A Fun Thanksgiving 2010

My brother Jeff and his wife Kim hosted Thanksgiving for the 14 in our family.

First off, a family tradition for over 30 years - Ted Peters smoked mullet spread:


Don't forget the hot sauce:


21 pounder cooked in 4 1/2 hours:


I cooked a stuffed pumpkin at home and finished it on his egg, along with jalepeno dressing:


The pumpkin was stuffed with granny smith apples, onion, 1 clove garlic, and stale cornbread, half and half, fresh thyme. You scrape into the inside of the pumpkin when dishing it out. It got good reviews.


We had a record 10 side dishes this year:
Mashed Potato Casserole
Pineapple Casserole
Green Bean Casserole
Stuffed Pumpkin
Jalepeno Dressing
Cheesy Vegetable Casserole
Sweet Potatoe Puree
Homemade Applesauce
Corn Casserole
I can't remember the other one!

But forgot the fresh cranberry sauce on the plate~


The family - no the children are not drinking wine, they are drinking sparkling cider!


My brother Jeff and the clean plate club:


Let the contests begin! My SIL arm wrestling her daughter- the mom won!


The grandparents can still touch their toes:


The dog thinks we are all nuts:


The cutest thing of all was this card my youngest niece made for me for Thanksgiving:


She got it right!


It was a great Thanksgiving.

    Great post Faith. ;) You have a nice size family. Your brother Jeff looks like the guy in the TV show Homes on Homes. I could not tell who was the mom on the arm wrestling contest and I wish I could touch my toes. Beautiful husky. Blessings to you all. Tim & Cindy

    Awesome card! The food looks good too. I made the pineapple casserole yesterday myself. We liked it too. We'll being doing this one again. Thanks for the idea!
  • Gwen, here's the pineapple casserole recipe I posted the other day:

    Rose's Vegetables Recipe - we have been making this side dish for so long, we can't remember who Rose is!!
    My sister makes it every year, we think it tastes best when she makes it!

    Rose's Vegetables

    2 10 oz. packages frozen mixed vegetables (I use fresh veggies when i make it)
    1/4 - 1/3 stick butter
    1 can cream of chicken
    1 16 oz. bag shredded cheddar cheese
    1 bag Pepperidge Farms herb seasones stuffing crumbs

    Mix melted butter and soup. Add cheese and let melt slightly. Pour drained cooked vegetables into buttered casserole and pour mixture over. Sprinkle with herbed stuffing crumbs. Bake at 350 degrees for 1/2 hour - 45 minutes.
