Thanksgiving Candlelight Dinner for Two

Thanksgiving Candlelight Dinner for Two

Thank you for all the wonderful holiday wishes. My daughter and I enjoyed a cozy, peaceful candlelight dinner for two.

We feasted on roast chicken, cornbread stuffing, green beans, corn pudding, mashed potatoes, cranberry sauce, and sweet potato casserole (my favorite). What a memorable day.

For dessert, my daughter requested homemade apple pie. She helped me prepare and serve the entire meal.

    Beautiful shots of your candlelight dinner. My Thanksgiving was wonderful with my husband’s best-ever pumpkin pie. It more than made up for the year he forgot to add the sugar.

      LOL, I’ll bet it does! When my daughter was young and just learning how to cook, she accidentally used powdered sugar in a cake recipe and then figured she’d make up for the mistake by using granulated sugar in the icing. We still laugh about it today.

    Love the warm glow of your Thanksgiving photos. Our turkey was super moist and homemade cranberry sauce added a special pizazz.

      Thank you, Elena. I’m helping my sister move into her new home this weeekend, so it’s a happy but busy time. Hope your weekend is going well, too.
