So Craig’s brother Dan was back in town for about a week in late September. Their aunt Diane was also in town visiting, so we decided to do an impromptu Thanksgiving dinner. Thanksgiving with Craig’s family always involved lots of friends, who are basically family, so it’s a fun time.
We had all the greatest Thanksgiving foods, Craig’s dad Joe makes the best stuffing in existence. It’s like the ultimate comfort food. YUM! I also acted as his sous chef, so I could steal his secret recipe. Best decision of my life.
It may not be a fun pretentious gourmet type of food, but oh man, this beats the pants off of wild rice stuffing any day of the week. om nom nom
I made a green bean casserole which was delicious. Of course I used canned soup, but mixed it up a bit, I added fresh (sautéed) mushrooms, and used some cream of chicken soup also, but whatever, still tasty and totally classic/cliché green bean casserole.
Craig’s aunt Diane told him that he has to learn to carve a turkey, so here Joe is, showing him how it’s done.
Here’s part of the spread, btw, these are mashed potatoes made with rosemary butter. They were delicious. I made them, of course! 😉
An Italian Thanksgiving wouldn’t be complete without lasagna, right?
