The title of this post comes from Adam Sandlers "thanksgiving" song, if you are wondering!
I hope you all had a wonderful, delicious, family filled thanksgiving! This year my family and I spent it in Cape Cod. We have a house there and very close friends of ours have a house there as well. The thanksgiving feast was at our family friends house.
Our place settings, The plates had birds on them. How appropriate!
We each had a chocolate turkey on our plates!

We played some shuffleboard before the festivities.
We were all served some Brocolli and Fennel soup made by my mom. This was served as we watched some football, played some shuffleboard and caught up with each other! It was beyond delicious. Super healthy and so light. I will get the recipe and post it from my mom.
Some moist, chewy, buttery Squash rolls were served with the soup. The color reminded me of egg bagels.
Mashed sweet potatoes are under there, I promise! one half with 'mellows, one half with pecan/brown sugar.
After the broiling process.
