Thanksgiving re-cap

 We made the executive decision to not travel through weather for Thanksgiving and just eat at home.  With the exception of it being too late to thaw a turkey (which we have several in the freezer), everything else I not only had at home, but most everything I grew! I'm pretty proud of the fact I was able to throw a feast together without going to the store. 

My own potatoes and turnup mashed with garlic butter I made.  Homegrown squash with syrup from our Amish friend. Tabouleh with the parsley, green onions, mint and garlic I grew. Cranberries from the Maine cranberries I picked with the kids.  And stovetop stuffing I had on hand and chicken I had marinated and frozen enough when they were on sale a few weeks ago. Then I made apple pie with apples we picked. And we had apple juice I made from said apples too. I had homemade rolls that I made and froze, but forgot to pull.  Plus homemade whipped cream. Not a traditional thanksgiving, but a Thanksgiving to remember.  

He's winking here.

Then we had a wonderful time walking off our feast in our backyard.

And Thanksgiving ended with the BEST grand finale. Audra gave me these lists she wrote on her own.  Best gift ever!
