So, I haven’t posted in quite some time, but what better time to update than Thanksgiving! I love Thanksgiving, it is all about the food for me. Spending time at home with my family and enjoying my parents cooking is why it’s so great. There are some amazing recipes within my family and I would love to share a few with you. I have a few of them that are being sent to me sometime over the weekend, so as soon as I receive them, I will share!
My mom’s specialty is her stuffed mushrooms! They are buried in this picture, but this is one recipe I would like to share. As soon as I get it, I am going to make them and take some delicious pictures. Also, my dad’s mashed potatoes are flawless and I am a huge sucker for baked sweet potatoes. Yum! My sister Gina also made homemade dinner rolls, that were more like biscuits, which is even better in my opinion. They were great!
I tried to keep my dessert plate small, but I was still stuffed by the time I was done. We still had to go and eat some over at Derek’s parents house. There was Coconut Custard Pie made with Soy Milk that my mom and I made, then there was Sweet Potato Pie made by my sister Kerri and she also made that chocolate cake, which tasted like fudge, it was really sweet, but had a great texture and I really enjoyed it. I think the Sweet Potato Pie was my favorite though! I have never had it before and I liked how it had a a real subtle flavor. It wasn’t too sweet, but still tasted like a decadent dessert.
At Derek’s house I ate some of the famous Pineapple Surprise made my his mom and some green bean casserole. I also had a piece of sugar free Apple Cranberry Pie which was really tart and delicious. I was over the edge by this point and I went to bed stuffed and I surprisingly woke up hungry.
I love food and I can’t wait until I am hungry again so I can make a Turkey, Stuffing, Cranberry Sauce and Gravy Sandwich!
