This year was my first time hosting Thanksgiving in my own home. I was excited and nervous, but mostly nervous about timing the food and wrangling my kids + 20 family members. Due to that fact, I didn’t get to capture many photos as I’d have liked, besides a few on instagram, so my apologies for the crappy imagery. A little recap to follow…
Prepping everything the night before
Root vegetables ready for roasting…
This party is simply lovely, stretching out the skin of the turkey to make lots of room for BUTTER!
Yes…that is all butter and herbs…
Roasted turkey fresh out of the oven…see the steam rising? #nomnom
Snacks before dinner…cheese from Trader Joe’s, fruit & charcuterie
Me (hi!) carving the turkey the way I learned on YouTube ;)
Table for the adults! (kiddie’s not shown)
And we’re done! Special note to the amaze-balls Sausage + Celery root stuffing recipe borrowed from the beautiful Jessica Burns!
