We had most of the traditional Thanksgiving dishes, including turkey (smoked overnight in my in-laws’ smoker), sweet potatoes, stuffing (not cooked in the turkey, so I suppose it’s just dressing), kale salad (okay, so that’s not super traditional), homemade rolls, mashed potatoes, and pie.
We realized halfway into the meal that we forgot to make green beans. Oops. Do you think we forgot any other Thanksgiving staples?
Before we ate, my father-in-law read a Bible passage on thankfulness. After lunch, we spent the afternoon chatting and playing Bananagrams and various card games (euchre, up and down the river, and presidents).
My mom made a festive vegetable plate. Isn’t it adorable?
