Happy Thanksgiving

Did you have a wonderful Thanksgiving? Mine was very different than usual but wonderful non-the-less.  We went from ten people for dinner last year to three of us this year!  That's a big change. 

We cooked a turkey after using this wonderful recipie to brine it.  I goofed and began the brining the turkey a whole day early....Ops!!

It ended up not mattering at all as this was the moistest, most flavorable turkey we have ever had!!

We used several new recipies  and ended up with a spectacular meal! 


We roasted herbed green beans, carrots, butternut squash and turnups tossed lightly with sage, rosemarry, thyme and a touch of olive oil.  Yumm

Then we mixed it up a bit with this brussel sprouts recipie that my friend Cheryl linked me up to.

Have fun enjoying leftovers, and remembering your blessings!


  1. Oh yes, it was a wonderfuler turkey indeed!!!!

  2. Glad your turkey was a success. Are you believer in the brine now?

  3. Looks delicious, Kathy! I can tell by the smiles that you made some wonderful new memories.
    We enjoyed our first Thanksgiving as grandparents and we made our traditional sweet potato souffle.
