On Wednesday afternoon the fiancé and I hopped a Vamoose bus in New York City and landed in Northern Virginia only 5 and a half hours later, where Steph and her fiance swooped us up for four days of fun, food, and crafting. We celebrated Thanksgiving day with a homemade Korean soup for lunch and Indian takeout for dinner and saved the big feast for Friday, so that our little brother (who is not so little now at 27 years old) could join in on the festivities.
What followed was lots of gluten-free stuffing, gluten-free meatloaf, and gluten-free pumpkin pie, South Carolina treats like sweet potato butter and Scuppernong, belated birthday and engagement gifts, a crafting day for homemade ornaments, a trip to the hair salon, episodes of “The Sing Off” and “Property Brothers,” a wild Sunday school class of 32 seven year olds, a giant Christmas tree, and a coffee table full of Chik-Fil-A. Lots and lots of Chik-Fil-A.
I hope you all had a great Thanksgiving!
p.s. Scuppernong juice is non-alcoholic but tastes like wine. I loved it.
p.p.s. The recipe for gluten-free meatloaf is right here.
p.p.p.s. I’ll be sharing recipes for our other favorite gluten-free Thanksgiving treats soon in case you’re still planning your Christmas menu!
