We had a wonderful Thanksgiving Day and hope you all did too. We did something a bit different this year. We prepped all our food on Wednesday, covered it and put it in the refrigerator. Then on Thursday, all we had to do was pull out the food and cook it in the oven. My Mom took the things that cooked at one temp. to her home (just a few doors down) and I cooked the rest. It worked out wonderfully. Here is Lexi (with Mom in the background) making the bread crumbs for our stuffing. Lexi helped prepare all of our Thanksgiving Day dishes. She had a lot of fun working in the kitchen with us and did a great job.
Stirring up the broccoli, rice casserole.
This was my table centerpiece.
Look at all this food for the five of us! We had turkey and dressing, broccoli and rice casserole, sweet potatoes with marshmallows, corn casserole, watergate salad, cinnamon apple cranberry sauce (a new recipe for us that I'll post later this week), rolls, pumpkin pie and pecan pie. We have eaten left-overs every day!
Friends, family and summer
