I have a lot to be thankful for this year – being alive and having an amazing support system of family and friends is the main one. I celebrated Thanksgiving with my Mom, Dad, Brother, Aunt, Boyfriend Brad, Friend Nicole and Friend Chad. It was a great day.
Sad to say, my help in the kitchen was fairly non-existent but I will share what we had:
Deep-fried Turkey – no we are not normally redneck’s, but it was very good
Stuffing (recipe below, thanks Catarina!)
Homemade cranberry sauce
Green bean casserole
Sweet Potato Casserole (Nicole will have to share this recipe, Brad loves it!)
Also sad to say, I didn’t take any pictures of our feast. In my defense, I’m still getting back up to speed, so forgive the boring blog. Hopefully I will be back and running soon.
