I hope everyone in the USA had a nice Thanksgiving Day! This year, I spent it at home with my hubby and 4 children and we had the traditional roast turkey, stuffing, green bean casserole, roasted red potatoes and rolls. I've never been a big fan of cranberry sauce so I don't serve it. But of course if anyone in my family expressed an interest in it, I would serve it. :) I also served Key Lime Pie, Sweet Potato Pie and Apple Pie a la mode (with a scoop of vanilla ice cream). It was all delicious! Surprisingly noone fell asleep afterwards!
I called my parents to wish them a Happy Thanksgiving. It appears they were taking it easy this Thanksgiving, too, but were invited by some of their neighbors to dinner in town. I think it's great that restaurants are open on Thanksgiving Day to serve a turkey dinner. Many places close on Thanksgiving Day.
This year our town hosted a Thanksgiving Dinner in the Park. We live in a small town, but what a nice gesture to have dinner in the park! I think this may have been the first year that our town has done that as I don't recall it occurring last year. So yeah, it was a great Thanksgiving Day.
Now on to the downhill slide towards Christmas!
