A Thanksgiving Special!

It’s a great idea to always try new things, especially when they seem somewhat difficult.  I’m no cooking expert, but I gave it my all this Thanksgiving…I hope I made Daddy proud!

I made a list of everything that I wanted to make for Thanksgiving dinner:

1. Turkey

2. Stuffing

3. Collard Greens

4. Corn Pudding

5. Mashed Potatoes

I wanted to make sure that it was all from scratch!  So here’s a quick overview of my journey through the kitchen this past holiday.

READY TO EAT!!!

This was only my second time making Thanksgiving dinner and I must say, I was really proud of myself!

Mixed in with good food and a long nap, the next day was filled with a long walk through D.C. and spending quality time with my favorite person!!!

This, by far, has been one of the best Thanksgiving breaks ever!  Family and food…nothing beats that!
