Quite a plate. Ours just came out of the oven. Will be having mostly turkey, stuffing, cranberries, some pumpkin puree and Cuvee Blanc. The bird is a 16 lb stuffed Tom that we roasted for 4 hr 25 min at 330*F. We're letting it sit for 25 minutes before I begin hacking it up.
Wonderful day back at you MS Mofet.

Thank you.

My hub cleaned that plate and had seconds on turkey and some of my mashed taters and gravy. LOL

Thanksgiving dinner here. Roasted turkey breast, which I brined for a few hours. Since stuffing is my favorite part of the thanksgiving meal and when I say "stuffing" I mean "stuffing" I actually stuffed the neck pouch, there was lots of skin to pull over, I just skewered it shut!
We will also have mashed potatoes, gravy, sautéd brussels sprouts and and our family tradition broccoli/cauliflower casserole. Alas! :-( I forgot to buy a yam or two so none for me today. DH won't eat them so it's no loss to him. Didn't want to make buns as we still have lots of the buns I made the other day for our Philly cheese steak sandwiches. We will just warm them, it's just the two of us so no biggie. Oh, homemade cranberry sauce and pumpkin pie with whipped cream for dessert.

We had:

Roast duck.
Mashed potatoes.
Cranberry sauce (with a hint of orange).
Creamed peas.

Peach pie with 'nilla ice cream will be in a bit.

I'll be eating dinner later.
So far all I'm sure of is pumpkin pie (homemade is somebody's kitchen) and COOL WHIP!
