A New Thanksgiving
Second Thanksgiving without Mom. No going over to Mom and Dad's house anymore for the holidays. Holly and Mike went over to Mike's family, Lisa worked, and we decided to start our own traditions...stayed home and cooked up all the food. I did my first turkey (had no reason to ever do one having Mom and Dad's house to go to), did a cranberry dipping sauce; a sweet cornbread pudding; brussels sprouts with bacon, onion, and balsamic vinegar; gravy, mashed potatoes, and a pumpkin cake. Cooked all new things this year and they are all new favorites and keepers...DELISH! Mom and Dad would have been proud. They would've laughed a little, but proud. Have a mexican dish to use up the rest of the turkey, so not throwing away any food, Dad! Hope everyone had a happy Thanksgiving and enjoyed old and new traditions.
