Our First Thanksgiving

This year is the very first year that we stayed at home as a family and made our very own Thanksgiving dinner.  It was a blast!  We looked up yummy recipes from Food Network’s website and we decided brine our turkey, as per Alton Brown’s suggestion.  We had a feast and it was delicious!  It was really nice having the intimate family time, talking to the kids about our Thanksgiving traditions when we were little, having them help prepare the meal, and then sharing what everyone is thankful for.  It was awesome, and something I look forward to doing as our Thanksgiving tradition.

Getting ready to finally dig into our lovely meal!  We had turkey, wild mushroom dressing, green bean casserole, mashed potatoes, rolls, sugared cranberries and a super yummy easy freezy pumpkin pie!


Sara was having too much fun!  Silly girl!


Doesn’t the pie just look delicious?  It was a great twist on the classic pumpkin pie!
