Plop, plop, fizz, fizz....... Oh what a relief it is......

We are stuffed to the gullet with turkey and most of the fixings, how 'bout you?

Here are just a few pic's from our feast (and in no particular order.)

Grasshopper Pie:

Mommy made 2 of them. One for us and one for our neighbor.
We ALWAYS use Grandma's recipe! It's the best in the universe.
 Daddy in the kitchen ALWAYS requires supervision. He was helping Mommy make Grandma's stuffing for the first time.
Yes, she's soft and white, butt please don't call my Mommy a Bimbo...There was NO Wonder Bread in the stores at all.
The other little supervisor. Grandpa was reading the newspaper and we don't think he even knew we were all in the kitchen cooking.
Cinnamon nut pull apart bread. This is what smelled so good this morning. Mommy got up early (that's nothing new) and made this for breakfast.
Mommy's food on Grandma's good dishes. (Mommy Kim here ~ Yes, I will always use my mother's best china for the Holiday's. I believe in the theory that lightening could stike me dead otherwise...)
Grandpa Bob ready to dig in.
Daddy getting a head start.
Going for a ride before dinner.
Then we came home to baste the turkey and put up our Christmas tree. It is definately a Charlie Brown tree but we love it. We will take pictures later once it is decorated.
Now we just have to wait for the Grasshopper pie to be served so we can lick the plates. Then we will all pass out with "turkey belly."
We hope you have a great Thanksgiving too.

  1. Oh your dinner looks like it was magnificent!! These pics have made me soooo hungry! Grasshopper pie was one of my Mother's favorites too. I hope you're all not too "stuffed" today. hehehe

  2. We are laughing at the thought of passing out with turkey belly. Glad your day was a good one. Have a fabulous Friday.
    Best wishes Molly

  3. What a feast you all had. Ours was similar without the grasshopper pie. That looks delish. Is that your new wheels? It might not be tricked out, but it sure looks spiffy. We're thankful to have met you in person too and can't wait for you to get back north. Okay...I guess we will have quite a wait seeing as you just got down there, but we will count the days. Love and hugs to you all.

  4. Oh noes... I´m hungry!!!!!!!
    Have a great weekend!

  5. That looks delicious!!!! Oh man, bet your bellies are really full today!

  6. Hi Lily Belle and Muffin....OMDs my mom always has at least 2 crock pots in the house...and as soon as one dies she buys another one. Both are different sizes though.
    Your pull apart cinnamon bread is what we have every single Christmas morning. Mom's recipe calls it Monkey bread. She says it is because the two leggers look like monkey's pulling it about. MOL

    Your lunch was surely scrumptious.
    hugs Madi your BFFF

  7. Recipes- post the recipes! We need WHN to learn how to cook!

  8. Good thing the weekend's coming up so you can digest that dinner.....of course one of the best things about Thanksgiving is the left overs! Enjoy.

  10. That all looks really delicious. A royal feast in of itself! Yum!

    Now you can have a relaxing weekend after all that cooking :)

    the critters in the cottage xo
    P.S. The sticky nut bread looks so tasty we can almost smell it over here!

  11. That looks yummy! BOL, mom always about pees her pants every time she sees that bread in stores. I didn't get many samples at Thanksgiving, Mom's obsessive about what I eat
    Love ya

  12. Wow, it all looks great! I got gypped this year, my peeps were feeling under the weather so the family, without me, went to a diner style restaurant & didn't even get any turkey or stuffing. Of course that means nothing for me!

    Nubbin wiggles,

  13. Great post ...Looks like a blessed time was had by all. I love Grandpa Bob and I don't even know him...he just takes the best picture. He looks like the Grandpa everyone would want. :). Never heard of grasshopper pie but that sure looked yummy! And shorts in November we may be a wee bit jealous! Oh and lightning would strike...I know because I tell my kids the same

  14. Howdy Lily Belle and Muffin, oh my dog, that food looks sooooo good. We are green with jelly over it, slobber, drool. Our Poppa always used to sit and read the paper when the food was being prepared too! Thanks for your comment today about your Grandma. We can't believe she had the same Father Christmas!! How wonderful is that. Now when we play ours we will think of your Grandma too! Take care everybuddy. No worries, and love, Stella and Rory

  15. Hope you had a lovely Thanksgiving! Everything looks so yummy! What great helpers :)

  16. Wow what a great day you had. Ours was great too, this is the best foodable meal ever!!
