I love Thanksgiving! I don't know if it's the food...being with family...or a combination of the two?! Either way, I just love it! This year we made plans to spend Thanksgiving at Matt's parents house. I volunteered to make the stuffing balls. This happens to be my mom's special recipe...so the Tuesday before Turkey Day I went over to my mom's to cook some stuffing!
Unfortunately I can't post the recipe. It's hush hush in our family...and well, we don't measure anyways. lol I will tell you this... I chopped for hours!
Ignore the wet spot on my shirt. I had a slight run-in with the faucet while washing the celery.
Matt even helped... though I think he was more playing than helping. lol
Yum! They're all done!
In the morning Matt's mom woke up early to start on the turkey. I wanted to help but my body was not feeling the 6am wake-up call. But I did wake up a couple hours later and baked some homemade cinnamon rolls. Oh... they were delicious! Meanwhile the turkey and stuffing were cooking!
Family started to arrive around 2pm. It was a full house...just the way we like it! They even dressed up the one of the dogs. I don't know if he was feeling it though. :)
We were munching on appetizers the whole morning... this little cheese ball was one of my favs. It was like cream cheese frosting with little chocolate chips in it... served with graham crackers
Mom with the turkey! It's all done!! All 20lbs of Turkey Love!
We really had an awesome time! We had to leave that night so that Matt was back home in time for work in the morning. :(
