Sweats or jammies are the dress-code and a MUST. If you show up in anything other than elastic waist pants, you’ll be turned away at the door until you are properly outfitted.
We did some new things this year for Thanksgiving as we adjusted to our new space. My overall approach, simple and stress-free, stayed the same though.
I did not go all out with decorations because the thought of unpacking another box was very unappealing. I managed to pull out a few things to make the table a little festive though.
I also bought some super cute owl clips from World Market (not an affiliate link) and clipped those to the garland on the table.
The turkey turned out beautifully! And no, your eyes are not playing tricks on you. I broke the turkey into quarters and roasted it that way this year. I did things a little differently with the turkey, which I’ll talk about in another post.
We always have wine with Thanksgiving dinner and keep things simple with a nice Pinot Grigio.
For dinner, we had stuffing, mashed potatoes, turkey (clearly), and collard greens. Along with some amazing gravy to go with everything!
We hung out, ate some great food, and gamed our little hearts out. Perfect holiday!
Our Thanksgiving definitely had a theme to it this year which can be summed up in one word: Lard.
Oh yes. But we’ll chat about that later.
How was your Thanksgiving this year?
