It was such a pleasure hosting Thanksgiving this year...it is a small tradition the hubby and I started about 2 years ago, we have a Thanksgiving dinner at our house on Friday night...where we are all able to eat TOGETHER... ONE meal...and stay until the sun comes up! Usually everyone has too many houses to go to, and ends up eating like 3 meals and not enjoying any...Who needs to give thanks on a specific day...it's all the same in my book. We stuffed our face with Dad's homemade gravy...which should win some sort of Gravy contest..if there was one...Sister helped make the house a home, and single handedly decked the dessert table to the max, adding a French Apple pie her boyfriend so graciously brought over after she forgot it! My aunt made her amazing stuffing, cousins brought some pies and specialty drinks, Debbie brought carmelized apples, I made two turkeys, homemade cranberry sauce, pumpkin bread, and my carrots and parsnips, and my papa sat at the head of the table to enjoy the meal. After dinner one of my dearest friends came over to enjoy S'mores, and sat in the backyard that my hubby transformed into this amazing lounge!
Aside from the massive oven fire my hubby started with the spanakopita and the malfunctioning of the chocolate fountain that my sister's amazing boyfriend resuscitated...the evening was perfect...
