a festive backyard feast

Well, after much planning, cleaning and cooking- Thanksgiving was a success. Or, everyone is REALLY good at lying. 

Since we have a little cottage and had 9 guests for Thanksgiving, we had a rather authentic Thanksgiving in our wall tent. I have to say, it was lovely! 

I set up a long table to dine accompanied by a buffet table and a crackling wood stove, warming the apple pie. Candles were lit and Christmas lights were hung. 

On the menu was: roasted sage, parsley, thyme and rosemary turkey; cornbread stuffing in the slow cooker; creamy mashed potatoes in the slow cooker; a green bean casserole with pimentos, bacon and fresh garlic; butternut squash casserole (tastier than sweet potatoes!); rolls; salads, and much dessert. 

To top it off, Chris had his batch of Pumpkin Beer bottled and cold. Mmmm.... 

I loved having all the family together and boy was it smart pre-cooking some dishes the days before and doing slow cooker dishes. I actually had peace in the kitchen on Thanksgiving. 

Here are some photos. Hope your Thanksgiving was wonderful.

magical spells really work!! I never thought there were still honest, genuine, trustworthy and very powerful spell casters until i met the spiritual helper, MERUJA OWO. last week he did a love spell for me and it worked effectively and now he just casted another healing spell for my friend who has fibroid and family problem and now she is totally free and she is presently the happiest person on earth, she keeps thanking me all day..
I just thought it would be good to tell the whole world about his good work and how genuine he is, i wasn't thinking i could get any help because of my past experiences with other fake casters who could not bring my husband back to me and they all promised heaven and earth and all they are able to do is ask for more money all the time until i met with this man. he does all spells, Love spells, money spells, lottery spells e.t.c i wish i can save every one who is in those casters trap right now because i went though hell thinking and hoping they could help me.i recommend MERUJA OWO for any kind of help you want.
his email address is: nativedoctor101@live.com
if you want to ask me anything my e-mail is: jannet_madeson@yahoo.com
Kind Regards,
