This year, we had our first Thanksgiving dinner at home, just the three of us. We had planned to have some people over, but we procrastinated extending invitations. Despite our lack of numbers, we still cooked enough food for a small army.
We had a 15 pound turkey, gravy, two dozen rolls, mashed potatoes, sweet potato casserole, green beans, cranberry sauce, stuffing and four different pies--pumpkin, apple, coconut cream and blueberry. I, of course, forgot to take very many pictures.
Our turkey turned out quite lovely and delicious. We did it in a bag this year. We did wish we had a good roasting pan, so we went ahead and bought one at a Black Friday sale.
Abby loves pie just like her daddy. When I asked her what she wanted for lunch yesterday, she said, "PIE!"
We had a fun day spending time together. Cooking Thanksgiving dinner is a big job, especially doing all the dishes. There may still be a few that aren't done yet. Shhhh, don't tell.
