Usually for Thanksgiving, we travel to Illinois to visit family and enjoy an amazing 35-course meal. Okay, I may be exaggerating on the number of courses, but not by much--it's an amazing spread! This year, we decided to stay at home for Thanksgiving so we missed out on our usual feast!
I was looking forward to making Thanksgiving dinner on my own. I've never done it before, and I thought it would be fun to do. It would only be for my husband and daughter, so I figured I didn't need to go overboard. I'd keep it somewhat easy.
My husband had a different idea. He didn't want me to go through all that trouble for just the three of us. He also wanted to be around friends too! So he finagled an invite from some friends of his. I was a little disappointed at first, but spending time with friends sounded like fun! I decided to make a great side dish!
But our friends had things so well in hand that they only wanted us to bring drinks. I did throw together a dairy-free dessert since my husband is trying to cut dairy out of his diet. While I was disappointed not to try anything new, I did have a great time with friends!
Isn't that what the spirit of Thanksgiving is about? Okay, it's about the food too, which was fabulous!
I hope you had a fantastic Thanksgiving dinner as well!
