These are just random pics of my family at Thanksgiving.

The children’s table
This is Aunt Sue’s pound cake and Mama’s Custard sauce that you pour over it. Oh my goodness good! The recipe for both is in the cookbook.
My favorite thing in the world. Grandmama’s fruit salad!
Grandmama munching on caramel corn (which makes a great Christmas gift, too!).

Now for Thanksgiving at my house…
Since I was a teenager, Mama and Daddy have always had their Thanksgiving early and then gone out of town for Thanksgiving. So while they make their annual trip to the Smoky Mountains in Gatlinburg, I’m making a big spread at my house to keep from being too overly jealous of them ~grins~
This is my spread. I just laid it all out on the island and we fixed plates to take to the table.
Dressing, fried apples, fire and ice salad, broccoli and cheese casserole, butter peas, marshmallow sweet potatoes, deviled eggs, mac and cheese, buttermilk congealed salad, rolls, ham, and turkey. I think all of these recipes are on Southern Plate or in the book except for the butter peas because you just kinda cook those…
Fixing plates 🙂
See my curtains in the background? I made those Thanksgiving morning. I’m awfully proud of putting it together so fast, hehehe.
Proof that my husband eats my cooking!
I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving!
I always love seeing your family getting together. TY for sharing.
