Food, Food & More Food!

I love absolutely everything about Thanksgiving; the quality time spent with family, the cooking, the smells & the general warm, fuzzy feeling I have. Growing up, I always knew I wanted to host Thanksgiving when I was older & had my own house. Well, now that time is here & that's exactly what I've been doing the past 3 years & I'm loving it! But, there's no way I'm taking all the credit for our meal since I have lots of help from family!

Cheers, Mom! Here's to enjoying a wonderful holiday season with so many things to be thankful for!

Cranberry sauce simmering away the night before Thanksgiving. Thanks again for giving me the recipe, Lauren!

Gotta have some healthy food amongst the not-so-healthy food!

Plenty of apps to choose from! Lots made from Tastefully Simple & also deviled eggs from Melanie as well as my homemade hummus.

The bird is stuffed & ready to go!

And now it's ready to be enjoyed!

Thanks for carving the turkey, Dad! FYI, the turkey is on the left! Ha ha, gosh, I am just so darn funny!

Look, I'm like Fred Flinstone eating my brontosaurus leg!

Here is my Thanksgiving plate; 2 types of stuffing, sweet potatoes, mashed potatoes, turkey, cranberry sauce & green bean casserole! YUM!

And here's the whole gang, sitting down to enjoy our meal!
