Did you have a lovely day?
We did...fun conversation, yummy food and
surrounded by people that we love.
And of course, we are grateful!
The high heat roast did very well! In fact, next time I will
check it sooner as I think it would have been done in less than
an hour for an 11 lb bird!
Nice brown, crispy skin and juicy meat.
Remember when our mom's put the turkey in the oven at 5:00 AM? ha.
Last year Taylor went to Lauren's home in Pennsylvania.
It was the first real sign that something serious was going on there. ha.
We were really happy to have her around our table today!
I bought a box of chocolate truffles and put them
in gold take out containers for little favors.
I'll show you more about them this week.
My now infamous crab apples that you see our my windows all the
time got to come in and help create the centerpiece.
And I froze some of those ginormous blackberries to use instead
of ice cubes in our drinks. I think they were prettier, too!
It's become a tradition for one of my brother-in-laws to join us!
I made four loaves of Braided Butter Bread.
Two for dinner, and two with pecans, cinnamon and drizzle for breakfast.
The stuffing is probably my favorite part of the meal.
I made a cornbread stuffing with onion, celery, sage and apples. Yum.
After dinner, some of us flopped on the couches to watch football.
Some of us slept in a tryptophan coma.
And some of us did dishes while sneaking an extra slice of pie. :)
Hope you had a lovely day!
