Thanks * Merci* Gracias* Gratias Tibi Ago

I wanted to wish all of you a very happy Thanksgiving!! My husband and I are hosting his family for the first time and we are quite excited. The bird continues to roast as I write this post, so hopefully it will come out of the oven tasty and moist! Although I have helped my mom make the Thanksgiving turkey several times, this is the first time I've made it on my own. Already I had one mishap and had to send my husband to the store when I ran out of celery.

I'll post more pictures of the table tomorrow. I thank God for His many blessings, and for the many online IF friends that I've met through blogging. May He bless all of you today and always!! :)

Since my dh bought me a "roaster" about three years ago for a Christmas present...my turkey dinners have gotten so much easier! I roasted my 15 1/2 lb turkey yesterday in 3 hours and it was not completely thawed out! I love having my oven free for the side dishes and appetizers. I hope the meal went well for you. I was really nervous the first time I hosted Thanksgiving at my house too. Doesn't it make you appreciate all the work our mothers did all the years they had to cook these fantastic meals? Now, I'm thankful I can give my mom a rest. She is too. :)
