Quiet THANKSGIVING at Grandma's House

Because of extreme road conditions this year we didn't make our trek north to celebrate Thanksgiving with family in Utah Valley. Instead we stayed home and have a quiet DINNER in warm St. George while the rain locally and snows on the roads made travel conditions extremely dangerous. Seems the older we get, the less we want to risk our lives traveling anywhere. That's why we live in Southern Utah-no snow only rarely and then usually gone in a day. It was a perfectly peaceful day though quiet.

My ever helpful hubby whether cooking or cleaning he's there!
Just learning how to take selfies, not sure I like the closeups!

We bought a large chicken cause we didn't need a turkey.
Cooked in a bag with poultry seasoning and butter and it was tender and juicy 
Forgot how much work it was for all the sides!
Never made green bean casserole before-it was so so!
Dressing and chicken gravy was a cinch with mixes
Mrs. Rhodes rolls and cranberries with orange juice were good.


  1. Looks like you'll have food for several meals there, the benefit of staying home and cooking. I do miss left overs.

  2. This looks really delicious, Lin. Thanks for putting this together and for sharing it. Glad you had a nice quiet Thanksgiving.
