french bread stuffing with swiss chard and caramelized red onions

i love to cook.  this year we decided to do things a bit different.  my daughter sydney is a vegetarian so we have to make sure everything is cooked without animal, ie:stuffing, gravy etc. my hubby and i have the traditional turkey but my daughter has a “turkey” roast, and it actually wasn’t that bad. we usually do the same ‘ole green bean casserole and sweet potato with marshmallows but this year with my new-found cooking skill, im getting kinda fancy.

 i love smells the sounds and the time together with family. that’s what it’s all about for me. being with them and just enjoying a lazy fat pant day full yummy foods and great company. here are some of the recipes that i tried this thanksgiving.



wild mushroom gravy with mash


rosemary roasted carrots


sweet potato souffle


the bird


rustic table settings



next year we will be cooking for the entire fam. the ideas on this site are perfect for a big gathering.

my table did not look this fantastic but these are some ideas i think look great. next year will be different and maybe i will be able to actually post pics of what i made instead of linking the recipes. the day started too early for me, the neighbors kept me awake all night and i was just too tired to even attempt photography.
