Belated Thanksgiving November 29, 2011

Hello, out there!  We spent our first Thanksgiving here in MN, and I spent my first Thanksgiving ever not at my mom’s house.  Thankfully, my mom was able to come out here for a visit, and we had a nice meal for three (and a quarter!).  I didn’t take many pictures because, well, cooking a whole Thanksgiving meal is a little hectic!  Here’s our appetizer.  I got the idea from Pinterest.  It’s supposed to be antipasto skewers, but I didn’t have long enough skewers, so I just put it all on a platter.  It includes beef summer sausage, turkey pepperoni, mozzarella balls, green olives, tortellini marinated in balsamic dressing, and grape tomatoes.

For the main event, we had our traditional Thanksgiving meal…. turkey breast, mashed potatoes, stuffing, squash, gravy, green beans with buttered almonds, cranberry jelly (yes, the kind from the can!), and rolls.  It was amazingly delicious, of course.  (Please excuse the iPhone pictures too, not the greatest!)

And here’s a pic of little M on her first Thanksgiving…

Hope everyone had a nice Thanksgiving!
