Thanksgiving Part 1

Oh, how I love this day of food and giving thanks. This year, we are at our own home, doing Thanksgiving by ourselves. This is the first Thanksgiving dinner Trent and I have ever done. It is almost 2pm, and I have to say, things are going better than expected. This morning, after getting up at 8, I made a very yummy breakfast. I found a recipe, changed it a bit, and really enjoyed it. It is called:

Quick Sticky Buns

Ten pats of butter

Chopped pecans

Brown Sugar

1 container buttermilk biscuits

Preheat oven to 375. In muffin tin, place 1 pat of butter in 10 different cups. Sprinkle crushed pecans over butter (about 1 tbsp per cup). Then sprinkle brown sugar (about 1 tsp per cup). Top each cup with a buttermilk biscuit. Place in over for 8-10 min. When done, immediately turn muffin tray upside down over a baking sheet and tap each cup until sticky buns come out. Eat and enjoy!


We drank hot apple cider with ours! So yummy!

For lunch/appetizers we did some dips and a cracker cheese tray. For dips I did a crab dip recipe I received from my Mom

Crab Dip

1 can crab

1 pkg cream cheese (I used the neufchatel)

1/2 cup mayonnaise

1 tsp lemon juice

1 celery stalk diced

2 green onions diced

lemon pepper to taste

Mix all ingredients together. For best results, refrigerate over night, and use ritz crackers to dip!

For a chip dip I did:

French Onion Dip

1 container low fat sour cream

1 pkg french onion soup mix

Mix together inside the sour cream container. Enjoy!

We also had cheddar cheese, salami, Havarti dill cheese, sliced turkey, black olives, little pickles, wheat thins, and triscuits. Don’t worry, we didn’t eat too much, I am sure I still have room for the big meal (and pie of course).

    I’m glad to see that I’m not the only person who enjoys taking pictures of her food :-) Looks delicious! Beautiful meals remind me of a line (which I first read on my very cheap wall calendar) from Jean Webster’s _Daddy Long Legs_: “It isn’t the great big pleasures that count the most; it’s making a great deal out of the little ones.” A feast like yours might even count as a great big pleasure!
