We had the usual and a few new items. One being these sweet potato stuffed oranges.

Very sweet but I will totally make them again as they were delish. We also had twice baked potatoes instead of mashed. And the ever popular broccoli corn casserole instead of the green bean.

My grandma Thela always makes this jello salad that she refers to as Delicious Salad. I had to make it so that the kids wouldn't miss out! It is very similar to this recipe only she uses 1 large box of raspberry jello and sprinkles sliced almonds on top.

We drank cranberry bellinis and the kids had cranberry cider.

Suki even had a plate of Turkey and dressing. She ate it in 2 and 2.

After all that, we all sat in the hot tub for a bit. It's in the upper 70s and so nice to sit outside. Imagine doing all this baking and cooking in an 80 degree house!

Off to make the whipped cream for the pumpkin pie! I hope everyone is as full as I am.

I was just thinking to myself the other day how boring our Thanksgiving dinner has become because we do the same recipes each year. We all love at least one so that's good but new ones would be great. I might try this sweet potato whatever.. orange thingy. It certainly looks good and might get a few takers. Love
