Thanksgiving Dinner!

Thanksgiving Dinner

This was my Thanksgiving dinner. Not perfectly plated, but it was perfectly delicious! I’m so full and tired.

Thanksgiving dinner was a combined effort. My mom made the turkey and the oyster and cornbread stuffing. We cooked the macaroni and cheese together. I made the collard greens. My aunt made the candied sweet potatoes and mushroom stuffing. Then my aunt and I made the gravy together. The cranberry sauce was the traditional canned variety from Ocean Spray, which you can tell by the lines! LOL.

Thank you to those of you who read my posts faithfully and also to those of you who drop by now and again. You’re very much appreciated! Happy Thanksgiving!

Thanksgiving 2014

Thanksgiving DinnerThis picture is from Thanksgiving 2007 over at my aunt’s house. It’s hard to believe that so much time has gone by and all the changes that have taken place. I was just in my second year of blogging at that point. Such a newbie! The economy hadn’t officially crashed yet and I was still driving my Bug.

Since this picture, my aunt has moved to a different place. Today my family is going over to my uncle’s house and he has moved recently as well. I thought I was going to make gingerbread, but I’m starting to have second thoughts. Maybe I will bring something different. Still deciding….

Looking back at this year, it’s been transformative in many ways. Mostly all good too, which I am very thankful for.

I hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving today surrounded by family and friends. Hopefully nobody has to leave early because they are working retail. Requiring anyone to work today just to increase Black Friday sales by a few hours is so against what today is supposed to be about. It’s truly heartless.

In case you are looking for some stores to support that refuse to stay open on Thanksgiving, here is a list.

Happy Thanksgiving!
