Oh, my gosh! Can you believe it's already December? I'm amazed. These last couple of months have gone by so quickly that I've hardly had time to do anything at all. I haven't done any Christmas shopping or even made a list for Yaya. I actually had to sit down yesterday to make December's menu, something I normally would have done at least two weeks ago. I have got to get my act together.
So, how was everyone's Thanksgiving? Ours was fantastic!
I spent Wednesday at Nana's house making pies and dressing and deviled eggs.
Bailey spent Wednesday getting into absolutely everything! This picture was immediately following an emergency bath after we found her making a huge mess in the living room.
Then I went home and spent the evening working on my broccoli casserole, sweet potato casserole, and my deviled eggs. I spent more than two hours working on deviled eggs that day and I don't even like deviled eggs.
We had a lovely lunch with my family. Nana and Aunt Niecy put this together for the table. It was super cute and the carrots and celery were probably the only thing Bailey ate.
After lunch we headed out to Aaron's parents' house to cook dinner. For those who were curious, my turkey turned out amazing! It was juicy and flavorful and absolutely perfect. The candied pecan sweet potato casserole was pretty awesome as well, though it might have been a bit sweet for some people. Aaron's mom made her mashed potatoes, my all-time favorite mashed potatoes (don't tell Nana and Yaya) and a chocolate pie and a coconut pie with meringue on top. Aaron's brother and his family even got to come. It was a lot of work but totally worth it and we still have leftover casserole in the fridge.
And the best part was Friday morning when I realized I have almost half of a pumpkin pie to myself, my all-time favorite pie. I had a slice for breakfast today.
So now for the much less... um... festive food for the week.
