Thanksgiving!


I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving! We had a fantastic dinner at Andrew's parents house. It was full to the brim with 13 of us stuffed in, 7 of that number being kids! But, when you have a spread like this and family around, not having a chair to sit in or a place to set your plate doesn't matter as much. 


This doesn't even include the 6 or 8 pies that were demolished through the coarse of the afternoon! 

My employer gives us all a turkey the week before thanksgiving, so we brought the turkey. It was our first time cooking turkey, so it was a bit of an unknown adventure. We borrowed my mom's electric roaster and it was fabulous. If you have never tried it, I really recommend it. No hassle, no checking the turkey to make sure it is staying moist. Just plug it in and go. We couldn't even get our turkey out in one piece, it was so tender!

Hope you all had a great thanksgiving and a relaxing weekend!

  2. Some of the best Thanksgivings are the ones where you are crowded in with family and plates on the lap!!
