Friendsgiving #1

We hosted two (2!) "Friendsgiving" dinners last weekend. I've finally recovered enough to post about it ;-)

Since I was so busy cooking, I totally forgot about taking any pictures! Luckily, Jenn captured a few for me!

On Friday night we had the Jodoins and Mulkerins over. The Mulkerins are moving to SLO, and had bumped up their move date at the last minute, which meant only Bill (the husband/dad) was able to join us. Still, I think everyone had a blast!

I had these cool "paint your own" cookies made for the kids (hoping they'd provide a few minutes of distraction and extra quiet time for us adults!). Callum was the only one who sat down to paint his, and really enjoyed it! :)

As for the menu, I made:

Smoked turkey (Jon's job)
Whiskey Glazed Carrots (which I made with rum!) :)
Dijon Maple Green Beans with pecans, bacon and feta
Butternut Squash Risotto
Mashed potatoes
Cranberry Pomegranate sauce
Bread rolls
And of course, pumpkin pie, for dessert!
