thanksgiving. Next year maybe Baby Girl will be helping out in the kitchen.
