Thanksgiving is in the Books

I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving!

I made what was supposed to be pumpkin bars that turned out to be pumpkin cake for my husband and his coworkers who were all stuck working the day shift on Thanksgiving. Rolling with the flow, I put some fluffy icing on it and deemed it cake, which apparently tasted just fine. No leftovers came home.

I spent Thanksgiving Day at my mom's house along with my sister and brother-in-law. We had a feast that I wasn't expecting. Since we celebrated the Sunday before Thanksgiving, I thought I was just taking some cake over and hanging out for the afternoon.

Mom had other plans. She made turkey, stuffing, green beans, hot rolls, candied yams, and all the fixin's. My sister and brother-in-law made Mexican corn and pumpkin bars. I brought strawberry bunt cake. That's it. I would have brought more, but Mom said she and my sister had everything under control. They sure did.

After a feast of a lunch, we discussed Christmas and strategized where to put Mom's tree this year. We had a nice visit, and I finally left around 5:00 p.m., so I'd be home in time to make dinner for my hubby who had to work all day.

Don't worry, I made him a Thanksgiving feast on Black Friday. I made turkey (see photo), corn, mashed potatoes and gravy, green bean casserole, hot rolls, and pumpkin pie. He was excited to have turkey because he didn't get any last year due to his work schedule and the fact I'm not a big fan of the bird myself. He's always happy to see pumpkin pie, but he especially loves my home-made pie. I make it with love, you know.

How did you spend your Thanksgiving? Did you travel or stay close to home?
