I shared this on snapchat last week, but we had a change of plans for Thanksgiving a little last minute. My husband had to work and we all live in different towns, so it ended up being easiest to have it at our house.
We had already taken down most of the fall decorations and started on Christmas too, but it turned out to be a great Thanksgiving in Texas. I threw together a last minute table with some fall colors, pumpkins, and a simple setting. It was actually a lot less pressure to get everything right since it was so last minute. We had a great time, with delicious food.
Even though my husband had to be at work, he was able to sit down for lunch with us. I was grateful for that!
Ruger is obsessed with pumpkin! I’ve said this before, but it is so true! He is crazy about it lol. I made our favorite dairy-free pumpkin pie and a new recipe for cranberry pie bars. I will be sharing that recipe on Thursday! It will be great for Christmas! This dairy-free pumpkin pie has gotten really popular with readers. I had a few write me and say it turned out so good!
You can see how the cranberry pie bars look on Instagram! I think they turned out really pretty and so easy to make.
My Grammy makes the BEST carrot cake. She always brings it for the holiday’s and it is perfect. She is almost 87, so shes been baking this thing for more than 60 years 🙂
Another tradition is making these frosted cranberries. They are so pretty and perfect for the holidays! I also make them for Christmas and New Year’s Eve. We like them in addition to cranberry sauce, but they also make a great garnish.
If you end up trying out the recipe, you can also make them sugar free if you need too 🙂
My mom always makes the meat and it was delicious as always!
As I mentioned, most of my fall stuff is already packed up, so I just pulled out some fall colors I had around the house. Those little bowels that the bulldog shakers and pumpkins are on were my Grammy’s in the 60s. She gave them to me a few months ago, and I thought they had the best fall colors.
Now it’s time to finish decorating for Christmas! This is the first new ornament of the year and I LOVE IT! My mom knows me too well. Lucille Ball is my favorite 🙂
I will share some pretty Christmas pictures on Friday!
I hope you had a wonderful weekend!
