We had a wonderful Thanksgiving. It was nice to stay home and not have to travel. We loved having part of my family with us. This house is a great house for entertaining. We definitely need to invite people over more often! We started off with a few appetizers. The bacon wrapped jalapenos were yummy, though I think next time I will turn the broiler on for a few minutes so the bacon gets a little crispy. Oscar made the yummy spinach bacon cheese dip, some tequila lime hot wings and we had our traditional cheese log and a few veggies to make us feel healthy.
For the main course we had Smoked Turkey (from Whole Hog, it was so good!), Smoked Spiral Cut Ham (from Red, Hot & Blue), Cornbread Stuffing, Nutmeg Potatoes, Green Bean Casserole, Apples & Yams, Strawberry Jello Pretzel salad, Fresh made Cranberry Sauce & Homemade Rolls. For Dessert we had Apple Pie, Pumpkin Pie, Pumpkin Roll, Chocolate Icebox Pie and Baklava.
Here's the table. I got to use my beautiful hand blown crystal stemware that was my mom's grandmothers. We had a variety of sparkling juices to drink. I got the table cloth & center pieces from T.J. Maxx for about $15 for everything!
Jim and Oscar thought about carving the turkey, but they decided they better let Dad do it.
