Between 2 and 9 o’clock, I had tastes, sips, or pours of all of the following – handpicked by Matt’s mom based on my beer page and preferences. I LOVED them all!! Sooo spoiled:)
The weather was so beautiful today; Matt and I went for a jog this morning and then we sat outside, just drinking and talking for a good part of the afternoon. Twas glorious and I’m so thankful to be living in the South!
Around 4:30, we enjoyed appetizers: Caitlin’s healthy spinach-artichoke dip (highly recommended) and a local white cheddar.
By 7, it was Turkey time!
He was quite juicy.
Brown butter mashed potatoes,
A new twist on mashed sweet potatoes this year – Matt’s mom topped these with a crumble of oats, pecans, and coconut, and of course, marshmallows.
Pecan brussels based on Jenna’s caramelized brussels,
Heaven on a plate.
And the star of my life, a chocolate pumpkin pie with pecan crust, served with brandy whipped cream and local maple ice cream.
This did me in. Sweet dreams [of more pie tomorrow].
PS: sorry about photo spacing, I’ve edited the post three times with no luck:(
