Holy crap, that was a lot of food. And I didn’t even have turkey! Steve made an awesome bacon-wrapped pork loin so I went for that. And my mama’s world famous sweet potatoes with marshmallows. And Steve’s fabulous apple crisp.
My mom’s neighbor makes these adorable turkeys — mom bought a bunch and sent them to me for my table settings:
Don’t they look sweet?
I had set the table like this:
And then I remembered we were also having butternut squash bisque, so I had to re-do my settings to add the bowl – oops!
The little guys had to move to the chargers:
Here is the aforementioned pork loin; it was so moist and yummy!
And the bisque, which I will be enjoying later:
We have a silicone mold that we used for the cornbread:
They turned out so cute, little leaves and pumpkins.
Huge biscuits, gingery honey carrots, and the sweet potato/marshmallow casserole in the back:
We also had delicious turkey breast made by my in-laws, stuffing and gravy, green bean casserole, spicy lentils (kind of random, but I made them last year and people liked them), garlic mash, sweet potato medallions with caramelized walnuts, and I am sure I am forgetting more stuff, but it was all yummy and most of it was made by my awesome husband. Our cousin J brought a fabulous veggie basket with all sorts of goodies, including my favorite olives from Trader Joe’s.
We had a great time, and the boys had a blast playing with their cousins. We have big bellies and happy hearts. I hope your thanksgiving was a great one!
