{Sweater: H&M (old), Nails: Essie in Scarlett O’Hara}
On Sunday, we hosted a belated Thanksgiving dinner over at our house. It was my first attempt at cooking a real turkey, and I was quite nervous about it. I sort of have a phobia of raw meat, so I’m so thankful that my sweet husband offered to do the gross parts- like taking the neck out of the inside of the bird. Ew. All in all, it turned out to be a great meal, and a wonderful afternoon with loved ones. Now we’ll be eating turkey for every meal for the next 8 weeks because I miscalculated and thought that a 19lb turkey was the right size for serving 7 people.

{My attempt at food art: a turkey-ish shaped fruit/cheese platter with New York aged cheddar and Dubliner cheeses- two of my favorites}


{For dessert: Pumpkin pie with streudel topping and these guys}
Thanks for reading!
Also, please don’t forget to enter my Allison Chomer giveaway! It ends on Sunday at midnight, so time is running out.
