Aren't ya glad...

... Thanksgiving is over?
We had a wonderful traditional meal with family, and in keeping with the family tradition, everyone prepares a few dishes making it a lot easier on the host: turkey (me), prime rib roast (my sister-in-law C.), gravy (me), sweet potoatoes (cousin L. - old Sunset Mag. receipe), mashed potatoes (C.), green-bean casserole (C.), green salad (L.), savory onions (L.), home-made horseradish (cousin L. - old family receipe), canned cranberry sauce, pumpkin pie (me - Libby's can receipe), apple pie (me - my mother-in-law's receipe with ready-made crust), and mince-meat pie (C.). For the first time ever, I couldn't eat much at dinner, so thank goodness for leftovers.

My husband loves the Libby's pumpkin pie recipe so much that he made another one today, the day after! He also made some sort of casserole concoction for dinner tonight. For these two things, I am thankful.

Not over here yet! :) I am doing Thanksgiving today, since I worked on Thursday! Currently I am trying a new recipe, three-mushroom risotto...hope it turns out.

Wow, turkey AND prime rib! Oh, and the home-made horseradish, yum.

A dyspeptic turkey...but all those side dishes sound delicious. At Christmas I enjoy the sides more than the mains.

It all sounds wonderful, so much love from so many hands. The turkey looks like he ate too much corn!
