I hope everyone had a lovely Thanksgiving! Ours was a bit belated, thanks to the craziness that is retail life on Thanksgiving Day and Black Friday. Regardless, our meal was lovely and the table was full of family.
We decided to host our very first Thanksgiving together since we weren't able to leave St. Augustine due to work. It was a challenge making everything in our itsy-bitsy kitchen, but we somehow managed it and everything turned out beautifully. Our meal was a little different than the traditional dinner, however. Paul and I are pescetarians, so we don't eat turkey. Our brother Peter cooked one the day before for himself and the other meat-eater, but our meal was all veggie!
Sweet Potato Rounds with Autumn Bruschetta
Baked Brie with Crackers
Slow Cooker Cranberry Sauce
Autumn Squash Soup (served inside a squash)
Spice Roasted Baby Rainbow Carrots
Fresh Green Bean Casserole
Chunky Mashed Potatoes
Stuffing (my favorite!)
We had a mixture of foods made from scratch and some that had shortcuts, all of which came together for a stress-free meal. My favorites had to be the stuffing (always) and the cranberry sauce. It was SO easy! I used this recipe and it made the whole house smell seasonal.
How was your Thanksgiving?
