This may have been my favorite Thanksgiving yet… we did the majority of the cooking on Wednesday (per tradition), and were able to have a very leisurely morning – there was some fireside reading, a family walk and a pretty indulgent breakfast (details coming Wednesday!).
I was in charge of the table this year and went with a modern meets rustic approach, complete with cocoa colored plates and rose gold flatware. Masculine (buffalo check napkins) met feminine (pale pink painted pumpkins) this year, and I couldn’t have been happier with the outcome. Very Style Me Pretty inspired – don’t you think?
While my metallic Sharpies were MIA, I used a plain black one (lame), to write out our menu on a large pumpkin.
We mixed up our menu this year and it was definitely a hit… my sister’s smoked turkey was definitely at the top of the favorites list.
- Smoked Turkey
- Autumn Salad with Horseradish Vinaigrette
- Sweet Potato with Praline Topping
- Vegetarian Mushroom Thyme Gravy
- Mom’s Mashed Potatoes
- Andouille Sausage and Cornbread Stuffing
- Cranberry Conserve with Orange
- Green Beans with Red Wine Vinaigrette
Hope everyone had a great holiday weekend!
