thanksgiving in alaska: the best meal ever

Tuesday, November 29, 2011

on thanksgiving, my sister and i slept in and then spent all day cooking in our pajamas.  we did make a point later on in the afternoon to call our parents/other sister, who were celebrating together back in oklahoma.22.0

while i love the traditional thanksgiving food my mom makes every year, i have to say this particular thanksgiving dinner might have been the best i’ve ever eaten.  we prepared a vegetarian meal that consisted of broccoli slaw, garlic mashed potatoes, beer bread, roasted cauliflower, baked asparagus and a veggie lasagna.  does it sound amazing?  it was.  and the falling snow outside did wonders for the ambiance.28

and of course we ended the night with a cosby show marathon, made complete with fresh-baked chocolate chip cookies and milk.31

Sounds amazing! And now I realize why I just can't seem to get into the holiday spirit this year....usually by this time we've had at least some snow here in Chicago....and this year it has been warm (ish) and no snow in sight....not sure that I should be complaining...

I'm glad that you like beer bread, because the menu I've planned for SB basically ( /only) consists of 1. beer bread 2. butter beer
