Most Irresistible Dish at Thanksgiving Dinner

I hosted Thanksgiving Dinner at my house on Friday night. Check out the fruits of my labor.

Appetizers. Yes like a true Southern Belle I have a deviled egg plate, and the goldfish crackers are homemade.


Sweet Potato Casserole


Turkey and Ham (both of which I outsourced this year)


Mac and cheese


Cauliflower au gratin


But this juicy little morsel stole the whole show:

What?! No Pink Stuff?!

aw thanks Mel, love the photos! I'm totally doing my own this year, mainly because this year lacked deviled eggs so it practically doesn't count. lol.

My contributions were corn pudding, fresh cranberry sauce, spinach au gratin. The latter was the first time I made it and I think it was pretty yummy, but could have used more salt.

Can't believe how cute Robby is, so jealous, I want a squeeze!

Anonymous I know exactly who you are! :) And if you share your secret pink stuff recipe with me I will make sure it's on the table next year.

Dalton we really did miss you this year. I'm hoping we can have your low-sodium spinach casserole next year in Beijing.

I only ever had deviled eggs once in my life (cooked by an American, of course)! Are they something of a tradition?

And that little cutie pie is gorgeous!

Melanie Gao said...

Definitely a tradition in the Southern United States, Sarah. I can't imagine a holiday without them. Yum...

YUM! The Sweet Potato Casserole looks SO good. I love deviled eggs!

An I hope we never sit next to each other at Thanksgiving Dinner. We would be fighting over the same dishes!
