Well, after much planning, cleaning and cooking- Thanksgiving was a success. Or, everyone is REALLY good at lying.
Since we have a little cottage and had 9 guests for Thanksgiving, we had a rather authentic Thanksgiving in our wall tent. I have to say, it was lovely!
I set up a long table to dine accompanied by a buffet table and a crackling wood stove, warming the apple pie. Candles were lit and Christmas lights were hung.
On the menu was: roasted sage, parsley, thyme and rosemary turkey; cornbread stuffing in the slow cooker; creamy mashed potatoes in the slow cooker; a green bean casserole with pimentos, bacon and fresh garlic; butternut squash casserole (tastier than sweet potatoes!); rolls; salads, and much dessert.
To top it off, Chris had his batch of Pumpkin Beer bottled and cold. Mmmm….
I loved having all the family together and boy was it smart pre-cooking some dishes the days before and doing slow cooker dishes. I actually had peace in the kitchen on Thanksgiving.
Here are some photos. Hope your Thanksgiving was wonderful.
