Hope you all had a lovely holiday weekend!! Here are photos from our Thanksgiving. My parents joined us along with Karen, and we had a simple yet elegant feast.
This year we cooked a large turkey breast instead of a full turkey, and it was just as delicious with much less time in the oven. My mom made her brandied marshmallow sweet potatoes (love!) and Karen brought her famous oyster casserole. Matt and I prepared a mushroom stuffing with Cville Crunch bread as well as a pan of roasted brussels sprouts and potatoes seasoned with bacon and blue cheese. And of course, we had cranberry sauce and lots of buttery Virginia rolls. We dined just as the sun was setting at 5 o’clock.
Mazen had his first taste of Thanksgiving dinner, and wolfed down lots of stuffing and turkey. He then proceeded to sleep a record 12 hour night, so I will be feeding him Thanksgiving dinner every night from now on ; ) We had two Great Harvest pies for dessert – pumpkin and pecan. I served two of Sweet Sandies’ ice creams on top – toasted marshmallow and salted caramel. A sweet ending for sure!
