Thanksgiving Dinner...

A late post but better late than never!  We were invited to our very first Thanksgiving a few weeks ago.   It was a brilliant night filled with lots of friends and so much yummy food!  Good times. 

We were each told to bring a dish so with twenty people each bringing something, that means a lot of food!   I think our lovely hosts were having leftovers for the rest of the week. 

I was feeling a bit ambitious so the Mr and I decided to bring 3 dishes - Mac and Cheese, Pecan Pie and Red Velvet Cupcakes. They all turned out quite well I think!  Unfortunately I did end up with a Thanksgiving burn on my hand, my Mac and Cheese turned out a bit too dry for my liking when I reheated it to take with us and I forgot to put in an egg in my first batch of cupcake mixture (yes I know now that it makes a massive difference*) #domesticgoddessfail. 
Recipe links below for those interested.

 *luckily the Mr showed off his baking skills by whipping up the second batch.
