Thanksgiving 2012

I ate some good stuff for Thanksgiving yesterday, probably too much.  Which is why I just had a salad for lunch today.  But I captured some good food photos and had an awesome time hanging out with family. 

I started the day by watching the Macy's Thanksgiving Parade on TV while I made some waffles.  I found a recipe that uses cinnamon rolls in the can on a waffle iron.  The result?  Waffles with a cinnamon swirl.  Then you use the frosting to make a syrup with water and corn syrup to pour over the top of the waffles. 



I found the recipe to make these Cinnamon Roll Waffles with Cream Cheese Syrup here

Since Thanksgiving dinner with my husbands' family was a pot-luck I made a salad to bring.  I used a spring mix lettuce then added watermelon, four ounces of feta cheese, red onions and raspberry vinaigrette dressing.



Then it was time to go to my sister-in-law's house for dinner where a ton of appetizers awaited us. 

Some delicious and fresh Bruschetta.  Tomatoes, basil, garlic and olive oil made up this wonderful appetizer.  

My husbands' uncle was going bacon crazy yesterday.  After cooking up some bacon he slathered it in brown sugar and maple syrup.  The result was the perfect combination of savory and sweet.  Then he cut some up and put it in ice cream to serve later.

We had a traditional Thanksgiving meal complete with Turkey and all the trimmings.  But then it was time for dessert.  My sister-in law brought some marshmallows she had dipped in chocolate and nuts.  My husbands' aunt brought some pumpkin bars with cream cheese frosting. 



 
Although I didn't try one of these Pumpkin Bars yesterday, I took a few home and ate one today.  They were so good, very moist and I loved the frosting. 
 
              I hope you enjoyed seeing some of my food highlights from Thanksgiving this year!
