Thanksgiving Eats & Oompa Loompas

Hey guys!

I hope you all had a wonderful holiday!

I’m joining in on the fun with Jenn and the crew and sharing all of the deliciousness over the last TWO days!

Yep! I was lucky enough this year to have not one, but TWO Thanksgivings!

Yesterday was lunch with my grandmother, cousin, and sister, Tori…

Turkey, my grandmother’s FAMOUS cornbread dressing, candied sweet potatoes, corn, and green beans, deviled eggs (all un-pictured), and a salad I threw together that ended up being pretty amazing thanks to a key ingredient I picked up at Sam’s Club…

Even BETTER than it sounds!

Along with some sliced red onion, pecans, and a drizzle of balsamic vinaigrette, it was the star of the show…sorry Mr. Turkey! 😉


And for dessert: a slice of pumpkin bread and a fudgey brownie!

Tonight was one VERY filling dinner at my parent’s house…

Yeah, mom out-did herself a bit (like always)!

Crudités, candied sweet potatoes, BLT mashed potatoes, deviled eggs (made healthier by moi…shh, they don’t know!), gravy, ham AND turkey, dressing, cranberry sauce (homemade and the franken-variety for my dad), pumpkin pie, waldorf salad, my Caramelized Onion, Cranberry & Kale Saute, and finally, a chess pie.

So much goodness!

So much so that I could only manage ONE BITE of my mom’s
slice of pie by the end of the night!

Guess I’ll just have to request one for my birthday this year to make up for it! On the other HAND, maybe I should stop and think about the amount of pumpkin I’ve been eating lately…

My hand on the left and Tori’s hand on the right…I have problems!

What’s the BEST thing you ate during Thanksgiving?

Anyone else turning into an oompa loompa? 😉
