hmmm...Thanksgiving in December?

I wouldn't want to lose my title as the worst.blogger.ever... so I just haddd to wait till Dec 15 to put up a post about the Thanksgiving holiday. Naturally.

The hubs and I were so lucky and blessed to have my entire family come from OH to NC. Mom, Dad, and both of my younger brothers! The trip was short but sweet and full of great memories.

This was the first time hubs and I had cooked Thanksgiving and lets just say, its a lot of work. I guess I knew that... but at the end of the day, I had never been so happy to put my feet up with a glass of wine!

Our Menu:
Deviled Eggs (BH&G cookbook - just the classic)
Julia Child's French Onion Soup
Ultimate Stuffed Potatoes (Southern Living Cookbook)
Bourbon-Cranberry Compote
Carmelized Onion and Herb Stuffing
Classic Campbells Green Bean Casserole (at the request of the hubs)
Cresent Rolls - out of a tube, I'm ashamed :(
Molasses Brined Turkey with Gingersnap Gravy

and for dessert... my hubs' famous spiced pumpkin cheesecake :)

Here are some pictures from the day...

GeGe and Hubs making cheesecake
I knew there was a reason I married him!

Luckily we have a big roaster that fit our 20lb turkey so I could still use the oven for other things!

Finally enjoying the fruits of our labor

I love me some carbs and bacon

Best mom and dad ever!
