My Life on Instagram: Thanksgiving

This year was the first year that my husband and I celebrated Thanksgiving Day without our extended family since we're in England and they're still in the States. We decided to keep it pretty minimal so we wouldn't have a bunch of left-overs so we got a Holiday sandwich (bacon, turkey, stuffing and cranberry sauce) from a local sandwich shop and I made green bean casserole (the recipe was on the Campbell's Mushroom Soup label) to eat for lunch and dinner. No Thanksgiving would be complete without pumpkin pie and we also had some pre-made pumpkin pie cheesecake for desert.

My husband (and it seems everyone we know) was feeling a bit under-the-weather on Thanksgiving with a really nasty cold, so for entertainment I busted out some Thanksgiving and food related movies. Planes, Trains, and Automobiles is a MUST WATCH on Thanksgiving as well as the Macy's Thanksgiving Day parade. We also watched the movie, House of Yes.


Earlier in the week I experimented by making beer bread using some German weiss beer that my husband had in the fridge. It was a big hit and my husband and I consumed it in less than 2 days. 

I hope you all had a Happy Thanksgiving (and/or Happy Hanukkah, Happy Birthday or regular old Thursday)!
