We were aiming to eat dinner around 4 so Wyatt could have an enjoyable meal with us before his nighttime routine began. We all shared some of this local brew as an appetizer.
The star of the meal, our fried turkey, was looking good! It was very hard not to pick at it while we were letting it rest. It's hard to resist that crispy skin.
We were finally ready to eat! We put out our spread and sat to admire it for a minute or two before our rumbling stomachs took over. Notice what is missing?.... veggies! We went green free this year, hehehe.
Who knew cranberry sauce was SO easy to make?!
Look at that beauty! All carved up and ready to go.
Can't forget the stuffing! This one is apple & sausage with fresh French bread.
This may look like dog food but it is a kick butt sweet potato casserole. I used my aunt's recipe that she got a long time ago from a neighbor she had in Georgia. I think the key is the thick, sweet, crunchy crust. It was amazing!
While it may appear that Wyatt is extremely satisfied with his meal, he is really rubbing gravy all over his shirt. I gave him a little bit of everything, but he only ate the cranberry sauce and sweet potato casserole. He might have had a bite or two of stuffing, but it was hard to tell in the food shrapnel that was his covering his high chair.
What was on your table for Thanksgiving?
