Our Thanksgiving Table | Home & Family

This year we celebrated Thanksgiving the day after the holiday. So, while many people were out shopping the Black Friday deals, we were getting ready for our Thanksgiving feast.

Our guests for the afternoon were my sister and brother-in-law, who drove from Clinton, South Carolina to enjoy a belated Thanksgiving meal, and to introduce us to a southern tradition we’d never tried before. Fried Turkey.
