Thanksgiving Album 2011

Happy belated Thanksgiving! No recipe today, just a quick share of what was on our table yesterday. I love the feeling of all coming together, throwing the diets out the window and truly enjoying each other. It’s special to be able to feast together but it’s also special just to have each other. A big hug from me to you!

My mom’s (and grandmother’s) dressing…She taught me how to make it this year. Even though it will be a little late, I’ll try to get that posted! It is, without question, what Thanksgiving is all about. The first dish to be requested and the first dish to be empty. The best.


This fresh cranberry sauce is no joke. More to come on this...Delish.

We are all telling Rachelle that she needs to see this cranberry sauce. She’s thinking about it…If she does I promise You will be the first to know. I never liked cranberry sauce till I tried Rachelle’s. This year, I ate it on everything.

My Mom’s green bean casserole…it’s just a classic. Always has been, always will be.

Me, Hil and her sister-in-law Cathy…and Mike too!

Rachelle’s Truffle Mac & Cheese. Enough said!!

RGK Butternut squash…you know my feelings. Had to have it.

My mama. The lady of the day.

RGK Peppered Orange Salad…something light and fresh to cleanse the palette.


My God-Mother Anne and Cathy..Yes, even at 26 you still need a God-Mother!! Even if I don’t, I’m keeping her! :)

Happy family, happy day, happy me. Now, time to get back in to a good workout class before Christmas.
