Thanksmas, for those new to the blog, combines all the greatest things about Thanksgiving - think American food, focusing on thankfulness and then Christmas - think the roast dinner, the crackers, the festive dress.
The menu this year:
- Green bean casserole
- Honey roasted parsnips and carrots
- Bacon tossed sprouts
- Corn bread + cornbread stuffing
- Roast potatoes
- Candied yams (sweet potatoes + marshmallows)
- Mac & cheese
- Chocolate tart
- Pumpkin cheesecake
We catered for 12 friends and this year had an added extra of snow! That's right Birmingham brought the snow....for those guests leaving that night it wasn't a big deal. For those staying overnight it led to us digging out their cars the next morning! A first for Thanksmas.
If you are interested the history of our Thanksmases can be found here.....
