Let's Eat! (a lot) - The Cuttlebug Spot

Hi all! Hope all of you are having a wonderful Tuesday! : ) Here's my post for The Cuttlebug Spot. This week we are supposed to make Thanksgiving Dinner Invites. I was going to make a more formal invite but I realized most of our family gatherings are very casual so I decided to make a rather colorful, a bit humorous one... If there are two things that this family is good at, it's cooking and eating. We all love to gather around the table and eat some good food. Back in the Philippines, we are a family of cooks... My mom is a culinary instructor, my dad is the family cook and four years ago I married into a family of wonderful cooks too! I always look forward to the holidays because the food we serve on our table is always superb. So whoever gets invited to these gatherings better be rolling up their sleeves when they eat with us because even if we serve four to five course meals, we eat them like we mean it! : )
