Ah, one of the best days of the year! Since we had such a good time (and since so many of our friends and family are far away) I thought I’d post our day here, with all the great pictures we took. Enjoy!
So the day got started rather early, as we still had a bunch of cooking to do. Actually, the day got started on Tuesday, when I was prepping for International Day of Baking Goodness (IDBG). Let me tell you, I don’t like mornings in the least, but there are 3 days of the year I happily get up during single digits: Disneyland Day, Christmas Day, and International Day of Baking Goodness. I had 13 things on the list to make this year, including prepping for Thanksgiving. So I began my prep on Tuesday, got up at 7:30 to cook on Wednesday (official IDBG) and only got through a few things. Ben, I miss you! We got through way more when you were in the kitchen with me.
Thanksgiving day also started rather early, what with all the cooking we had to do.
This is the morning cooking. Notice the pink camo. We live here now!
This is what we were doing so early in the morning. But don’t worry–it turned out most wonderful!
Here it is completely cooked along with the stuffing prep:
Then came time for pie! We used fresh pumpkin this year–those pumpkins are a bitch to get into at times. Dean had to break out the had saw when my sad little bread knife didn’t make a dent.
The table is set, guests arrive, let’s eat!
And that was basically the night. Good times with good friends and some good food. Loved it! We missed everyone who couldn’t be with us, and we hope you all had a happy Thanksgiving!
