Sweet-potato pie and stuffing, stuffing, stuffing (did I mention stuffing?)
Peace-on-earth sweet potato pie
I was enjoying a looong shower today (it's my birthday, that was my big request) and I heard that boppy song from A Charlie Brown Christmas on the shower radio—you know, the one where all the kids are doing a happy dance around the piano. That song always makes puts me in a good mood—you, too?
It was a beautiful day.
We had our first fire in the outdoor fireplace.
Max ate straight from the gravy dish—we had to let him!
Sabrina fed Max.
We ordered a bunch of side dishes from Whole Foods. My mother-in-law, her boyfriend, Phil, and his son, Jeremy, brought the turkey, the above good-looking (and tasting) sweet potato pie and mushroom stuffing. I basically had the stuffing for dinner. Sabrina loves turkey. Max is all about sweet-potato anything. When he was a baby, he ate so much of the Gerber pureed sweet potatoes that his skin turned a lovely shade of orange.
Hope everyone had a fab day, too. What's your favorite Thanksgiving dish?
