We had a good Thanksgiving. And quite the feast! Here is my long counter filled with Thanksgiving dinner. I didn’t get a picture of the buffet before everyone went through. That’s why some of the dishes are empty.
That’s not counting the dinner rolls, cornbread, 4 different kinds of pie, and the drinks. They didn’t fit on the counter! You can see everything that was on the menu in my Getting Ready for Thanksgiving post.
We ate dinner at 6. In an effort to keep everyone out of the kitchen, I served some snacks at 3. Carrots, celery, green peppers, ranch dip. 4 different kinds of cheese with 2 different kinds of crackers. And some nuts. It worked to keep the traffic down in the kitchen so those cooking had more room to work.
This is my dinner plate. Yes, I used paper products for Thanksgiving dinner. It was the first time ever. And I loved it! I did use real utensils, though. The cup contains grape juice that I made this summer from our own grapes that we harvested from our own grapevines. It was so good!
As I mentioned, we had 4 different kinds of pies. I made the pumpkin, with the help of my daughter that made the crust. She was making the cherry pie, so it was easy for her to make one more crust. My oldest, married daughter made the apple pie. And my 15 year old son made the chocolate pie! He did a great job, too!
My daughter, that made the cherry pie, decided to have a piece of each kind. Along with the homemade whipped cream that she made. She even whips it by hand, no mixer for her! She didn’t eat it all for dessert, she had to save some of it for latter in the evening. I do think she figured out how to make sure the kind of pie she wanted didn’t run out. lol
Our Thanksgiving was filled with family and great food.
Now onto this weeks menu!
