We just got back from an eating extravaganza at my parent's house! We had a ton of food, and my parents even set us up with a couple boxes of leftovers!
Here's just a quick run down of this year's events:
My mom's really cute centerpiece.
The free-range bird in all it's 25 lb. glory. It was a pretty huge bird... you can see it hardly even fits into the roasting pan!
The spread of side dishes consisted of mashed potatoes, corn, green bean casserole, roasted artichokes, fresh made rolls, sweet potatoes, cranberry sauce (yes from the can!), and gravy! We also had a crap load of dessert dishes that included a peppermint meringue chocolate cake (made by moi!), pumpkin pie, apple pie, a variety of cheesecakes, a variety of chocolates, and brownies. So needless to say, no one went hungry!
We like the dark meat in our family! My sister was definitely in touch with her carnal side and opted for a leg piece!
Just a couple candid shots of my sisters... you can tell my sister Frances (on the left edge) is really classy, hehe.
|Now she looks more civilized|
The end of the night consisted of my mom bombarding us with deodorant (you have to know my mom because every time we come over it seems like she gives us TOTALLY random gifts), a big canister of popcorn, and a purse. Talk about random things, but hey, at least she was concerned about our body odor!
If you celebrated Thanksgiving, how did it go? Hope you have full bellies and if you're going out in the madness for Black Friday (I am NOT), be careful and be safe!
And I definitely want to make sure you guys know that you are one of the many things I am thankful for today... and every day!
