Our first Thanksgiving was great! I cooked most of Wednesday and Thursday until our dinner at 5 that evening. I tried a ton of new recipes that I’d never made before and most were foods I’ve never even eaten before. It was a lot of work, but a lot of fun! I’ll post links to the recipes I used at the end of the post. For now, here are a few pictures from the day.
The spread. I meant to buy a drop cloth for the table, but never got around to it. So I took down one of my drop cloth curtains. You gotta do, what you’ve gotta do! It was perfectly clean afterward except a huge spot of cranberry sauce that was spilled. The husband admitted later that it was him that dropped it. I guess I was taking my chances. 🙂 Good thing they’re cheap!
Here’s the list of food I put together
Dressing (a mix between my grandmother’s recipe and this one)
Mac n Cheese (granny’s recipe)
And our guests brought the turkey! 🙂
