As of yesterday Kyle is back to work, don't get me wrong I loved having him around but 3 weeks together is a lot lol. I am happy to say that he is already loving it.
I have spent the last few days getting our Thanksgiving menu and Christmas cards prepped. I'm definitely early with the cards but am so happy they are finished so all I have to do it put them in the mail when the time comes.
For our Thanksgiving menu this year it is going to be relatively simple. Since we just moved to Louisiana we won't be with family this year so a simple meal is perfect:
Turkey (I always cook mine in a turkey bag, it cuts down the cooking time drastically)
Mashed potatoes ( I am going to try this recipe this year Carnation Mashed Potatoes)
Gravy ( I use a recipe that my Mom used)
Stuffing (I am going to try this recipe)
Rolls (I am obsessed with this recipe and will probably have to make 2 batches! classic dinner rolls)
Now for dessert I was unsure what I wanted to do. I'm not a big fan of apple pie and I don't like pumpkin pie (yes I know I'm weird) so I went for something Kyle and I would both like:
Ree Drummond's Grasshopper Pie
Doesn't this look amazing?! I can't wait!
I am looking forward to our quiet Thanksgiving.
What are your plans this year?
