Happy day after Thanksgiving! I hope everyone stuffed their bellies like I did. I had a different holiday this year. With my parents out of town, I spent most of the day with Chad's family and then attempted to make my traditional family dinner. To go along with the Honeybaked ham my parents sent us, I attempted to make cute little portions of my mom's sweet potato casserole, stuffing and homemade cranberry sauce. I'm actually quite surprised at how close I got to the yummy original taste. Although the stuffing was a little dry, I put way too many marshmallows on the sweet potato casserole (I thought it was going to explode in the oven) and we had no turkey, it all turned out OK for our first Thanksgiving dinner just the two of us. Plus we topped it all off with a bottle of wine which fixes anything, right?
I was excited for the leftovers today, but it just didn't taste the same. Maybe there's just something about mom and dad sending you home with five huge containers full of holiday carbs. Or maybe I can't cook as well as I thought I could.
We ended the day snuggling up on the couch, watching "Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs." Love that movie! If you've never seen it and still appreciate awesome animated movies like you did as a kid, then go buy it right now. Don't bother renting it. "Flint you have a call. Flint you have a call." xo.
