My husband and I decided to host Thanksgiving this year and make everything from scratch. Now maybe this isn’t a big deal to some but we both come from families that believe in short cuts, usually involving packaged items. No disrespect to our mama’s of course, when the hubs and I get an idea we give it 150% no matter how much lunacy is involved. We prepped throughout the week, tested our recipes which involved the hubs eating about 6 buttermilk biscuits in a row, set the table with some sparkle and I even whipped up a batch of homemade cloth napkins for the occasion, overboard? Maybe. Worth it? Yes! We were blessed to share the holiday with family and some of our dearest friends.
Test run of the buttermilk biscuits, hubs decided he would need one fixed with an egg and bacon to determine if they were truly worthy of our Thanksgiving table.
Cranberry sauce above and fried turkey below, we're converts to the fried turkey - it was the best turkey we've had!
We ended a good night of fellowship and the giving of thanks for all the blessing we have by the fire with dessert and wine. A perfect ending to our first round of hosting Thanksgiving together.
