It's Thanksgiving after all!

Well, first we were going to have a small Thanksgiving feast for our family, then we were going to have a huge Thanksgiving feast for our family and Malachi's family, then that plan was canceled and we were going to meet up with Malachi's family at Waffle House for Thanksgiving (they wanted to stay into town since Malachi's grandfather was dying and eating at Waffle House was a bit of a tradition for them), then Malachi's grandfather died and Thanksgiving was canceled all together. Which I was bummed about. I love Thanksgiving. From Thanksgiving to New Years is my favorite time of year. I love the atmosphere. When I think of the holidays I think of family, love, warmth, and good food. So not having Thanksgiving was hard for me to swallow. Well, thanks to our bff JoJo...Thanksgiving is back on! She gave us a free turkey and how can you not have a Thanksgiving feast when you have a huge turkey sitting in your freezer! We are still kinda of bending the rules a little bit and having our Thanksgiving on Saturday since Malachi has to work tomorrow. But Thanksgiving on Saturday is better than no Thanksgiving at all! I'm so excited! This is the first Thanksgiving meal I am making all by myself. Last year Malachi and I had Thanksgiving at my parents house, so this time it is all on me and I'm so excited! I'm going to make a huge feast (too much food for two people so we are going to try and find someone to come over and help us eat all that food...but if not Malachi and I will just get fat off of all of it!).
Here is our meal plan for Saturday:
Roasted Turkey with Maple Cranberry Glaze
Sausage, Dried Cranberry, and Apple Stuffing
Green Beans
Garlic Mashed Potatoes
Cranberry Sauce
and my favorite Apple Pie!

Hopefully it will all turn out to be delicious! I'll post pictures and let you know how our feast turns out on Saturday!
Hope you all have a wonderful Thanksgiving!
