Our Thanksgiving holiday was laid-back and restful, filled with food, friends, fellowship, wine, and pie. We spent our afternoon with our friends Erica and Mike, and Erica's parents. They were kind enough to host us for Thanksgiving this year, and it was out of this world amazing. Mike smoked the turkey and it came out of the smoker full of flavor and awesome. So awesome, in fact, that we're exploring a smoker of our own.
In addition to the amazing turkey we had homemade stuffing, cheddar-baked mashed potatoes, oven roasted glazed carrots, rolls, gravy, pumpkin bread, and pumpkin and apple pies. The meal was great - preceded by some tasty appetizers, including pizza dip and chips and salsa, along with several very tasty white wines. When the foot hit the table we toasted the holiday, good friends, good food, and family. For our first married Thanksgiving it was a blast, and I am beyond grateful we were able to share it with such good friends.
I hope you had a lovely holiday with your loved ones!
