Happy Thanksgiving to you all! I hope you’ve enjoyed this awesome day with the people you love 🙂
This year, my husband and I attempted our first Thanksgiving on our own. Both of us had never cooked a turkey before, so we knew it would be a great learning experience. And it was!
With the assistance of our parents via telephone, some helpful advice from our friends, and some youtube videos, we were able to successfully prep and cook our turkey! It turned out really tender and moist.
I made some gravy to drizzle over the turkey, but it was very disappointing. Although it was tasty, it was like water. I tried adding more flour to thicken it, but it didn’t work
Instead of making a green bean casserole, I decided to swap the green beans for broccoli – mmmmm!
My husband’s specialty: Carolina Cornbread Pudding – amazing!!
During the holidays, I like to drink sparkling grape juice and apple cider. Since I couldn’t find the sparkling apple cider, I just got the red grape juice 🙂
I also made a small side salad for us, but that picture will come in a bit. For dessert, can you guess what I made? That’s right – cupcakes!! John really loved those pumpkin snickerdoodle cupcakes so much, he requested them for Thanksgiving!

Our table – with food!
Here’s the side salad I mentioned earlier.
Turkey and sides:
Everything all together!
The only thing that did not make it to the plate was a batch of homemade rolls. Unfortunately, they didn’t turn out, so I had to toss them 😦
Well, the kitchen is cleaned so it’s time to eat a cupcake and relax! Hubby and I are going to check out some stores tomorrow morning, so we’ll be heading to bed early tonight!
I hope each and every one of you had a fantastic day! Enjoy the rest of your weekend and happy crafting!
