A Thanksgiving success.

A day later and I am still full – it could have something to do with that midnight snack of key-lime pie. :D It was so great to have all my family together for Thanksgiving and enjoy the fine meal – you know, the one we all spend 20 hours preparing for and one hour eating? But, it was a great success! Here was my menu:

  • Brined Turkey (oh, so moist!)
  • All-Purpose gravy (my mother-in-law ate it out of the bowl, she loved it so much!)
  • Mashed sweet potatoes with orange and maple (delicious when cold, too)
  • Mashed potatoes (I used a food mill to get the perfectly smooth texture)
  • Saffron Rice with Corn (a Honduras tradition—very, very yummy!)
  • Rolls (can’t have enough carbs!)
  • Maple-Pecan pie
  • Key-Lime Pie
  • Cherry Pie
  • Blueberry Pie

The leftovers are overwhelming, but a nice turkey panini is quick to solve any anxiety of what to do! I am heading to the kitchen now to make a nice batch of pecan sweet rolls, the perfect brunch to relax after a long two-day kitchen stint.
