I’m officially domesticated. This weekend the Hubs and I had our Post-Thanksgiving Thanksgiving dinner and it was FAB-U-LOUS! It was our first “dinner party” together and a freaking loved it. I want to do it all the time–I’ve discovered that I love cooking! So, we invited about 15 people over to our little place and I think everyone had a great time! Dee came over early to help me cook, and together we prepared:
Turkey & Stuffing
Slow Cooked Ham w/ brown sugar and pineapple
Green beans & Garlic
Sweet Potatoes in a brown sugar sauce
Ahhhhh it was so good. The vegetables were so good I could have totally even done without the meat. Not that I wanted to because the turkey and ham were freaking AMAZING, but you know. We also made it semi-pot luck, so people brought drinks, buns, salad, dessert, etc which made it nice and easy. Ah. I think next on the agenda will be a Fondue party with Dee, Vibes, Twin, K and my newish amazing friend [JW]. She’s freaking awesome and has a boyfriend that lives 20 minutes away from my parents so I foresee many glorious road trips!
Anyway, I’ve decided I’m not afraid of Martha Stewart anymore (I find her very intimidating– I mean, look at her eyes. She has the “CRAZY” eyes) and I’ve done my first big dinner. Bring on the dinner parties. Here are a few pictures from the dinner:
