My husband is the sweetest! He surprised today with an early Thanksgiving Feast! He decided it would be nice to do all the work of preparing the BIG meal today and then relax tomorrow, doing nothing but enjoying the day and eating leftovers. I’m lucky to have such a thoughtful partner who also loves to cook ~ and is good at it!!!When I got home about noon today after running several errands and walked through the front door, I could smell the aroma of a Thanksgiving meal. The turkey had just come out of the oven, the mashed potatoes were almost done and my husband was baking a sweet dessert in the ovenI am in the process of decorating for Christmas and had already removed my fall tablescape, so I quickly scrambled to set the table in somewhat of a festive display. We rarely eat at the table since it’s just the two of us most of the time. We really enjoyed sitting in our dining room and thanking God for all his blessings.Dave gave me this pair of Pottery Barn Deer years ago before we were even married. I still LOVE them today as much as I did when he first gave them to me. The Turkey…what can I say? It tasted FABULOUS!And of-coarse, gotta have the mashed potatoes and gravy. When we were finished eating, there was hardly a dent made. We’ll be eating potatoes for the next week! Maybe feed the neighbors too! Haha.Thanks to Pioneer Woman for all the inspiration she brings to my husband. Here’s one of her recipes Dave has been wanting to try. So yummy!!!Our Menu:
turkey, mashed potatoes & gravy, cranberries (my personal favorite part of the meal), fruit salad, coleslaw, deviled eggs, olives & dinner rolls.
Normally we have stuffing too but since it was just the two of us this year, we already had too much food. We had a really fun day and I’m glad my husband wanted to go ALL OUT! I love the holidays spent with family and since that couldn’t happen this year, it was still nice to have our own little celebration.
I hope your Thanksgiving is a very special one whatever you are doing and whom ever you are with.
