thanksgiving recap

Most of the dishes for Thanksgiving this year were from a restaurant because everyone in my family is working crazy hours. We bought the turkey this year and it was delicious but somehow it didn’t come with any sauce. What’s up with that?! Anyway, I made mashed potatoes and green beans with tomatoes. I sort of made up my own mashed potato recipe based on what I’ve tried and what I like. This years recipe included sour cream, heavy whipping cream, butter, pepper, and seasoned salt. I made the PW’s green beans with tomatoes. It’s freakin delicious. It smelled really great when I poured them into a bowl. I love the addition of the tomatoes. It’s a bit sour but oh so delicious.
