Our first Thanksgiving went pretty well. We put the turkey in about 9:00 AM this morning and it was ready shortly before 2:00 PM, which was only an hour after we were shooting for. Not too shabby.
We had a feast of turkey, stuffing, green bean cassarole, mashed potatoes, sweet potatoes, carrot salad, and corn bread. Mmmmm so much good food. We also had dessert of pumpkin pie, cherry pie, and chocolate chip cookie and cream tort. (See post below for recipe.)
We ate about 2:15 and were finished and had everything cleaned up by 3:45. Then, everybody just sat and relaxed for a while.
