This year, my family and I decided to NOT make a turkey. Kinda takes a long time and we are a small group. This year it was 4 of us. 3 really as 1 was my girlfriend. So I decided to make one of my all time favorite dishes.
How perfect! So here it is kids...YUMMY!
This was my first time wrapping bacon around it. Glad I did...woohooo!
here it is DONE...and let me tell you it was DELICIOUS! If I do say so myself...everyone loved it. So I am happy!
man oh man...yummy!
My sister made fresh/real mash potatoes, green beans, stuffing and of course we needed rice and some gravy too!
Now on to some dessert!
Shaker's Famous Carrot Cake - it really is great. The best carrot cake I have ever had period.
Portos Apple Pie
Portos Pumpkin Pie
let me just say it...that is the BEST pumpkin pie I have ever had. It is SOOO GOOD. Very pumpkiny and some cinnamon etc. Just perfect. My mom loved it as well and we are planning on getting another. I had to call Portos to see when they are going to stop making them. I will have to freeze one for later in the year. I swear it is that good.
Now you may think..wow..that is alot of dessert...and it is. But I was pretty good. I only ate the pumpkin on Thanksgiving. I refrained from the apple and carrot cake. I was doing my best to be good.
