We were lucky this Thanksgiving to have my in-laws come visit us for several days. We did a lot of cooking and some exploring. I didn't get pictures of everything, but here are a couple snapshots from our days.
This is the beginning of the Thanksgiving table. So far there is only turkey and rolls on the table!
I made my great-grandmother Zerah's dressing for the first time. Check out that nice golden top! I was quite proud of myself for this one.
Here we have butterbeans, broccoli casserole, two types of cranberry sauce and brownies. Not pictured is green bean casserole, mashed potatoes, and sweet potatoes.
This is the Thanksgiving turkey before it was cooked. It was so delicious!
On Friday, we went to the Garden of the Gods outside Colorado Springs.
It is so beautiful there! I love the red rocks against that blue sky.
Saturday we woke up to snow. On Friday night, we went to downtown Littleton to the lighting of the Christmas tree and SANTA. It was really neat. They light all the trees along the main street and slowly Santa rolls down the street in his sleigh. We ate at Merles which is a new restaurant downtown. We have eaten there three times in the past week and every single time they had delicious food. It is awesome to have a local eatery with good food that is reasonably priced that we can walk to. They were singing Christmas carols on the street and it started snowing-which may be the only time I have really liked the snow!:)
This is our lovely snow covered tree in the front yard.
We did do some shopping this weekend. I found several books I needed to buy. We went to Tattered Cover in LoDo (independent bookstore), an independent store in Manitou Springs, CO and the borders outlet at Castle Rock.
I also made turkey stew with the left over turkey bones. This is really good and it did not use any of the good turkey leftovers!
I hope you all had wonderful Thanksgiving weekends!
