I think Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday. Cooking, food, family, fun, staying in one place…what’s not to love!
Dad and I made the turkey this year.
This is funny because I do not eat turkey and my dad has never cooked a turkey before. This means that, yes, we left the giblet bag in the turkey…for three hours…while it was in the oven. Oops.
Ah yes, acorn squash…this is my wheelhouse!
Unless I forget about it in the toaster oven and start to smell something burning.
The pup was just hanging out while we cooked…
Kasey and the bird made piggies in a blanket.
LOTS of piggies in a blanket.
I made Cream Biscuits with Dill.
Brie, cranberry, pear, and mini toast platter.
Huge appetizer spread!
Dad making a fire!
Kasey and Louis!
Mom and Jason!
Mom and Kasey!
The gang playing some cards before dinner.
Time to make vegetarian stuffing:
I sautéed onion, dill, and rosemary before adding the veggie broth.
Jason got to carve the turkey this year!
My amazing plate: Acorn squash with stuffing and cranberry sauce, mashed sweet potatoes, mashed potatoes, green bean casserole, deviled egg, and a dill biscuit! Yum!
Johnny showed up…a little late, but we saved him some food ;)
When it was time for dessert I headed over to the Kitchen Aid and made homemade whipped cream…
…for my salted caramel pie!
I was proud…
My parents are cute.
So is my cousin.
Uh, let me explain…I was doing the “Dougie” and my mom thought it would be ok to take a picture. Not ok.
On that note…Happy Thanksgiving. I have so much to be thankful for!
