be our guests!

Version 2

Six months have passed and there’s been another first!

The Newlyweds had their first Thanksgiving as Mr & Mrs!

And we were humbled to be invited as their “Guests!”

We missed all those who could not be with us.

We had a lovely holiday together and were so verily grateful to have been included!

So many special touches.

A table beautifully set.

We started the day with the Mrs’ family coffee-cake (cleverly cut into the shape of leaves) and the Mr’s favorite Thanksgiving breakfast…PUMPKIN PIE!

All this yumminess while we watched one of my favorite traditions of the day…

The Thanksgiving Day Parade!

SANTA, I KNOW HIM!!!

Following the parade it was time for their first Tom-Turkey to check-in to the oven!

Thank goodness they still make these!

Round two of Mr & Mrs’s delightful treats for the day, stylishly presented on the card-table serving area, would be…

the ever-famous Old English & Roka Blue Cheese Spread served with “just a few” Triscuits, Bacon wrapped cinnamon bread-sticks, and chocolate-dipped cornucopias filled with fresh fruit! YUMMY!

The perfect treats while we watched great football and waited until at last…

The Pop-Up Timer never fails! Super moist & delicious!

Roasted vegetables, mashed potatoes, cranberry sauce and Mr’s superb family-famous stuffing!

And the most wonderful Slow Cooker Creamed-Corn!

3 (15.25-ounces) cans whole kernel corn, drained
1 cup milk
1 tablespoon sugar
1/4 teaspoon pepper
8 ounces cream cheese, cubed
1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, cut into thin slices

Place corn into a slow cooker. Stir in milk, sugar and pepper until well combined. Without stirring, top with butter and cream cheese. Cover and cook on high heat for 2-3 hours.
Uncover and stir until butter and cream cheese are well combined. Cover and cook on high heat for an additional 15 minutes.
Serve immediately.

A parade of YUMMY deliciousness!

  1. Wow! Thanks for sharing. Love looking at the food and enjoying the traditions. Think in some ways I’m a little relieved we don’t have Thanksgiving at this time of year. All the focus for us in on Christmas and, being Summer, all the children have finished school and we had the joy of being at our Granddaughter’s Graduation from Primary to Secondary. They had the most inspirational service at her catholic primary school. The emphasis was entirely on the importance of the Christ Light being bright in all the lives of these children to point others to see in their journey that their lives have a focus beyond just the material aspect of life. (I believe you and your family illustrate this so beautifully. Thank you!
