Today is Thanksgiving, which is my second favorite holiday ever  (my first favorite is Halloween). I love the emphasis on family and good, two things I love dearly! So I have a lot to be thankful for today. I’m thankful that we were able to successfully host our first Thanksgiving meal and that we get to spend this day with my parents, with Nick’s mom, Laura, who is equally as awesome as my parents, and with our little doggies. It was a really great day.

Our First Thanksgiving Spread

Nick and I found some really great recipes for our meal:

Turkey, Goat cheese & rosemary mashed potatoes, and gravy

Sausage, apple & cranberry stuffing with a port & cinnamon cranberry sauce

Parmesan roasted green beans and brussel sprouts gratin

I do love food and all of this was pretty delicious.  Happy Thanksgiving. I’m thankful for everything; my family and friends, my job, my life. All of it. 🙂
