I made a Latin chicken soup with rice that was incredible with garlic bread to dip into it.

Time is what keeps everything from happening all at once.

Turkey - brined in apple cider, nutmeg, cloves and brown sugar. Stuffed with orange sections, lemon sections, apple chunks, chopped onion sage, rosemary and thyme.

Whipped Youkon Gold mashed potatoes, mashed turnips, green bean casserole biscuits and homemade pumpkin pie for dessert.

Yup! We ate.

One difference between a cook and a chef is that the cook mows the lawn, while the bread is rising.

Turkey, baked sweet potatoes, yukon gold mashed potatoes, string beans, cranberry sauce, stuffing and of course pumpkin pie with whip cream ( the real thing, not cool whip and not in the can) I got the free 18 lb turkey, now have enough leftovers for at least 5 meals . I put the meat in 5 separate Food saver bags, so I can just grab a bag which has enough for a meal for 2 people.

I haven't eaten yet. I am busy cooking for tomorrow. We are have thanksgiving then. So far I have made the Dressing, Sweet Potato Casserole, used a Mellon baller to cut jelled Cranberry Sauce (looks cute), made pie dough, getting ready to roll out the dough and finish the pies(pumpkin, apple and pear). I still have to make the rolls. Tomorrow I will cook the turkey parts and make the gravy and mashed white potatoes and the Glorified Cauliflower. By the time I am done my Deep Fried Turkey Beasts and Stuffed Ham should arrive. I can't Waite.

we had turkey, dressing, mashed potatoes, gravy, green beans, cranberry relish, green salad, and I think everyone brought 2 pies "just in case". So there were seriously like 16 or 18 pies for 8 people.

Everybody took pies home with them! :)

Since I'm the only one who will even attempt Thanksgiving Dinner in my house and I hate handling raw poultry of any kind I made a Thanksgiving Casserole w/ a broccoli cheese stuffing (new recipe and it's awesome), Gullivers Corn (new recipe and it's awesome), mashed potatoes, sweet potatoes, mashed turnips (a double batch so I can live on them for a few days), jellied cranberry sauce, gravy and crescent rolls. For dessert, pecan pie and chocolate silk pie.

Finally things have started clicking for me, my knees, my elbows, my back, etc...
