Our Thanksgiving day was simply wonderful. The day was very different for us not having Hannah, Greg, and Emily at home. We shared with what family we did have and are very thankful for all of them.
This year, Steve put our turkey into a brine. It was a lot of fun preparing days before the meal would be shared.
The turkey was filled with vegetables, oranges and fresh parsley, sage, rosemary and tyme. It looked beautiful and the meat just fell off of the bones. Steve was thrilled with the results. And… so was everyone else. Milo sure positioned himself well, hoping something would fall.
This is a favorite stuffing for my family, since it was my mom’s recipe. Carrot, celery, onions and apples. Awesome!
Mashed potatoes with fresh garlic and freshly grated nutmeg, lots of butter, salt and pepper. Here comes the gravy!
Green bean casserole. Everyones favorite!
Kale salad; I was able to pick the kale the morning of Thanksgiving. I just love when that happens.
White meat or dark?
We also had an amazing selection of rolls and desserts provided by Aunt Amy and Uncle Tony. Aunt Eddie and Uncle Steve made their awesome Artichoke Dip, that was gone before I even got to take a picture. Trust me, it was wonderful!
After dinner and the foot ball game was over, Steve made one of the biggest fires we’ve ever had, out in the back yard. It was enjoyed by all.

Sisters! Steph and Anna
Beautiful Girls winding it down. Well at least one of them is.
Love birds in my kitchen.
I think someone is a little glowy.
Nothing like having your own bottle.
So as you can see it was a wonderful day. Filled with great food and good people.
Steve and I have seen these turkeys almost every morning in November. They pretty much hang out at a home on Beach road. We even witnessed them flying in one morning, coming in like small helicopters. Our count every morning was 15 turkeys. I was thinking that I should remind them that Thanksgiving is coming, and they should really think about that. The week of Thanksgiving they were gone; nowhere to be seen. The day after Thanksgiving, they were back! I guess they really didn’t need me to tell them anything.
We hope that you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving, filled with blessings.
