It was good to have the family together after too many years and to celebrate with some flexibility in my eating habits. 😉
For breakfast I made pumpkin-cranberry scones from a mix from Trader Joe’s (had to get some pumpkin in somewhere)
My Dad made a ham, so I tried to think of hearty vegetarian entrees that would complement that. I decided that pineapple would go well with sweet potatoes (much better than the classic/gross marshmallow topping) and then found this lovely recipe for pineapple upside down sweet potatoes. It was wonderful!
I also made my Nine a Day Salad, which is always a hit.
and some collard greens with pecans
some simple garlic mashed potatoes (made with soy milk)
My sister made the classic/delicious green bean casserole: a huge crowd pleaser. My Mom made Pilsbury crescent rolls and 2 pies: apple and pecan.
Everything was absolutely delicious! I was thankful for an abundance of good food and family.
