Holiday Meals

I kind of took a vacation from WordPress and I really do regret it. My family and I made such good food for Thanksgiving I don’t care that it was last month, I’m still going to share it with you guys.

My family and I moved to Georgia from Florida back in August, so going with the theme of “change” we decided to do a Thanksgiving brunch instead of a dinner. I never really cared for Thanksgiving, which is surprising because I love food so much. But I think it’s because for this holiday season my family doesn’t get together, like those families you see on TV where there are cousins on top of cousins at the grandmothers house. So I rather just watch the Macy’s day parade and get ready for Christmas. But with the bright idea of Thanksgiving brunch, this holiday got a little exciting.

I was so excited that we started prepping two days before Thanksgiving, the 24th. I had to work all day the 25th so I decided to make due with the time that was given to me. We decided that our brunch would start at noon so everything had to get ready very early. I woke up at 3 am and started getting the food ready.
