Ignore my face – Marie Callender’s did right by us

Hot hubby Michael and I have been cooking all morning, but I was reminded of the time we did a ‘pre-cooked’ Thanksgiving meal from Marie Callender’s.

p.s. it turned out tasty, but we like our family tradition-recipes 🙂

We are a household that cooks on the holidays. In the past several years, Michael has become more and more the ‘foodie,’ which bodes well for me 🙂

Michael does his Food Network & New Jersey Italian thing, and I offer my southern/soul food cuisine.

But I thought I’d do a little #TBT when in 2013 we experimented with a prepared Thanksgiving meal from Marie Callenders.

Like the original Pilgrims, Michael returns from foraging in the wilderness for our Thanksgiving feast.
p.s. check out the bicep.  Nice, right?

Armed with my cookbooks, I’m taken a bit aback.

Michael poses to show how hard it is to unpack the box from MC. Note the flour splashed on his face…

“Look at me!  Look at all I prepared!”

Intimate but bountiful.  OK – I’m loving the ease of all this.

The glass table top helps to tell the backstage story of what’s going on down under…

This pic represents pure love.  Not thinking it’s love of Michael and I, but “pure love….”

I made Michael take this cheesy pic.  Thanks to wonder dog Bruno for photog duties.
