Southern Family Thanksgiving

Oh, what fun!

Some photos from the gathering.

My daughter-in-law made these fabulous bacon-wrapped stuffed dates:



The kids dish up their plates first, and go to the Cousins Table:

These are all the desserts waiting to be unveiled:

AdventureMan did the roasted root vegetables on this table πŸ™‚


Re-telling old family stores – so much laughing!

  2. You know, I gave that some thought; I try not to post a lot of hog related foods, but then again, it was a very American holiday and pork is very Southern American. Mostly we try to be respectful, LOL.

    Once, my husband was escorting a group from a Middle Eastern country visiting in the USA and had ordered a meal in a hotel for them. He had the foresight to check before hand, and sure enough, while most of the meal was fine, the green beans had been cooked with bacon, and had to be replaced with non-bacon green beans. It had just never occurred to that hotel that anyone would eat green beans that didn’t have bacon in them. Cultural thing.
