We Are Thankful

Kyle had to work on Thanksgiving this year, so since we couldn't travel to be with the family on Turkey Day, I decided last minute to prepare my first Thanksgiving feast for just the 3 of us.

I made a quick, last minute trip to Bi-Lo and found a huge turkey on sale for just over five dollars. I had no clue how to cook a turkey, but thought for 5 dollars, we could give it a shot! Along with the turkey, we fixed dressing, mashed potatoes, green bean casserole, and apple pie from scratch. Kyle actually ended up fixing the turkey, and even though it was still partly frozen when we put it in the oven, it turned out pretty good for two first-time turkey cookers! We all really enjoyed our small little Thanksgiving together!

Thanksgiving leftovers?
This was the only picture I got...bummer...Zachary LOVED getting to eat his first Tukey dinner FIRST-hand and we were fortunate enough to drive up to Knoxville the next day to join the rest of Kyle's family for a second meal. Again, no pictures...bad Mommy!
