So, our first Thanksgiving went very well. We had an awesome dinner:
The homemade stuffing turned out great and the green bean casserole was tasty as always. In addition, like any great occasion, we had some yummy beverages.
For dessert, Ryan had a carrot cake cupcake and I had pumpkin pie! (which I am continuing to eat because I was forced to buy a whole pie instead of a slice). This holiday, I also introduced Ryan to the Harry Potter movies! I love them all and the books. So, we are now on movie 5 and will likely make quick progress so we can see the new one in the theater. It has also finally started to get a little chilly here in DC, so we had our first fire of the year.
Overall, we had a very happy and very successful Thanksgiving.
The day after Thanksgiving, Ryan picked the meat off of the other hen and we made our own chicken stock! This chicken stock and the leftover meat then became the stars of today’s lunch – homemade chicken noodle soup!!!
The caption is not hyperbole, it really was fantastic. I was incredibly impressed with myself. Hahaha. But seriously, Campbell’s better watch themselves. Now, time to put up the Christmas decorations!!! Happy Holidays!
