My Thanksgiving

9:00 AM

Yesterday was Thanksgiving and I had a great day. Here's how it went.

We slept in, until 11:30! We didn't plan it but I had been so run down the past few days and Matt had been tired from work that we just slept in that late! Anyway, we ate lunch and then at about 3:00pm we got the Turkey all ready to get in the oven! After we put the turkey in the oven, we made our stuffing and put it in the fridge. We only have one oven so we decided to make the turkey first and then put the stuffing in the oven. We cooked the bird for roughly four hours and then switched the bird for the stuffing. Towards the end of the stuffing cooking cycle, we made these great instant mashed potatoes. We made two packets; one of buttery potatoes and one of roasted garlic potatoes (best mixed potatoes ever!). Then we made the corn and then it was time to serve it up!

Here is how it turned out:

Our wonderful dinner!

Besides making dinner, we also watched football. I am an Eagles fan and they crushed the Cowboys, which made me very happy. Then we watched the TCU @ Texas game and that game ended up being a blowout as well; TCU won.

Overall it was a really good day, This was mine and Matt's first official Thanksgiving dinner together. We spent Thanksgiving together last year but we didn't go all out like we did this year. It was really fun.
