As I mentioned before, Josh didn’t feel good on Thanksgiving (he had a tummy bug). He was totally bummed that he missed one of his most favorite meals of the year. To make up for it, I made a second Thanksgiving this past weekend (Joshgiving).
Our meal included appetizers, pretzel chips with hummus:
And puff pasty/goat cheese appetizer that my Mom brought.
I also made butternut squash with sage:
Roasted Brussels sprouts (excuse the weird picture taken pretty early in the morning):
Turkey breasts (I made two):
My Dad teaching Josh turkey carving methods:
I’m not sure I made enough turkey for 8 people ;)
My Mom’s cranberry sauce (my most favorite part of every Thanksgiving/Joshgiving meal):
I didn’t get a picture of Josh’s Mom’s stuffing, but it was so yummy.
For dessert, apple crisp:
double chocolate chip cookie dough balls:
Success! I think everyone was nice and full after the meal. Someone was a little irritated they didn’t get any:
What is one of your favorite meals?
You're such a good wife. I am going to come to you in the future for lessons, hahah! That squash looks SO SO SO good.
;). The squash was awesome! Simple dishes are always my favorite
You are so sweet to re-create the day! And Wow, loving everything you made, especially the cookies! :)
I LOVE pretzel thins with hummus - so delicious!
My favorite meal is breakfast - pancakes are my most favorite EVER. :)
Looks like Josh didn't miss out after all!! :)
Awwh Erica - you're so good to your man
Breakfast is my favorite meal for sure!
You are one amazing wife! That looks awesome, can I come to the next joshgiving?;)
I don't know why my name didn't link to my blog? oh well. xoxo
How cute is "Joshgiving" I love it!!! Looks like a most fabulous spread of food and that sage squash looks so tasty! My fave meal each year is our Xmas eve dinner, called Wigilia in Polish, where we have 7 dishes that are some of my faves and remind me of holidays growing up when my grandparents were still around :) pierogi and sauerkraut for the win! ;)
It's cookinfanatic btw - my iPhone hates me today ;) !!
oh ohh! your dad and deej carve turkeys the SAME WAY!!! did he learn from Bobby Flay?? haha two years ago Deej and I watched this food network special where Bobby taught us how to slice turkey into amazing thick slices and it's totally changed my love for turkey to even greater :) someday when we're SILs I'll participate in Joshgiving hahaha
awe...how sweet you are for giving Josh the Thanksgiving he missed! Racking up those "great wife" points! lol
haha. Thats awesome, but I doubt he learned it from Flay. My Dad is a meat master. He knows how to cook and cut any kind of meat.
Fun treat to celebrate Thanksgiving twice! I bet Josh was over the moon.
Aww I love how you gave Josh his very own Thanksgiving! One of my favorite meals is Chinese food!
Ah, what a great meal for Josh to have since he had been sick on the holiday!
i love this post@ i tried to comment at work the other day but i could not :( Love that you were able to celebrate and love the pic of you pooch-adorable!
Oh my gosh you are too cute!! Love that Josh got his Thanksgiving celebration - and ending on that photo of Frank is too perfect :)
What a delicious Joshgiving! As I said before, you are one awesome wife to create another Thanksgiving meal since he was sick the first time around. I could really go for some of that butternut squash, apple crisp and dough balls. YUM! And Frank cracks me up. :)
How fun! Everything looks amazing! Lucky Josh:)
You are so freaking sweet, Erica. Lucky Josh!! :)
awww you are amazing!
