Thanks Loads

Home projects were not the only thing that we did on Thanksgiving. We did manage to make some food and stuff our faces:

Cranberry sauce (made with orange juice)


Mushroom Gravy

Green beans washed for green bean casserole

Breaded and fried shallots to top the green bean casserole

Green bean casserole

Boiling potatoes to be mashed

Buttermilk mashed potatoes

Opening our tofurky

Tofurky (before basting) with veggies prior to roasting

The compost was happy

The dogs were happy
(we found some organic boneless skinless chicken breasts in the freezer).

And the humans were happy.

(This is for you Betty and Dave, my most loyal readers)

Right before we plated our food we popped a pecan pie in the oven and set the timer for 30 minutes.

I failed to get "after" shots of all the food after it was all done cooking. We were so hungry and it was getting late and we ate in record time.

Just as we sat down to enjoy our meal we* knocked over a glass of water. Then we cleaned it up. Then we* knocked over a glass of wine. Then we cleaned that up. Then we finally ate and when we came up for air, there was still 15 minutes left on the timer. Sometimes this is just how life goes. Do you have holidays like this?

*And by 'we' I mean the bf. But he made the pie which rocked so he is forgiven.
