It was just Matt and I for Thanksgiving.  This year we were both without family and decided to cook a feast for ourselves.  We did some traditional dishes from both sides of the family and had a great Thanksgiving dinner.  Some of the food didn’t turn out very good, but some of it turned out delicious!

Our Menu:

Smoked Turkey

Sweet Potato Souffle

Broccoli Cheese Casserole

Green beans with Ham

Corn Bread Stuffing

Baked Pears with Blue Cheese on Arugula leaves


Gharardelli Triple Chocolate Truffle Cake

Gingerbread cookies

Red Wine


The dogs enjoyed the day as Matt smoked the turkey.

Well Matt and I went home for my birthday and as always had a blast!!!  My whole family and many of my friends all went out to the Oasis for dinner and a live music performance from LC Rocks.  I loved it there.  It was open and spacious and very family friendly.  The rest of the weekend was spent relaxing and enjoying my time off.
