"Megs, I didn't know you were serving a real Thanksgiving!" the girls crooned, marveling at the light feast that lay before them. That, coupled with the disbelief that I had actually made all the items myself (though totally cheating on the main dish), made for a fabulous Girlsgiving, which included an evening of laughter, celebration of friendship and story swapping well into the evening.
So what did we consume besides several bottles of wine? Given my lack of skill in the kitchen, that it was a work day and daycare sent my kiddo home under the weather, I went for simple and tasty:
Honey Baked Ham:
Maple Cornbread from this month's "Real Simple" magazine:
Green bean casserole (the dish that caused the most groans of joy):
Mini quiche as an appetizer:
And pumpkin bars and candy bar treats for dessert:
So eat, drink and be merry we did, delighting in our bond, planning for the holidays and thanking our lucky stars for one another.
Happy Girlsgiving, indeed.
Now back to the treadmill!
