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 is so proud.|
|Now, wait a minute…. Oven? Microwave?|
|Michael attempts to help with the mashed potatoes|
|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.|
|“Not yet, kids…. not yet….”|
|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.|
|Ok, I have to admit – Marie Callender’s rocked Thanksgiving this year|
