IMG_2399Thanksgiving came early for Twenty Something SA when the La Cantera Hill Country Resort invited us to a Thanksgiving menu preview that we couldn’t turn down. SweetFire Kitchen, the newest restaurant on the La Cantera Resort property, will feature a Thanksgiving buffet for all to enjoy. Along with traditional dishes, unique, country inspired dishes will grace the table on Thursday, November 26th as well.

Hunger, warmth and excitement radiated off my body as the waiter served us a glass of Cabernet as we found our seat around the elongated, rectangular table decorated with mini pumpkins, colorful gourds and gorgeous white candles inside of glass cases.

The menu was composed of classic favorites including a slow roasted turkey with numerous pots of gravy on the table, smoked prime rib, traditional stuffing, glazed yams, whipped potatoes (!), and green beans with mushrooms.

Ultimate favorites included the charcuterie board, the turkey, mashed potatoes and the sweet, glazed yams.
