Tales from the Hill's Country

Quips, stories and observations from our adventures in marriage and parenting (as told by Katie).

Friday, November 26, 2010


Chris' brother, Justin and his wife, Laura live next door to PD. My parents parked their motor home in the driveway between the two houses, adding to the Hill compound.

Thanksgiving morning all three kitchens were busy with flour, kitchen-aids and baking. (And adorable aprons made by my mom.)

After we prepared our dishes we paraded across the street where the Cedars have been hosting Thanksgiving dinner for over 30 years! We had six turkeys, three dressings, 5 pies and over a dozen side dishes!

In addition to the usual Thanksgiving dishes, we also had entries to The Iron Chef: Thanksgiving edition. The secret ingredient was cranberries. The three judges had a tough job discriminating the tastes of six different cranberry dishes.
The third place was candied cranberries made by Aunt Donna, second was cranberry pinwheels made by my dad and the first place winner was... me! The award winning dish? Pumpkin Cranberry Bread.

After naps and movies, we gathered back together for a wii bowling tournament, Dance Dance Revolution showcase and the end of a great Aggie football game.
