I did plan on blogging over my four day weekend, but unfortunately I forgot to bring my camera cord to my mommy’s. Oh well, better late than never, right? I had a lovely holiday and break from work. It all started on Wednesday night. Mom and I enjoyed a nice cocktail while getting some night-before-prepping done (aka… Amanda chopping mountains of celery and onions for the stuffing, as per usual)
Then came Thanksgiving day. I was a bad blogger and didn’t take a whole lot of pictures. Here’s Martha Stewart’s my mom’s festive table.
Lots and lots of food was had. I only took this one pic of my first plate (yes, first plate). Just for list-making sake… we had turkey breast soaked in yummy brine overnight, stuffing, mashed potatoes, squash, sesame green beans, whole grain rolls, obligatory canned cranberry sauce, gravy, waldorf salad, relish tray, and dessertssss.
We waited about 2 seconds to have dessert. I, as always, was so full that I could barely move… but does that stop me from packing in a little dessert?? Not really. I’m not much of a fan of pumpkin pie (it’s a texture thing… I like to call it the “gag texture” haha). So, I had a little taste of the apple crisp and some pumpkin mousse (sorry, no pic of this!).
Once we all stuffed our faces, the dishes were done, and the leftovers were compiled into things like this:
And for entertainment? I brought my son along and got to witness the 23412 standoffs with my childhood, 15-year-oldish cat Missie… hilarious. Don’t worry, no harm was done, they’re all talk.
