Turkey Day Coma/Weekend Update

I did it! I successfully made my first, full Thanksgiving meal and it was yummy :) I didn't take as many pictures as I would have liked to (I was a busy girl!) but here are some:

Turkey browning up nicely

Cranberry sauce. My hubby said it was the best that he had ever tasted!

Cornbread stuffing... yum!

Corn pudding ready to bake in the oven... yes, that is almost a full stick of butter ;) It was completely necessary haha

Me taking a quick break from a long day of cooking

Our menu was full of lots of yummy food:
cornbread stuffing
cranberry sauce
corn pudding
green beans
cream peas
mashed potatoes
sweet potatoes
mac n' cheese
roasted carrots
pecan pie
apple pie

I had so much fun spending the day in the kitchen. I was a little stressed about all the cooking but we had a friend in town and he was a HUGE help! The three of us had a blast and then enjoyed a wonderful dinner. And now we have leftovers for days! B had to work most of the holiday break but we did manage to squeeze in time to go see "Breaking Dawn". Oh mah word... LOVE! It is by far my favorite movie of the series.

Saturday night we put up our Christmas tree. I am a firm believer in celebrating one holiday at a time so no tree or holiday music until after Thanksgiving! Christmas music was blasting and I am so happy to have our tree up. I love the holiday season :) I am also a very thankful wifey... B let me decorate our tree pink and green. He really is the best!

I hope y'all had a great Thanksgiving with your loved ones! There is so much to be thankful for this year!

Have a great day.

  1. I am of the same school of thought... I even purposely looked the other way when driving by shopping centers with all of the decorations up! BUt now I am ready too!
