Feast

It was divine...


We feasted with our best football friends this Thanksgiving! We brought JB's signature Yukon Gold mashed potatoes; his egg noodles in chicken stock; my signature roasted diced sweet potatoes tossed with ginger/salt/pepper and mixed with dried cranberries & roasted/salted pumpkin seeds; my super-dark gingerbread/pumpkin pudding/cool whip trifle; and the kids' requisite jellied cranberry sauce in a can. ;-) They did the 22 lb. turkey, corn pudding, dressing [do you call it dressing or stuffing? I guess we had both: I call it dressing outside the bird and stuffing inside the bird :-P], green bean casserole, cheesy potatoes [yes, it was potato-overload, but we all have our fave must-have preparations! this was their son's ;-)], a cake, and two pies. Our other friends brought broccoli salad (LOOOVE! cold with bacon & sweet dressing!), jalapeƱo cornbread, and cookies. What are your must-have holiday dishes?

  1. My girls love that canned cranberry sauce, too (though I can't stand it ;) Dressing and sweet potatoes are a must have for me, while one daughter wants green bean casserole and my husband loves the collard greens!
