 Thank you Krosa xx

We decided to celebrate thanksgiving yesterday so people could have a few drinks without worrying about going to work in the morning. I did turkey, roast potatoes, rutabaga, carrots, broccoli, cauliflower and bacon fried Brussel sprouts (Jamie Oliver recipe! Yum), stuffing and turkey gravy. Desserts were pumpkin pie, cheesecake, carrot cake & apple braid.

today DH & I are going to take our boys out for a walk and will probably end up at a playpark somewhere for them before coming home for turkey sandwiches and a mini buffet for supper, the weather looks bright but chilly - perfect day!!

 brussel sprouts are my favorite vegetable.  could eat them for a meal on their own.  LOVE.  i've never had rutabaga. love your dessert choices.  kinda reminds me of the pumpkin cheesecake that cheesecake factory has this time of year.  SOOOO good.

 My boys are crazy about sprouts! They're so weird!!

rutabaga is my favourite veggie - mashed with butter and black pepper...yum!!!

We aren't really a big dessert family but BIL loves my cheesecake so I made that for him, my nephew loves pumpkin pie, DH will eat anything with apples and my boys wanted to make carrot cake with me so we ended up with all 4!! (My sister joked that I was like Monica in Friends when she made different potatoes for everyone!)
