Aaahh. What a great holiday Thanksgiving is.
This holiday may be all about the food, but the feasting is just half an hour of the entire day, spent pigging out and complimenting the dishes. The fun part is the kitchen time. Everyone helping out, cooking, prepping, anticipating.
There was just four of us, and everyone contributed to the meal. Our dinner consisted of simple, classic favorites. My parents cooked the turkey. Mom made the sweet potatoes and gravy, and Dad made the mashed potatoes. Jenny made the roasted cauliflower (drizzled with olive and lemon, a perfect refreshing side dish to balance out the rich casseroles) and the pumpkin ice cream pie (light and pumpkin-y). I was in charge of the stuffing and the fresh green bean casserole (topped with French fried onions, though the photo below shows the "naked" casserole).
Hope you all had a lovely Thanksgiving! Less than a month 'til Christmas...
