The Meal

I am so excited. Okay, so at first, and earlier this week, I wasn't so excited, but now I am. We are staying in Omaha for Thanksgiving, and making a feast just for the two of us. When you think of holidays you think of huge meals and the whole family, and we will totally miss our fan, that is for sure. But, sometimes you don't have a choice, so we are doing it in our beautiful home, just with one another. Cody has been excited about whipping up some yumminess for weeks. Really, he has been scoping out recipes and getting me to forget that we don't get to go home. He is making it FUN that we get to do a holiday with just he and I. I am so blessed to have a "be positive no matter what you are doing" attitude of a hubby. He sure is amazing. I love that he is my best friend, and I am his. I look forward to a weekend of nothing but him. We have our Black Friday shopping stores scoped out and hopefully find some good deals! We are just gonna eat ourselves silly one day, and shop ourselves silly the next!

Grandma's Rolls
Sweet Potato Filled Ravioli or Turkey Noodle Soup (just can't decide! Cody's homemade noodles:))
Cranberry Sauce
Delightful Mashed Potatoes
Whipped Sweet Potatoes
Homemade Stuffing (with no chunks!)
Brined Turkey Legs (We did this last year...perfect!)
Apple Crisp with whipped cream

I hope your plans are as fun as ours! Happy Thanksgiving, be thankful no matter where you are or what you are doing!:) Take it from me, it is way better that way!

Happy Thanksgiving to you! Sounds delicious and so fun! Next year you'll be enjoying your meal each with a baby on your lap :)
Hey - did I tell you already - my favorite twin book (and I read a LOT) is Mothering Multiples by Karen Gromada. Must read (while resting! Save your energy! :)
