I am interrupting my "Meet The Authors" posts to share some Thanksgiving moments. My son-in-law, Adam, took over the kitchen, which is a good thing! Yesterday he made a brine and soaked the turkey overnight with all kinds of seasoning. This morning it went into the Nesco roaster. His next treat was making a sausage stuffing that was so good! Wonderful aromas wafted through the house!The kids couldn't wait until Aunt Becky and Uncle Barry arrived.
Becky made a family favorite and tradition - Butternut Cake. This cake is made with a special vanilla and is to die for! It is a rich, dense cake that needs no icing. Man, is it good! Because the boys can't eat the cake, we made yummy gluten-free chocolate chip cookies yesterday. They ate the cookies with an awesome ricotta cappucino mousse that Annisa made. Wow! That mousse is definitely a new family favorite!
After turkey and all the trimmings, it was time to play some games! Jen led the kids in a rousing game of "You Gotta Be Kidding!" I love hearing the kids laugh. It is such a silly game and they had so much fun playing it!
Little Robert Dixon is such a pleasant little boy. He is just fascinated by his great-grandmother! I believe he stole her heart!
Robert Dixon and his sister, Sasha, share a very special bond. He's quite the snuggler!
We wish your family a blessed Thanksgiving! We are so thankful for living in the United States of America, for our brave military men and women, our friends, and family.
