A Thanksgiving Feast...in pictures.

40 comments /
Well, my left overs are pretty much picked over and all that remains is a bit of cranberry sauce in the bottom of the container...it left as fast as it arrived!! Thought I'd throw out a glimpse of what was on our Thanksgiving table. I'll try to post recipes and link them back to titles over time.... although, I may have to hunt some down, because I didn't make everything. There were 24 of us in all...and most of the time was spent telling stories, drinking wine, watching football and stuffing faces. I even forgot individual pictures of the rolls. Oh well...it was worth it! Big plate full of... Roast Turkey girli's Cranberry Sauce Spiced, Roasted Applesauce Sausage, Sage and Apple Dressing Good ol' Mashed Potatoes Turkey Gravy from the drippings Candied Sweet Potatoes Green Bean Casserole first year with cheese on it...undecided about that addition...surprisingly. Broccoli Salad Mac n' Cheese Sour Cream Biscuits...I guess they're actually called muffins, but I prefer to call them biscuits Pecan Pie Chocolate Pecan Pie Pumpkin Pie
Upside Down Apple Pie
Very full and happy belly :)
*UPDATE~ As I add recipes in separate posts...or if I have them in a post already, I will link them to the title under the photo!

  2. 24 people what a blast! I can understand why there is nothing left - did you cook two turkeys?

  3. Kenny...you're welcome at my table anytime :D

    Dog...right! No, one 17 lb-er and an extra breast. 7 of those guests were "unexpected"...which is more than fine...but in hindsight, we would have made 2 had we known!!

  17. I had no idea Head..but i tasted just as wonderful!! I forgot to say how delicious everything was just in case anyone doubted it, and I guess everything is pretty traditional..but then how could it not be? What else do people eat for Thanksgiving? Strike that Jaz brought in some ribs from their dinner..i dont get it, ribs for Thanksgiving? I dunno maybe thats normal. Next year I definitely wanna make some greens too, mmmm!

  19. It looks like you had an amazing time Heather!!!! I don't suppose you'd consider sending some leftovers by FedEx to a Canadian who has to wait until Christmas for turkey.

  29. This is food porn to extremes, basically. I might need a cold shower.

    Personally, I think the green bean casserole with cheese looks awesome. And those biscuits. Oh my god those biscuits look good. And all of the pies. I might have to come over to your place for Thanksgiving next year.
