Family Thanksgiving

This years Thanksgiving my family shared the duties of making our meal. My grandparents made the turkey and provided some of the dessert. My Aunt and Uncle brought a suger dessert. My parents made rice stuffing and masshed potatoes. I made a veggie plater with homemade hummus, bake carrots and brussel sprouts.

Baked carrots

I found the recipe at this blog.

Next time I am going to cook for quite a bit longer. Maybe 2x as long as the recipe calls for. I like carrots to be very soft.

My Mom’s mashed potatoes

-I planned on making potatoes but stupidly forgot to buy them. My parents saved the day by having some on hand.
