Thanksgiving from scratch!

It seems only fitting that this is my 100th post AND I get to check something off my 35x35 list!

Just call me Julia because I pulled off quite the amazing feat!  Except for one snaffou with the turkey not being defrosted because I forgot *oops* and having ham instead, everything went off without a hitch for my Thanksgiving from scratch!!

All of the recipes have been linked to their own little bloggy post for your delight!  Here is the menu that graced my kitchen table and left all of us stuffed to the gills.  Prepare your fat pants people, it's going to be a filling ride!

Annalee's Smoked Salmon Dip
Veggie Tray! (if you need instructions, you should just buy everything)

Our Menu:
Ham w/homemade gravy
Fresh Green Beans (steam & add s/p, butter!)
Jackie Ladd's World Famous Rolls
Creamy mashed red potatoes
Sausage and Cornbread Stuffing
Brown Sugar & Marshmallow Yams

For Dessert: (These ended up being semi-homemade)
Pumpkin Cookies w/Cinnamon Frosting
Pumpkin Cheesecake

Feel free to make these at your next holiday gathering!  These recipes are sure to please even the hungriest of crowds!  

What an amazing time we all had together eating our fill and going into food coma's!  I know I say this a lot on here, but I am so thankful I married in to an amazing family!  My only wish is that my side of the family could be here to join us.  Next year! 

Happy Thanksgiving to you all!  

Until next time... 


  1. AHAHAHAHAHA! "Veggie Tray: If you need instructions, you should just buy everything" That's awesome!

    What is not awesome is your Captcha... I get stuck at that stupid thing EVERY TIME!

  2. I ended up going to the grocery store to late yesterday to get a turkey, but I did end up with a nice prime rib. I've never cooked prime rib before so tomorrow should be a fun test of cooking skills and pinterest research. Have a great Thanksgiving !
