i hope that all of you who celebrated Thanksgiving this week/weekend had a fabulous celebration! we sure did but then we love Thanksgiving!
the day started off in a glorious manner - have a look:
Helga - for the love of gawd, pull your pants up - we got a turkey to cook! (bahahahahaha! that's an inside joke!)
want a tip for making especially tastey drippings for your gravy? line the bottom of your roaster with the usual suspects: onion, celery and carrot. ya, you all already knew that. the trick: fry your veggies in some olive oil and butter first. let your onions caramelize and brown and soften your carrots and celery. it really adds flavour to your gravy!
yum - stuffing! just waiting to go into the bird!
i know a few of you will gag over this but we love our giblet soup! we have it for breakfast while waiting for the bird! so good for you!
here's our little spread - nothing fancy. we are purists when it comes to Thanksgiving. turkey, stuffing, smashed potatoes, brussel sprouts and carrot/turnip mash. and of course - gray-vaaaay!
here's our little table - we decided to have our supper at the kitchen table versus the living room/dining table because it was such a beautiful evening.
yummy in your tummy. we have been eating the leftovers three times a day since - bahahahahahah!
we had a wonderful American Thanksgiving day together. we spent the day being thankful for all of the wonderful things in our lives. and there is much.
what a beautiful ending to a beautiful day!
