Dinner was not a home cooked meal. It was nice to share the time with family, but GOSH I MISSED THE FOOD! It wasn't until a few days later that I realized how much I missed all that home made stuff.
We returned home late on Sunday night. On Monday I needed to do a little grocery shopping. Turkey legs were on sale! For dinner on Monday I made smaller portions of some of the meal we had missed: Turkey, mashed potatoes (not from a box!), gravy (from the turkey drippings), stuffing (okay, this was from a box...I only had legs, not a whole turkey to work with), cranberry sauce (real cranberries cooked on the stove top with water and sugar, etc) and green beans. Mmmm. The week before we traveled I did make sweet potato casserole to go with a ham we had, so I didn't make that again.
I made myself a pumpkin pie on Tuesday night! Now I am ready for the Christmas season. :)
Hope you all had your favorites to eat last week! Next in my kitchen...Christmas Baking!!!
