My mom just told me that there are going to be 16 people TOTAL at our Thanksgiving feast on Thursday night! SIXTEEN! We've never had so many people at Thanksgiving before! Well...maybe we have- but it has been a while! All of Joe's family & my family are coming together for this holiday. I am EXCITED!!! I am seriously excited about the FOOD. Mama I is an AMAZING cook. I am taking elastic waistband pants with me to Reston because I plan ON EATING!
The Menu for Thursday is:
*A 21lb Turkey
*Green bean cassarole
*Sweet potato cassarole
*Mama I's fresh cranberry medley
*Stovetop stuffing (for the picky people)
I'm only allowing myself Thursday to go wild with the food...but it's going to be hard! Then for dessert I know that she got two different pies & she also always orders these cookies from Bissinger. They're chocolate covered oreos with little sugar decorations on them. It's a tradition- she gets them EVERY year!
Don't they look amazing?!?! It's going to be hard to stay away from them for the rest of the time I am at home! Anyway, have a VERY happy thanksgiving! Until next week- xoxo!
