The day I have been anticipating for months is finally here: T-day. YAY! I could not be any more excited. Just like last year, and the year prior to that, I decided to be host to Thanksgiving this year again.
I invited the same familiar faces, although decidedly less people than last year, but the food remains a focus. Although my Thanksgiving is a potluck affair, I do most of the cooking: the bird, a few sides AND desserts.
This year I did not disappoint. Along with my Turkey (brined to perfection I hope), I am also making:
Apple Chipotle carrots
Green beans with slivered almonds
Potatoes au Gratin
Mac and cheese (from the box)
Arroz con Palmito
Corn bread (from the box...so excited about this!!!)
7 Layer Magic Bars (not right without them)
2 Apple pies (made from scratch)
"Oreo' truffle Balls
I know that hubby's cousin is bringing the stuffing and gravy. Another cousin is making carrot cake with cream cheese frosting and cheesecake and brownies (YUM!). And a beets salad.
It should be a a day of thanks indeed.... and a feast for the eyes! Happy Turkey Day! Gobble, Gobble.
