Babies make the holidays more special I think and your table looks so nice. I just love your menu maybe you could share the 3 casserole recipes? squash I have never had before the corn maybe and the jack daniels sweet potatoes sounds really good. Hope you had a great day

Arkansas Patti said...

Hope you had a wonderful day though you couldn't miss with that beautiful table and such a menu. Martha Stewart would be envious.
Now to recover in time for Christmas.

Omg, Carol, your dining room is gorgeous! You did a fabulous job in such a short time! Love the menu, table setting, and tablecloth! And your tree with all the gifts wrapped already, is beautiful. And what a cutie that precious baby is!

Yum, yum. A very good menu and lovely table setting. Husband I were out of town and ate at a cafeteria. Truthfully, I enjoyed the no cleaning house, no cooking, no washing dishes for a change. Food was decent and I chose baked leg and thigh of chicken. The turkey was not appealing. Husband had ham. I had spinache due to a need for iron and husband ate his favorite sweet potatoes.

And I forfeited Black Friday shopping in Little Rock for a trip HOME. My group of friends are also foregoing the usual Christmas gift exchange and eating forays to give to those less fortunate. We've already chosen certain projects and have one or two more. We are picking our own gift to each other by agreement. For some reason I am very at peace with these decisions. Usually I like the hustle and bustle. Guess it is age.

I hope your celebration was worthy of its environment and all the love that went into the preparation.

A beautiful southern Thanksgiving, since Alabama is my homeland I can appreciate the setting you have created for your family.
