Thanksgiving 2014 // A Recap

Thanksgiving 2014 // take a megabite

Change is good, right?! This year Thanksgiving was a different one for me. I stayed in Michigan (instead of flying to Minnesota, like usual) and cooked for my boyfriend, his parents, da roommate, his mom, sister and aunt. So we painted pumpkins gold, bought cloth napkins, planned out the menu, put a wreath on the front door, and lugged tables to the basement bar.

I did a bunch of prep at home. Things like making, drying out corn bread for stuffing, assembling bb bourbon mousse parfaits, infusing vodka with honeycrisp apples for seasonal Moscow Mule-ing, and making cinnamon rolls for Thanksgiving breakfast. (Breakfast is important too! Cinnamon Rolls are people too!)

So we feasted and drank champagne and beers and Moscow Mules. We sat by the fireplace and ate tasty cheese and sugary pecans, and it was fun!

That glorious turkey was cooked by my boyfriend’s roommate. Doesn’t it look majestic? Some other menu items shown above include: cornbread stuffing muffins, funfetti salad, prosciutto-wrapped roasted asparagus, and potato rolls.

Delicious food not pictured: cinnamon sugar donut ice cream, mashed potatoes with butter, cream and goat cheese. Plenty of goodness brought to dinner too like brussel sprouts, homemade cranberry sauce, sweet potatoes, maple whipped cream topped pumpkin pie and more!

This sandwich was so good that I wanted to eat 3 in a row. (I settled for 1 1/2 and was full for hours. I still mustered up a cheese plate, tho.)

I am mildly obsessed with everything about this post and that whole room and lighting/decor situation is a total turn on.

I got all starry-eyed over the juke box (and that lighting!) too. We also had cinnamon rolls that day – they kind of start out an already decadent day on the right foot.
