Holy Cow, I am worn out! We had 10 people total at our house for Thanksgiving and fun was had by all! I wasn't certain who was bringing what so I thought "I'll just make a dish...or 6." Well, I think there were about 15 different items in total that was sitting on my breakfast table and on my kitchen counters...that doesn't include the pre-meal snacks either!
Here's a bit of this and that:
Bacon-Wrapped Water Chestnuts
Brie en Croute with Dried Cherries, Pecans, Honey and Rosemary
Smoked Turkey and Deep-Fried Turkey
Green Bean Casserole (There was almost a mutiny last year when I made home-made Green Bean Casserole so I opted to make the regular canned version this year) and Cornbread Dressing (background)
Beets with Orange Vinaigrette (so delicious!!)
Homemade Sweet Potato Pie
Among Other Things We Ate:
Macaroni & Cheese
Darn Good Pie
There was so much food, which was a good thing, that every family got to take home enough food to have for at least the next two days!! What a wonderful Thanksgiving full of family, friends and food!
