Thanksgiving Recap

This year T and I spent Thanksgiving with his side of the family in Murell's Inlet.  T's uncle and aunt have a house there, and they were so gracious to have the family come and stay.   This was the first time ever that I that I haven't spent Thanksgiving with my family. I must admit, I was a little dubious at first.  I'm a creature of habit, especially when it comes to the holidays.  But I had such a wonderful time with everyone in T's family, not to mention all the food was absolutely amazing!

T's sister Angela and her husband Trey came up for the afternoon.  It was so good to see the two of them.  

We started our feast with a late lunch all served on the most beautiful china.  T's Aunt Wendy has an extensive collection of fine china, so all twenty five of us were served on the good stuff.  T and I both ate on a pattern called Autumn by Lenox.  It was absolutely beautiful, T even mentioned that he loved the plates, too. We don't have any fine china at this point, but I'm tempted to start a collection of this line; it was just that gorgeous. In addition to the stuffing, sweet potato casserole, green beans, mashed potatoes, and cranberry sauce, we also had two turkeys, two hams, and one large beef tenderloin.  Holy moly.

The rest of the afternoon was spent lounging on the couch, watching football, and sipping on champagne all by the warm fireplace. A perfect way to digest.  

Later that night we all felt a tinge of hunger, so we headed down to the garage to steam some oysters. One of the advantages of celebrating Thanksgiving on the coast is that fresh seafood is always readily available.  I think I ate my weight in oysters, crab legs, and shrimp this weekend and I loved every minute of it!

I hope y'all had a wonderful Thanksgiving as well!
