Thanksgiving 2013

Thanksgiving Plate 2013Our Thanksgiving was very low key this year.  I didn’t have a lot of time to do prep work because of other commitments during the week.  Wednesday I did as much as I could and then on Thanksgiving Day I had to finish up the rest.

Thankfully that wasn’t too much!

I made the mistake of going to the grocery store on Tuesday for some last minute items.  Yikes! I won’t be doing that again.

We had a huge turkey this year.  It was a half turkey that weighted in at 15lbs.  It looked enormous in the fridge and the roaster!

When all was said and done though, we didn’t have nearly as much leftover meat as I had feared.

I tried a new little twist with sweet potato pie that I think turned out pretty well.  I added in some eggnog and bourbon to the mix.

Bourbon always goes over well in this house.

Thanksgiving Table 2013We had the basics for sides: stuffing, mashed potatoes and gravy, and then some green beans.  No green bean casserole, just plain beans.

We ate dinner in our jammies and had the kitchen cleaned up by 4pm.  A very relaxing day which I’m calling a success!

Even though we didn’t go all out this year, dinner tasted perfect and the company as always, was the best.

How was your Thanksgiving?
