Good Gravy

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
  • stuffing
  • rolls

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 ;)

And then.

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.

And more pie  ;)

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!!!
