Thanksgiving – high-living orphans

28 Oct

Menu: Pot-luck

Host of our Deliciousness: Friend and Husband

This year we managed to join family and friends for an excellent thanksgiving feast. Friend and Husband have recently moved to larger place that gives them space to have 11 people show up for dinner.

Their contribution was the spiral cut ham. If you’ve never had the joy of serving spiral cut ham I think you should try it. It’s slightly more expensive for weight but the ease of serving is awesome. I’m looking forward to hopefully being invited to the soup that will be made from the leftover bone.

There was also 2 separate loaves of homemade bread; veggies and dip; quinoa in roasted squash, scalloped potatoes; sweet potato crisp; lemon pepper roasted brussel sprouts; fancy bakery pumpkin pie with whipped cream and 2 apple pies (1 was gluten free pastry)

The standouts for me were the bread, sweet potato crisp ’cause we miss the parental Peddle’s (family recipe) and the brussel sprouts. I have always enjoyed brussel sprouts but these ones were even enjoyed by a few people who said they didn’t like them.
