Family and Food....

Date:  November 28, 2013

For a family so in love with can imagine how Thanksgiving is for us.  It's amazing.  The food is delicious and in large quantities.  The wonderful aroma in my kitchen, of the Butterball turkey roasting in my oven, on the morning of Thanksgiving every year makes the anticipation for dinner almost unbearable.  Mom mom, sisters and I always get together about a week before Thanksgiving every year to plan out the menu.  I don't know why we do's almost the same menu every year, but we love to do it!  There's just something about the days leading up to a holiday that are almost more exciting than the actual holiday.'s either that, or maybe it's the fact that we really just love to talk about food. :)  

Here was our Thanksgiving 2013 menu!

2 Turkeys, both stuffed with yummy stuffing with lots of raisins! 
Mashed potatoes 
Turkey gravy
Green bean casserole
Corn casserole
Brown and serve rolls
Sweet potatoes
Pea salad

Pumpkin pie
Sour cream apple pie
Caramel toffee cheesecake
Cranberry marshmallow salad
Cherry pie
Pumpkin bars
Chocolate and whipped cream delight

It was a great day with scrumptious food and loving family. :)

I made this little gift for Helen, our guest.  It's mini pumpkin spice candles in a mason jar.  Easy and adorable!
I started my morning off with some delicious pumpkin coffee and vanilla cream.
I bought the coffee from our local apple farm!  I sipped this and read my fall magazines while the turkey roasted.

Caramel Toffee cheesecake!  So easy to make!

My sister made the cutest little place settings.  They were little bags of Thanksgiving trail mix!
