YES I am aware that Thanksgiving was a week ago and YES I am sorry that it has taken me so long to share mine with you and YES those are mini pecan pies and YES they were DIVINE! :)
It was worth the wait wasn't it!?!
Anyway, for the second year in a row we had Thanksgiving here in Missoula, MT.
Definitely weird to not be in MN with family, but so thankful to have great friends here that we could share the holiday with.
I was on call for work so I knew I couldn't commit to cooking an entire Thanksgiving feast (much to my dismay), but I was lucky enough that my great friend Sarah took on the challenge.
Sarah and her husband Mike made practically the entire meal, while Logan and I brought a few extra items that I was able to put together in no time.
I was lucky enough to make it through the whole meal without getting called into work, another thing to be thankful for! :)
So I just wanted to share with you all the three things that I made
1) Mini Pecan Pies
2)Dug's Famous Coleslaw (uncle Dug that is)
3) Cashman Cornbread corn hotdish
