My cousin Michael and his friend Laura were there. It was our first time to meet Laura. She's such a delight. And it was a true blessing to see Mike so happy with her. She's a bright ray of sunshine in his life for sure! My very special second cousin (and adopted 2nd daughter) Delnelle and her boyfriend Justin were also there. Delnelle is only 19 but she's a natural in the kitchen. I wasn't feeling up to par. Mom and William had the stomach bug on Monday and Tuesday and I was feeling like they were a little too generous with their sharing. So far, I'm fortunate they didn't share too much! Delnelle's brother and dad were also there making 13 of us total. It was a great meal. You can read about what I prepared here. It was banana cream pie.
And we gobbled till we wobbled and played a mean game of "Liverpool Rummy" afterward. I would have won if the high score was the goal!
Because I wasn't feeling up to par, when we got home, I laid down for a "few minutes". I woke up at 3:30 a.m.! I got up and should have went Black Friday Shopping... but didn't. Just cruised Pinterest and Facebook instead. I did do some Black Friday Shopping later in the day at the LQS! :)
So my Second Thanksgiving Dinner was at Mom's on Saturday. The Whole Gang was there except this precious family that's serving our country while stationed in Japan.
Miss you Hollie, Kyle, Raleigh and Kameron but we got this for next year!
Saturday I made homemade strawberry pie and the King made homemade macaroni and cheese.
Here is the recipe for the Strawberry pie. It is soooo easy!
The King's recipe for Macaroni and Cheese is here.
Of course, Mom made her homemade egg noodles. You can read about that here.
