I loved, LOVED, LOVED having my family here for Thanksgiving. It's the first time we've had T-day dinner at home since we married in 1995.
Thursday morning we brought Michael over to the KC Hall to work the free dinner our church puts on every year. I missed working it this year but Kim said she'd like to come help, so maybe next year???
When we got home we got right to cooking. I was very pleased to find that Kim and I work well in the kitchen together. She just went right to work on anything that had to be done and quickly adapted to the quirks of my oven.
We partook of a gorgeous turkey stuffed with whole cloves of garlic and rosemary.
And of course we had to have our relish tray (all the olives were gobbled up, wah!).
We left a bit of room for our choice of fresh blueberry or pumpkin pie (ty, Kim!), or apple pecan cheesecake.
The older kids did the dishes, leaving the pots and pans for us adults...but we had the kitchen spic and span in no time!
We ended the night with a game of Last Word. No, it wasn't an argument between Michael and me...we actually played the game. Kim won both rounds, if I remember correctly, which didn't surprise any of us. LOL
Overall it was a very exciting and wonderful Thanksgiving. I really have so much to be thankful for!
