Family and feast

When some people get married they divide up holiday time between the two families and only get one holiday meal or day together. Well, although Brandon and I went down to his mom's for Thanksgiving and had a wonderful meal, we got spoiled and had a repeat on Sunday with my family! That was such a bonus, because I really missed my family on my first Thanksgiving away. We also celebrated Landon's birthday on Sunday. I think my caloric intake this weekend was about as much as most people consume in a whole month! But it was worth it! I have great cooks in my family and Brandon's, so I guess I better start becoming one too. 

My contribution, which I got many compliments on was the rolls. At both family gatherings I made these Buttermilk Rolls. I must give credit where credit is due. If you want to impress, follow the link and make them for your next family gathering!

HOLY COW! I will just add...these rolls were actually small loaves of bread, sweet and soft, buttery on top...ummmmm. If I wasn't still full from eating them last night I would have had them for breakfast! Brittany won the prize for best addition to the dinner!!!

Happy Thanksgiving!! It looks like you had a great time. I usually just make rhoades rolls, but now you have inspired me to be ambitious. Those look SO yummy. I just might have to give them a try this next week. Thanks for posting the recipe
