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) :)
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!
