A Gobble-icious Thanksgiving

Friday, November 23, 2012

I had a very nice and relaxing Thanksgiving. Started my morning baking blueberry muffins and watching the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade. While waiting for the turkey to bake, my family and I watched football and played Snackopoly. Snackopoly? HaHa Yes! The other day when I found the Hostess stickers (I received them you guys!), I also found a vintage Little Debbie Snackopoly (like Monopoly) game. It was only made and distributed to employees that worked at Little Debbie and not the public. I bought this one cheap to re-sell in my Etsy shop, but it's so cute I may keep it for myself. HaHaHa

For Thanksgiving I had turkey, cornbread dressing, peas, sweet potato casserole w/marshmallows, and rolls. For dessert, I picked up a sweet potato pie from Tee Eva's. It is the best sweet potato pie. Tee Eva's ships out of state if interested. They have been featured in Elle, Williams Sonoma and countless other magazines & tv shows. Pre-order your pie if you plan to pick one up from the shop and have cash on hand to pay for it. I'm a full, thankful and happy girl right now. How was your dinner?

Looks like a fabulous Thanksgiving. You know, I have yet to try marshmallows on top of yams...I may have to try that for Christmas or Thanksgiving next year. :)

Sweet potato casserole with marshmallows????!!!!! That just sounds very strange to me. Blueberry muffins on the other hand - yum! Sounds like you had a wonderful time with your family. Have a wonderful weekend xo

Omg looked like a fantastic Thanksgiving meal Kim! :) You know.. I never tried sweet potato casserole with the marshmallows. I always wonder what that'll taste like! To me, most likely like a dessert? Either way, looks amazing! :)

Wow. These are so delicious. I like your marshmallow decoration. I’m using strawberries and mint leaves all the time for decorations. Thanks for giving new ideas.

I'm so glad to hear that you had a happy Thanksgiving, Kim - and I have to admit, I'm drooling a little looking at all the photos of your delicious meal! Canadian Thanksgiving came and went about a month ago, but Ilike to celebrate any time there is a holiday going on, so my husband and I went out to dinner last night. We didn't have a very traditional meal, though, since we chose a Thai restaurant :) I wish we could have finished the evening playing Snackopoly, I mean seriously, how cute is that!

Have a beautiful day and lovely weekend!

LOVE the snackopoly! So cute!! Vintage games are so much fun to play!! And any version of Monopoly is awesome :))

I spent Thanksgiving with a friend and her family. We cooked A LOT. We even made our own rolls and butter! Crazy! Never met a family that cooked quite that much...but...it was delicious! :)

p.s. This is Alejandra from "Musings in Red", but I'm commenting from our new blog, "Parasol Dreams" !! :)

Wow, looks like the most yummilicious Thanksgiving feast ever! Since we don't celebrate in SA - I have a question, does everyone only make these dishes specifically on Thanksgiving day or also anytime during the winter months?

Cambria said...

Mmmm that looks like my plate yesterday :) Love the holiday treats!
