A different Thanksgiving Dinner

http://sph.ba/slucaj_mjeseca.php?id=16 For the past four years, Thanksgiving for me meant going to bed late the night before prepping and getting up early the morning of, baking and cook enough to feed a small village of friends and family.

I made an apple pie that got a 3 out of 4 start rating from my son

And a sweet potato pie that according to my daughter is addictive

We are not fans of turkey so in its place I usually roast a whole chicken with sides of Mac and cheese, rice, gravy, cornbread, green vegetables and a salad. Surprisingly, there were no whole chicken to be found in my neighborhood so I ended making my kids’ favorite, meatloaf

In the end, we had a great Thanksgiving dinner. We ate, we laughed, we talked about our past, made plans for the future and realized just how much we had to be thankful for.

I hope you all had a great time, surrounded by love.
