I hope you all had a good week! The pic above is from a very memorable and funny Thanksgiving a few years ago where the table was getting set up with all the food, and the mac and cheese dish just exploded on the table. We didn't fret though and only the mashed potatoes and mac and cheese were ruined by glass, so we quickly whipped up a new batch of mashed potatoes, and opted for a quick fix of boxed Kraft mac &cheese.... We laughed through cleaning up all the glass and realized that this kind of thing is what makes the best memories, reset the table and enjoyed our feast!
Christian has been working late the last week, so I have been making the most of the 'me' time by getting in an evening suppertime stroll, and getting to bed early so I can do my hour on the firefly trail - sleep is truly a powerful thing! As of this morning, I am up to 4 miles in just under an hour, which I haven't been able to do since 2014 - so HUGE personal victory!!!
We are also planning our quiet little Thanksgiving feast at home on the farm. We had originally invited a few friends to join us, but it may end up just being us, which will be fun for a change too! I went ahead and ordered those colorful plates from my post yesterday and hopefully they will be here in time... Christian and I actually started dating around Thanksgiving back in 1999, so we also celebrate our anniversary on this feast-filled day as well!
What do you normally have on your big holiday feast menu? I am planning on roasted asparagus and brussel sprouts, roasted turkey, mashed potatoes, herbed homemade stuffing, nutritional yeast gravy with rosemary, mac & cheese, cranberry sauce (from the can of course!), and homemade pecan pie made with pecans from our little farm!!
Here are a few pics from the past couple of Thanksgiving feasts on the farm......
Writing this post has made me super hungry, so I am off to whip up breakfast and then head to work!
I hope you all have a great weekend!!!
