A Great Thanksgiving

Well, the hubby and I didn't end up heading home to family for Thanksgiving...but that doesn't mean we didn't have a feast for ourselves! We ate lots of Thanksgiving deliciousness...which lasted us a few days, needless to say. Here were some of the highlights:

 We snacked on a cheese ball and some veggies/dip

Sipped on some lovely vino

And turned this:

Into yummy green bean casserole:


And this (don't judge, I love boxed stuffing):


Into delicious stuffing:


There was also sweet potato casserole (sorry, no before picture...I got into a cooking rhythm and forgot) :)


And...

Ham, all the way from a butcher in Hagerstown, MD. A friend of ours' parent's sent us this ham last year and loved it so much that we ordered one for ourselves this year. It was well worth it!

I left the carving to the hubby

And, finally...my Thanksgiving plate:
For some of you that have been a follower from the beginning, you'll notice that I have meat on my plate, yet I've been a vegetarian since January 2010...I recently made the decision to go back to eating meat (definitely in moderation...especially red meat). It was just something that I had been thinking about for awhile now. And plus, I just couldn't pass up this ham!! ;) 

Needless to say, we had a great holiday spent together! Now that Thanksgiving is over, we say goodbye to this little fella:


And hello to...


Christmas time!! My favorite time of year!

  1. what a feast :) p.s. i totally support you veggie or not. i can't imagine living in omaha not eating meat, california is much easier to be a veggie because there are a bazillion options. in the midwest, not so much :)

    we missed you guys on turkey day.... sooo we need to do a reunion at some point!

  4. I'm happy to see that you have Kroger brand green beans! Mom and I swear they taste better than any other brand!

    I understand your return to eating some meat. I was a vegetarian for a few years in high school and college, and I wasn't very good at it. I probably eat more vegetables now than I did then. What changed for me was that I got hungry. Simple as that. :)
