Thanksgiving Dinner Party
I'm so happy right now. My first dinner party was a great success. Hubby finished cleaning the house and getting everything in order for our guests while I finished cooking the food. This year I wanted to have a dinner party to celebrate Thanksgiving before the big date since all of the Philly family will be scattered this year.
On the menu was a smoked turkey breast and a mini ham from the wonderful Honeybaked Ham store.
We had Pineapple Iced Tea Punch to drink and I made all the sides starting with the dressing and ending with two desserts. The sides included the cornbread dressing, southern baked macaroni & cheese, turnip greens with chopped turnips, baked candied butternut squash, Sister Shubert yeast rolls, homemade onion gravy, and a delicious orange cranberry sauce. For dessert, we had a lemon cake with cream cheese icing and my new revised sweet potato pie recipe that I think I'm going to keep top secret.
Recipes will follow soon!
If I don't get a chance to say so before then, I wish everyone a blessed and happy holiday season.
