Thanksgiving Meal

Us girls have been cooking up a storm for our gathering tomorrow.
All of the recipes we made are posted on my family's cooking blog, so I thought I'd take pics of all the food we prepped and share the links with you all. Because Thanksgiving food it THE BEST!

Today I chopped up all the veggies, and made the sauce for Stir Fry. Tomorrow we will toss the veggies in oil and salt, bake them for a bit, add sliced almonds and coat them in the sauce.

Mom always cooks the turkey very simply in water, with seasoning salt sprinkled on top.

Brooke peeled and cut up the potatoes, they will go in the fridge overnight covered in water, then tomorrow we will cook them, add margarine, milk, and salt, and whip them with a hand mixer. we will top them with fresh Gravy.

Becca made these delicious Duggar Rolls.

Brooke made the meatballs and Kaya made the sauce for Honey-Garlic Glazed Meatballs.

I made three boxes of cherry Jello, following the directions on the box. Then once it was almost set, I mixed in two cans of cherry pie filling and put it back in the fridge to set the rest of the way. Tomorrow we will mix it with cool whip right before we eat.

We always add a little less liquid than the box makes it ten times better!

 And now for the best part, Jen and I made three different kinds of pies (and maybe a few extra for tonight ;) all with this pie crust

and Apple Pie...I just realized we haven't posted this one yet :o it is THE BEST ever. So I will be posting it here next week!

I hope you all have a great weekend! BE THANKFUL :)
