A Successful Feast

Well, I finally have a minute to reflect on Thursday! It was so wonderful to have spent the day surrounded by loved ones. I am especially grateful, that Jason was able to be with us. We had a scare Tuesday when the truck he was driving to Ohio quit. Thankfully, a wonderful mechanic worked diligently to repair the truck, so that he could join us for Thanksgiving.

I spent most of Wednesday preparing the food for Thursday. Almost everything could be made ahead of time, so that all I had to do on Thursday was place items in the oven. I definitely didn't want to spend the entire day Thursday cooking and missing the fellowship of the day.

So what was on the menu for the day...

Breakfast
  • Pumpkin cream cheese and Bagels
  • Fresh Fruit with Pumpkin Dip
  • Fresh Hot Apple Cider (This made the entire house smell heavenly!)

Thanksgiving Dinner

  • Turkey and Gravy
  • Herb Stuffing
  • Sweet Potato Casserole
  • Butternut Squash Casserole
  • Corn Casserole
  • Green Bean Casserole
  • Mashed Potatoes
  • Homemade Yeast Rolls
  • Cranberry Sauce with Walnuts

Dessert

  • Pumpkin Cheesecake
  • Apple Pie
  • Pecan Pie
  • Pumpkin Pie

It was such a wonderful day, filled with so many blessings. I have much to be thankful for this year! God is Good!
