How is it that I ended up making the turkey gravy and my grandmother’s ham gravy today, and I didn’t eat either one?
Also…I had never made turkey gravy before, so I’m not sure they should have let me :) But both of them turned out well!
We had an impressive spread today! And lots of family and friends, which is what I love.
Let’s see if I can remember it all:
- deep fried turkey + gravy
- ham + my Mammaw’s ham gravy (yum)
- mashed potatoes
- sweet potato/apricot/pecan bake
- green beans with peppers
- broccoli salad
- deviled eggs
- baked apples
I had a little of everything, but did keep myself to only one plate! I knew dessert was coming and wanted to save some room ;)
My mom’s fudge pie.
One reason I love the holidays.
It actually turned out much runnier than normal, which was strange because the outside looked done! It was almost like a lava cake.
After we all ate, we sat around and watched some football and laughed and talked and spent time with family.
Around 6 tonight, we talked to my sister and her husband that are in Spain on Skype – that was nice to get to talk to them today since they missed out on Thanksgiving.
We all ended up having random leftovers tonight, but it was all good.
I heated up a few tiny pieces of ham, 1 roll, and had some salad for dinner.
My mom, sister and I are going shopping tomorrow morning, so I’ve got to get in bed soon! We won’t be going out at 5 am, but we always shop on Black Friday – I can’t wait!!!
Happy, happy Thanksgiving to everyone!!!
