The Menu

The day started with Stuffed French Toast served with warm Syrup, Bacon, Grapefruit and Orange Juice. A Holiday traditional at our house.

While I am slaving away in the kitchen (NOT…as most of it was done ahead, I am all about pre planning) the dog was taking it easy and lounging around. Every once and a while he would muster up the energy to wander through the kitchen to make sure nothing had landed on the floor during the meal preparations.

It holds us over till our meal.

At about 2:00 PM I set out a plate of crackers and my Pepper Jelly over cream cheese for an afternoon tide me over snack. Super Yummy if I do say so myself. The Hubs did not like the jelly but that just means more for me!

Y’all it happens every year. I should have used this one for my last Random Dozen.

Without fail we manage to fix enough food for twice as many people (3 times probably). But isn’t that what Thanksgiving is all about. A celebration of a bountiful harvest and being thankful for God’s provision.

I have enough leftovers for a month!

My sister and crew have just left. My tummy is pleasantly full. I managed to restrain myself from over eating to the point of misery.

After dinner we played a game of Picturekia and enjoyed our desert and a round of latte’s.

It was a wonderful time of family and festive holiday celebration.

Now, I am nestled in the corner of my sofa, laptop on my knee with a roaring fire watching Shrek contemplating a piece of pumpkin pie or maybe Homemade (from scratch) German Chocolate Cake (whew…that’s a whole other post) but y’all it was really good!

Happy Thanksgiving

So what did y’all have on the menu?

Blessings

I just gobbled down a sandwich but looking at your spread made me hungry all over again :-) Looks SO STINKIN' GOOD!

Enjoy your fire, cake (or pie) and relaxing after all that cooking. I'm sitting in front of my fan about prostrate from the heat. After a looooooooong day in Cordoba all I had the energy to make was sandwiches. lol

P.S. For Thanksgiving I had a frozen pizza at 10 pm after finally finishing at the English school. Whew!
