Well, Thanksgiving is over.... the kitchen is finally cleaned up and I can once again button my pants... whew! It was a great holiday here at the Crafty Corner. My parents joined us and we had a pretty traditional menu. Here's what we enjoyed:
Roasted Turkey (Brined and roasted per Alton Brown's recipe)
Smoked Ham (Hubby's secret recipe)
Gluten Free, Dairy Free Stuffing (made from Udi's bread)
Sweet Potatoes with mini marshmallows (wouldn't be Thanksgiving for my Dad without them)
Green Bean Casserole (you know the one... recipe from the French's onion tub)
Cafe' Salad (my name for spinach, goat cheese, dried cranberries and candied pecans)
Gluten Free, Dairy Free Pumpkin Pie
Gluten Free, Dairy Free Apple Crisp
Washed down with Lucas & Lewellen Rose' of Pinot Noir (and sparkling cider, oh and Coors Light.... nothing says Thanksgiving like the Silver Bullet, right?)
If making this all come together in the kitchen wasn't crafty enough, I added a little touch to the table settings. I stamped a leaf with fall colors, cut it out and added it to a tie of copper ribbon around our napkins. Simple, but a nice addition to the table. My kids didn't know what to do with cloth napkins. Hmmm, maybe I should get them out once in a while....
