this year with my mom and sister out of town until turkey-day-morning, my dad and i were responsible for thanksgiving in all of its glory.  terrifying i know.  but the mums prepared a suggested food list, necessary grocery list, and copied me some recipes.  thanksgiving eve, my dad drove down and we planned turkey timing and logistics, set the table, made pies, and ...appropriately, i think, watched the hunger games.
grape pie with kitty vents, apple pie, and chocolate pecan.  no picture of the pumpkin pie cheesecake, but it was a big hit.  and its on the instagram.

mi familia!

and in case you were wondering, i bought an 18 pound natural turkey.  peer pressure from my dad.  or would that be parental pressure?  mums suggested something smaller, but the allure of leftovers was strong.  here was the menu:
  • turkey, stuffing, and gravy
  • green bean casserole
  • smashed potatoes
  • rolls [premade by mums]
  • cranberry sauce - homemade and canned
  • some kind of squash
  • 7 fruit salad
  • brussels sprouts with bacon
  • grape pie [filling premade by mums]
  • apple pie
  • chocolate pecan pie
  • pumpkin cheesecake
