If there’s ever a day to be friends or family of “The Pioneer Woman” Ree Drummond, today would be that day. Can you imagine the spread for her Thanksgiving meal? While the famous chef didn’t share everything from her family’s meal today, she did post some of the aftermath alongside her foster son, Jamar.
Most of the Drummond family came together to celebrate Thanksgiving in their Osage County hometown. Ree and her husband, Ladd, own a working ranch in Pawhuska, Oklahoma where they’ve raised their four kids and a foster son.
From Drummond’s Instagram Story today, it looks like most of her kids are back in town for the holiday. Her two daughters are each home, including the couple’s eldest daughter, Alex, and her husband. Additionally, their younger daughter, Paige, is home from the University of Arkansas. Jamar is also on break from college where he attends the University of Central Oklahoma.
As for Ladd and Ree Drummond’s other two sons, the Food Network star’s youngest son, Todd, is a senior in high school. So he’s the only child left before the famous Oklahoma couple are empty nesters. However, their eldest son, Bryce, who is a backup quarterback for the University of North Texas Mean Green, didn’t make it home this year.
Following what was surely an amazing Thanksgiving meal, Drummond took a moment to snap a pic of herself and Jamar.
“Chillin’, relaxin’, laughin’, and about two seconds away from a tryptophan nap. Also, those are not my eyebrows, they’re shadows from my glasses. Remind me not to wear these glasses again. Hope you’re all having a happy day! I used squirt whipped cream on my from scratch pecan pie. Bye,” Ree Drummond wrote in her Thanksgiving post.
‘Pioneer Woman’ Ree Drummond’s Favorite Thanksgiving Dish
On her The Pioneer Woman cooking show, Ree Drummond welcomes viewers into the kitchen of her family’s ranch. But when it comes to holiday meals like Thanksgiving, you just know Drummond has something extra special up her sleeve.
According to Fox News, Ree Drummond is like anyone else and has some go-to items she cooks on Thanksgiving. Many of the dishes are down-home classics, as most would expect. For example, the popular chef considers her cornbread dressing and mashed potatoes favorites of the holiday. Yet they don’t stop there.
In addition to the two classics, she also makes homemade cranberry sauce. Not the stuff from the can, because, well, of course she does. If you haven’t noticed though, we’re missing a favorite Thanksgiving dessert. Drummond has made her love of sweets well-known over the years, so there’s no way she would leave them out. In fact, her favorite Thanksgiving dessert is her homemade Nantucket cranberry pie.
