This year's Turkey Day celebration will probably go down in the books (for me, at least) as one of the best ever. Besides the obvious reasons for a wonderful day of thanks (time with family, good food and lots of laughs), I want to highlight two of my favorite moments.
The first may seem a little shallow to some but this is the year I found THE dressing recipe for me. I have cooked the dressing the past few years and have not been satisfied with the results. I even tried a recipe from Martha last year and it was too dry for our taste. This year due to a last minute change of plans, I decided to go with a Slow-Cooker Cornbread Dressing from Southern Living. It was super easy to assemble, didn't require an oven and got rave reviews. Yum!
Another highlight of the day was the last minute dance party for the kiddos. It started out as a way to burn energy before the long drives home. It turned into an hour of entertainment for all. Here's a small excerpt with two of my nephews...let me know if you giggle out loud. I do every time I watch it - especially when the second nephew enters the dance. These boy got moves!
Well, that's a little look at our corner of the world on Thanksgiving. What were some of the highlights in yours?
