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.

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.
