Thanksgiving Highlights

Alriiiiiiight everyone. Alright.

I did not take that many pictures of food. But I captured some key moments.

KEY.

This first pictures shows how well my family knows me.

They got me these.

Brought to you (me) by Uncle Charlie and Aunt Jennifer.

 

Their exact words were “These made us think of you.”

Well played.

The cinnamon ones tasted like a churro. The best way I can describe the white chocolate peppermint ones are “not horrible”.

Let’s get down to the heart of the manner. Thanksgiving dinner.

After about 3 Angry Orchard Apple Ginger ciders, several handfuls of goldfish, and some smashcake (to the civilized world: chess squares), linner (lunch+dinner=linner) was served! Grood (great+good)!

Everybody prepare yourselves.

CALM DOWN.

 

I feel I really need to point out that there isn’t a single vegetable not living in a casserole.

List of casseroles:

Spinach casserole

Corn casserole

Sweet potato casserole

Mashed potatoes

Macaroni and cheese

AND OF COURSE

Stuffing

Soooooo…check and mate.

Sean and I kind of shared the turkey leg.

I just wish someone had made dessert.

OH WAIT EVERYONE MADE ALL OF THE DESSERTS.

ALL OF THEM.

 

I had pecan pie and ice cream.

Then I had a coma.

Here’s a pre-coma pick of the adorable Lowers.

booboobooo.

 

Then we watched the Redskins beat the Eagles (YEAAAAHHHHH) and Uncle Blake made me a PEPPERMINT White Russian.

What’s that? Yes! It was tasty and amazing!

Glory Be.

 

After the game, I made a sandwich. Though “sandwich” doesn’t quite describe it. I made a marvelous post-thanksgiving feast bread structure.

BOOM.

 

Ingredients of Structure:

Corn Casserole

Mashed Potatoes

Macaroni and Cheese

Dark Meat Turkey

Cranberry Sauce

Some Garlic Cheese Spread

ALL ON A TOASTY STRUCTURE.

Like I said…BOOM.

Then things get a little crazy.

It’s all a haze of leftovers and alcohol. A lot of each.

A couple of other highlights:

Exhibit A: Homemade vanilla ice cream with peppermint Kahlua and crumbled peppermint chocolate sandwich cookies!

Cute Aunt Maggie in the Background!!!

 

MORE COOKIES.

Thanks, Aunt Jennifer!

 

And that’s all I’ve got, bibbles.

Not pictured: Lots of leftovers, wine, cider, beer, Tex Mex, Margaritas, guilt, and about 4 pounds.

PM me if you want pictures of the 4 pounds.

Special thanks to Aunt Margaret and Uncle Blake for opening up their home to everyone and making Thanksgiving so fun and special. The Lowers thoroughly enjoyed themselves.
