A photo roundup of our 2011 Thanksgiving Dinner.
Happy post-Thanksgiving! I hope each & every one of you ate to your heart’s content and were able to spend time with your loved ones. Haha, the cheesy picture above is me in front of all the food I made on Thanksgiving :)
I first wanted to do an entry with all my Thanksgiving recipes but then I decided against it. I will save it for next year, it makes more sense, no? Plus, this was my first year doing an entire Thanksgiving feast and was new into this blogging thing so I didn’t have any recipes prepared for the week-long Thanksgiving blog posts. However, I will post the pumpkin crème brûlée recipe sometime this week because I think it’s a dessert you should NOT miss out on! It was a huge hit with my family & guests.
So, instead of a recipe round-up, I’ll do a picture round-up of everything I made and some pictures that I took throughout the day with family and our guests. I hope you enjoy! If you see something that you’re just dying for the recipe (like, you can’t wait ’til next year), feel free to drop me a line in the comments section :)
Surprisingly, for my first time cooking turkey, I didn’t mess it up! Yay! I brined it the night before and it truly makes a huge difference! My turkey doesn’t look as dark as other turkeys because I put foil all over him. I was afraid he’d burn and that the meat would be dried out.
As you can see, I had a wonderful Thanksgiving. I’m so thankful for my family, friends, and boyfriend. It’s so nice to be able to spend the holidays with the ones you love. I’m so thankful for all the followers I have and all my new foodie blog friends. Can’t wait to someday meet you all at a conference or something!
Have a wonderful day snatching up the great deals or spending more time with family..and of course, eating leftovers!! I, on the other hand, will enjoy sitting at work — yeah, can you believe the government didn’t let us have the day off? Nonsense!
