These Are The Days

Smart ~ Writer ~ Mom

All in all…a good day :)

My small turkey came out pretty darn good.

I tried making salt potatoes as a nod to our friends in Syracuse…not bad, but not the greatest.

Fried corn with scallions and bacon..,yum.

Butternut squash courtesy of a recipe from Trader Joe’s…yum.

Stuffing, a la Stove Top…yum.

My parents worked patiently with our girls and made a gingerbread house with yummy frosting, which I may or may not have scraped off already. Multiple times. *yum*

And a thoughtful husband who ran out to the only open grocery store to get some aluminum foil because it’s one of many things I forgot…

Pies in the fridge – pumpkin and chocolate cream. Football on now and Charlie Brown Thanksgiving on tonight.

All in all a good day 🙂

And now? I’m off to the local CVS to get my husband some whipped cream for his pumpkin pie because I forgot it.
I figure it’s the least I can do given the whole aluminum foil thing.

HAPPY THANKSGIVING TO YOU!

  3. Salt potatoes are not really anything are they? Friends from NY told me they were just young potatoes with salt.

    • Well, they are cooked a certain way. Ton of salt in boiling water…but don’t cut the potatoes or else they’ll absorb the salt. Then drain and butter and serve. They’re delicious 🙂

  4. I love making and eating fried corn too!
