My crafting and family life journal

Thanksgiving Weekend

I hope that you had a wonderful Thanksgiving with friends and family. o far ours has been quite enjoyable and productive. Our Thanksgiving dinner had to be moved back a day due to the big snowstorm that came through the area,

We spend Thanksgiving day clearing the 14 inches of snow that fell and then re-clearing areas where the snow fell off of roofs… needless to say by the end of the day we were sore and tired. the evening was spent with a healthy dose of aspirin and old movies.

cleaning up Tanksgiving snowFriday was spent cooking dishes for friends joining us for dinner in the morning and enjoying good food and conversation in the afternoon with our guests.   We started our meal with an appetizer of local cheeses, crackers and cranberry chutney.  For the celebration meal we made:

Our guests added some lovey side dishes to the meal as well.  For desert we made caramel apple cheesecake that was served with a variety of herbal teas.

The dinner and company was enjoyable, but the meal was packed with more rich ingredients and sugar than we normally eat, so many of the leftovers were given away so that we can get back to normal eating as soon as possible…but it was good for a day 🙂

After all of the outdoor work on Thursday and cooking on Friday, we decided to use Saturday working on our respective crafts. For my activity I worked on a two UFOs in my quilting pile. By midday I managed to finish a quilt that I have been working on for the past four years.
