Thankful

It's been so nice coming home for Thanksgiving. I've enjoyed seeing lots of family and friends that I haven't seen in almost a year. One of my favorite things about coming home is the food. Both of my parent are amazing cooks and we've been enjoying every second of it! The food below wasn't even a fourth of what we had on Thanksgiving day. It was a great day!

Boiling collards 

Dad grilled about 70 Boston Butts on Wednesday for people who wanted one for the holiday. 

 
The best part about grilling butts... pulling the crispy pieces off the grill!

Dad's homemade bbq sauce that is amazing. 
It's so good we packaged it into 200+ mason jars for our wedding favors last year! 

Mom's homemade pecan pies

My aunt made me homemade apple cider - my favorite! And it makes the house smell amazing.

Sadie making the dressing!

The turkey going in the fryer.
