The 4th Thursday in November

Happy Thanksgiving all! It’s officially the holiday season in my book and for me it’s the most wonderful time of the year!

This year for Thanksgiving I did more cooking than I’ve ever done in the past and it was a success. Normally, we have a turkey that we’ll cook or have deep-fried but this year we ordered a smoked turkey from Greenberg; and it was delish! I highly recommend them! Usually, I have my mom make her dressing for me, but this year I did it on my own. And other than forgetting to turn on the oven at first, it came out almost like my moms. Along with the smoked turkey & dressing rolls I also made some southern style greens and tried The Pioneer Woman’s Soul Sweet Taters for the first time. I added some cinnamon, nutmeg & rum extract to the taters and they were to die for!

Our day started off by sleeping in and prepping dinner. That afternoon, we headed out to visit some of my extended family whom I hadn’t seen in a while, which was nice and then headed to his parent’s house to watch some Thanksgiving day football and relax. We finally made it back home around 7:30pm and it was rest & relaxation from there along with some more eating.

The day was filled with much gratitude and I hope everyone had a great day filled with family, friends and food.

I headed to Costco for a tiny bit of Black Friday but that was it. How about y’all? Did anyone do any midnight shopping for Black Friday?

Here’s a peek at my day via Instagram…
