Happy Feasting

27 11 2010

Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday of the year. There’s great food, great weather (tights with dresses and stomping around in puddles with rain boots on anyone?), and a focus on great times with friends and family. Did I mention the food? Now, food pics in general can be really unattractive. Thanksgiving food pics? The worst in the bunch, I think…But!  Here are a few shots from our Thanksgiving anyway.

The hubby’s amazing pecan pie, made from my mother’s recipe (the best pecan pie):

We had 2 turkeys from our meat CSA, loads of stuffing, mashed potatoes, gravy, cranberry sauce from a can served in slices with the can rings fully apparent, shrimp and crab molds with crackers, cheese galore, roasted tomatoes, meats, candied nuts, cheese breadsticks, stuffed peppers, sausage and eggplant rice dressing, turnip soup, onion dip, ham, preserved walnuts with Roquefort on toast, green bean casserole, deviled eggs, mac n cheese, scalloped potatoes, and pies pies pies.  You’ll be shocked to hear that with all that food we didn’t even touch the second turkey.

The leftovers plus the 6 quarts of turkey stock will be made into amazing things…

all those other things (mac & cheese?) do sound delicious… but if you only cooked 1 turkey, there would not be enough, eh!
your broth looks divine!

The stock really turned out well. Fresh from the fridge it is a solid mass of jiggling turkey goodness.
