Gobble, Gobble

Well… Gobble, Gobble Day is almost over, and who doesn’t love a hubby (and a mommy and step-daddy that remains pictureless) who does the dishes?

I had such a great day. It’s always been a dream of mine to have a house that’s big enough to have my family over for the holidays. I think our home is a bit small, but we make it work!

Like a dork, I didn’t get a pic of the whole bird, all pretty and brown, but I did snap one of hubby doing his first ever carving (great job babe!)…

I tell you what. That brine must’ve done the trick, cause step-daddy declared it was the best he’d ever tasted. That made me feel better about the chocolate-pecan pie that I made for him that he wasn’t too keen on (I don’t think)… The chocolate was just too chocolaty. Later when everyone went home, I warmed up a piece in the micro for 30 seconds, and all melty it was much better.

I also managed to snap a shot of the berry pie and the mashed tators (which were unbelievable, definitely the best EVER, I think my little-little bro could have eaten the whole tureen of them himself! For the recipe, go here).

The berry pie looked very rustic, atleast that’s what I’m calling my messy woven crust… rustic!





Here’s a coupla pics of the table with all the china and crystal…

My momma bought me the butter dish awhile back and we hadn’t realized how perfectly it went with my china. Everything looked so pretty and girly and sparkly!

And now, I’m so sad, I have to take down my turkey friends… Say “bye!” ‘til next year J
