Thanksgiving Weekend Recap

So, my first real turkey turned out great with only a few meltdowns the night before!  The menu consisted of - 

Appetizers:
Cranberry Meatballs
Buffalo Chicken Wing Dip
Cheese and Crackers

Dinner:
Turkey and Gravy
Mashed Potatoes
Sweet Potatoes
Corn Casserole
Stuffing
Blue Cheese and Bacon Salad
Cheese Biscuits

Desserts:
Dutch Apple Pie
Pumpkin Swirl Cheesecake
Hot Mulled Apple Cider

It was all pretty delicious if I do say so myself!  :-)

On Friday we got up at 4am (yes FOUR in the morning) to go shopping.  Here's the thing, in Minneapolis there are Targets and Best Buys every 3 feet so they never had those crazy lines like on TV.  That is not the case here, that's for sure.

Oh and we went to Lark Creek Steakhouse on Sunday night and it was seriously amazing!

It was great having the in-laws in town, but we let them have our bed and I must admit that I can't wait to not sleep on an air mattress tonight!  My back will thank me.

T-minus 4 days until Vegas!  (And probably another air mattress...)
