Thanks for taking the time to come by and visit Day #22 of Art Every Day Month!
The scarves were done and waiting for the girls when they arrived for Thanksgiving Day. Pretty happy campers!
Hannah brought a special guest for Thanksgiving – a pet snail! I know, gross. But we are goin’ with her love for all creatures, even the disgusting ones. She set up a little house for him and picked leaves from the garden for his special dinner.
We had lots to do, so we were very glad we’d made the pies yesterday! Here’s the Pecan – Cranberry I was too tired to photograph yesterday. I only had a tiny piece, but I think I prefer just a straight pecan. I don’t know. I may have to have another piece just to make sure!
Before we got too far into cooking Andra and the girls made darling turkey place cards. They turned out so cute! Hannah did the cutest lettering for the names!
The thing that took the longest was our Orange Sweet Potato cups, an old family favorite. Bea helped me juice the oranges while the sweet potatoes baked.
Hannah can never wait to get her hands on them!
We have nearly the same thing every year:
Tofurkey stuffing mashed potatoes/gravy sweet potato cups graber olives broccoli rolls
But then we switch up the desserts depending on what everyone is feeling like. Today was Hannah’s 8th birthday in addition to Thanksgiving, and she ordered a Birthday Pumpkin Pie with tons of whipped cream. Mr. Tattered loves his cherry pie, and then of course the Pecan-cranberry was new this year.
Hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving full of friends, family and bonding over a great meal! Tomorrow I get back to my diet!
