This year was very special because I hosted Thanksgiving for my family. I have never hosted a holiday event so I was determined to make it an event to remember. I cooked almost all the food myself and Joey fried the turkey! We had a couple pie dough catastrophes, but all in all it was fun cooking together. My menu included homeade citrus cranberry sauce, sausage stuffing, cream corn, green beans and sauteed mushrooms, sweet potatoe casserole, fried turkey, apple and pecan pie and a pumpkin/gingerbread trifle. I felt like I all I did was cook and clean up constantly for 24 hours straight but it was worth it. My family had a great time and the food was yummy!

     Frying the turkey takes lots of hard work...

 The finished product...yum!
