Happy Wednesday!!!  I can’t believe tomorrow is Thanksgiving.  We are blessed to be spending the day with my in laws, and I will be cooking a Thanksgiving dinner for us on Friday.  I will share those recipes in the coming weeks, I am very excited!!!  When we had out Turkey dinner earlier in the month I was able to prepare all the dishes that I wanted.

The Herb Roasted Turkey was amazing, and it made a heavenly gravy.  It was my first turkey ever and also the best one I have ever eaten.  Two sides that have to go with every Thanksgiving that I partake in are mashed potatoes and corn.  So, I decided to try some new dishes. 

The mashed potatoes were divine.  Talk about a dream come true for this lover of potatoes!!!  The next dish I tried was the Corn and Bacon Casserole.  Definitely a match made in heaven. However, Mr. W. did not like this dish at all. I am sure it was the onion and sour cream. 

For the most impressive looking dessert ever, I made a Peanut Butter Cookie Chocolate Trifle.

But I feel like we missed something.  What else must I have to make my Thanksgiving dinner complete???  Ahhhh, stuffing!!!  This Sausage Cornbread Stuffing was simply delicious and not one bite went to waste.  It was a hit with Mr Picky pants, Em and also with me, truth be told I had more than serving.  So glad we went with a light dessert.


With love, from our simple kitchen to yours.
