Yes, I'm late... I know. But its been a busy couple of days for me, as I'm sure its been for you too... I hadn't touched a computer keyboard since last Wednesday until yesterday morning. That has to be a record! It was actually nice. So those of you who have emailed me these past couple of days, you will be receiving a response shortly. I'm slow. Sorry, trying to get back on track here. Its the holidays, thats what they do to us.
This past Thanksgiving Thursday was my first time cooking a feast. A feast for five from scratch. What was I thinking!? Just kidding, it was great! And my recipe-reading skills even surprised me! But even more impressed was my daddy. He said I am now officially ready to marry. Then I reminded him I just celebrated three years of being married, thank you very much. Ha ha! Everything was delish! I was beat by the end of the night, but it was all worth it. Laughed until my stomach ached because my dad had jokes, ate soo much that I wasn't able to sleep well that night, but I would do it all over again. In. A. Heartbeat.
I am no chef, but did have a juicy turkey on the table alongside with stuffing, mashed potatoes, gravy, corn, green beans & sweet potatoes (a huge hit, thank you Cherisse for the recipe). Oh yeah & how could I forget the pies! Pumpkin, Lemon Cheesecake (my husbands fav) + Pecan. Marie Calendars makes them soooo good ;) Maybe I'll attempt a pie for Christmas!
Then, Friday thru Sunday I was asked to document a youth retreat. It was full of blessings from above and will be sharing those images soon!
I cant take the credit for whipping up the deviled eggs below, but I have been accused of eating most of them! ;) A big thanks to my brother David for helping me out with the appetizers. Love you!!! I had planned to take pictures of everything, but I was exhausted by the time I was done... hey, God-willing, there will be a next time.
