"Welcome, welcome! There is plenty of food for all and a seat at the table for whoever needs one. Happy Thanksgiving!"
Here are a few things we made for this wonderful occasion! (Note that nothing is fully cooked except in the very last picture.)
First up, the traditional stuffing!
Next up is the candied yams!
Then my favorite, pea salad!
Last, but certainly not least, a cherry pie for dessert!
My plate was full and I hope everyone here had a full plate as well. Mr. and Mrs. Alien had seconds and even took home left overs! Happy Turkey Day!

First up, a nice pumpkin spice cake!
Get all your ingredients
Mix em all together

And boom! a nice frosted pumpkin spice cake
Now, let's get started on a cherry pie
Cherry filling at top crust
And here it is!!
Okay, now to try and *look* healthy, let's make a fruit salad next
Get your fruit
Mix in some greek yogurt and marshmallows (yeah yeah, not fully healthy, but whatever)
And make it look presentable!!
There we go, 3 rather unhealthy but tasty items for the visiting aliens. Hope you enjoy!

Chopped Up Sweet Potatoes:
Scalloped Potatoes (Also Made Mashed Potatoes With The Boiled Potatoes But I Forgot To Get A Picture Since My Family And I Were A Bit Behind On Cooking This Year):
Candied Yams. Or As It's Known In My House, "This Weird Thing My Mother Insists We Have To Make Every Thanksgiving Even Though No One Likes It":

Welcome, visitors! Happy Thanksgiving! Here are some of the recipes I made yesterday. I had pictures of two other recipes but they turned out gross so I decided not to post them (gross as in didn't taste good, they looked fine--I was by myself this year and decided to try some new recipes).
First, a sweet potato pie! I tried a new pastry recipe and Did Not Like, but the pie itself was good.
Second, biscuits from scratch! Eat 'em with lots of butter.
And finally, let's make cookies! These are a family favorite and we'll make enough to drop off at relatives' houses since we're not doing a Thanksgiving get-together this year:

First up on our menu today are fresh baked honey-butter rolls. First, we must give them time to rise.
Looks perfect and ready to bake!
Baked to a beautiful golden brown.
For our first side dish, how about some sweet potato casserole? For this we have to start by boiling the sweet potatoes.
Mash together, add some brown sugar and marshmallows on top, bake until the marshmallows brown. Delicious!
For our second and final side dish, green bean casserole. We start by mixing the green beans and cream of mushroom soup. Personally, i like to add a few bacon bits in as well.
Now we top with crunchy fried onions. (Also, meet my kitty Luna. She wanted to help)
Bake until hot and crispy. All done!
Hope you enjoy!

So, my husband wanted to make a vegetarian meatloaf for Thanksgiving and I wasn't about to dissuade him from cooking. Fortunately, we had enough side dishes that I was able to get three items.
Roasted brussel sprouts and broccoli
Brussel sprouts cut, tossed in olive oil and salt and ready for the oven
Out of the oven along with the broccoli
Chocolate Cream Pie
My first time making a chocolate cream pie and it turned out great
Crust baked and chocolate filling made and ready to be added
Slice of pie with whipped cream added
Everything together (sans pie, that was for later)
I decided to use my Christmas plates since they were the only festive plates I have.

We're gonna start with dessert first--we have:
And finally a thanksgiving casserole, thanks to the pandemic requiring some changes to our normal meal. The stuffing is a secret recipe, so y'all'll just have to make do with the pictures of pre-cooking assembly :p

Alright, so we didn't have our usual big gathering for thanksgiving this year. All the food came from our one house, and it all tasted delicious!
So this is the stuffing before we put it in the oven. I made the cornbread the day before but forgot to take a picture of it. o3o
The ingredients for the macaroni and cheese along with the steps.
The final pic of macaroni and cheese looks awesome!
I made green bean casserole as well, got pictures of that. First I made the cream of mushroom ^^
Then I blanched the green beans and got ready to put it all in the oven.
The finished casseroles, one of my brothers is allergic to wheat so I had to make one without the fried onions on it.
We got pictures of the spinach casserole, my dad's favorite. I only helped out a little with that one o3o
The final product, this baby went on the grill with the turkey...that I forgot to take pictures of >3> It was topped off with ritz crackers, yummy. My dad added jalapenos to give it a kick it, sent it to a whole other level.
We got the ham, luckily.
The final product, I don't really like ham but it does taste good. The brown sugar glaze tasted good on it.
I made two desserts, a gluten-free dutch apple pie, and a Pumpkin Gooey Butter Cake. I made them the day before...and I forgot to take pictures of me making them. Hopefully to compensate I can provide the recipes I used? ^^:
Lastly is my fully packed plate. I got a little bit of everything, including the turkey my dad had on the barbeque grill. It was really good...and purple because of what he let it soak in o3o

So I did an oopsie and forgot to take pics of our Thanksgiving food. So here's some pics for Saturday dinner. ^-^
We're gonna be having pork steaks, rice, butter beans, salad and rolls. Super nummy food~
Getting the meat seasoned and rice browned.
Getting the butter beans to simmer.
Meat and rice are done! :D
Time for the rolls to brown and salad to be made. I forgot to take a pic of cutting the salad ingredients. Oops~
All done and it looks so good~ Pic is of my dad's food since he eats everything and I don't like butter beans. Lol
Can't forget the drink! I made some sweet tea, though it's not too sweet. ^-^
