Turkey recipe from The Chew~ Thanks to my dad for carving this guy.

Well just like always, Thanksgiving came and went. So fast. So fast that I barely took any pictures. I’m always on my phone, so this year I actually tried just laying low this day and spending time with my family! It was great. If anything, it reminded me how important family is, and just BEING. 

For so long I’ve tried to get to a certain status. Instagram followers, blog followers, blah blah blah. But at the end of the day, NONE of that really MATTERS. Family matters. Being with people. Loving people. So we sat around the table at dinner, and like every other year, we each stated what we were thankful for. Of course we were all thankful for each other. I realized how much my parents have sacrificed for us kids, and I just want them to be happy, and taken care of. So i’m starting a go fund me…I KID I KID!!!! No go fund me. LOL. I do though, want my parents and family to be happy and taken care of. I can start doing that by loving them. And just caring for them. Like REALLY CARING.

I salted this over night, and then did the compound butter under the skin before baking!

These brussels are so easy. Cut ends off, and cut in half, flash fry in your oil of choice for 2-3 min, and then salt and pepper. YUM.

Ps. ON a food note, I made my faves, Pioneer Woman’s Creamy Mashed Potatoes, Pan seared Brussel Sprouts, STUFFING, homemade bread, and of course Turkey!!!!! Hope you all had a great Thanksgiving!!!
