We were in charge of bringing rolls, veggies and a pie. I started out wanting to bring carrots that I learned how to make at Williams and Sonoma, but then I had a craving for asparagus. On a road trip someone made us grilled asparagus with a yummy sauce. So I tried making the sauce but didn't have the proportions right, so then I remembered TGIF had crispy bean appetizers, so I decided I should try crispy asparagus. I found a recipe online, but it didn't work out how it said it should, so I made up my own. THEY WERE YUMMY! The kids loved them, and Evan who doesn't like asparagus loved them too! I will definitely make them again.
I was too tired to make rolls, so Costco made them for me and then our wonderful tenants brought us a coconut cream pie from the Lion House Pantry. Yummy food! When we got to their house dinner was ready and the table was set, we just needed to pray and eat. Everything was delicious! Moist turkey, mushroom gravy, potatoes, cranberries, stuffing(with uncle ben's wild rice that Cindy's mom made), yams, lots of pies, and rolls.
Lucy tried the potatoes and gravy, and cranberries. She loved them! Cranberries most of all, taking after her daddy. We said what we were thankful for, played cards, soccer, took pictures and just relaxed, but the end of the night we were happy and ready for bed.
It was a great Thanksgiving spent with family. Next year I will try to make my part a little more homemade:)
AND LUCY LOVES HER BOOK!
Day after Thanksgiving
After her nap today she had cuddle and play time with daddy. Now we are getting ready for the park. I love vacation time, especially with great weather !!
