Happy Thanksgiving Weekend!

Oh perfect pumpkin pie, we hardly knew ye.

I know for more than a few of you tonight is your second round of Thanksgiving feasts. How your stomachs will be able to make way for all that deliciousness once more, I'm not sure. Not even a day in between seems like enough time after all we ate on Thursday! We had a wonderful Thanksgiving with my Mom, and the three (and a half - Liam really only ate the turkey) of us worked like the perfect kitchen team. We said we'd like to sit down at the table around 4:45, and I'll be damned if we didn't sit down within minutes of our estimated time! If only Mom was around all the time - then every meal would make it to the table on time (maybe).

We enjoyed Champagne (thanks, Mom!), the perfect turkey (thanks, Buck!) and all the trimmings including my noodles, Mom's stuffing and cranberry relish, pumpkin bread, green beans sauteed with shallots and my pumpkin pie with cinnamon whipped cream. A nice Rosé rounded out the meal perfectly. No major mishaps to report, which doesn't make for an exciting post, but I'm dying to hear yours! Any funny mishaps or major mishaps out there? Share them in the comments!
