Thanksgiving Recap…

Well…my little challenge was a success! I wanted to prove to myself that I could make an entire Thanksgiving Dinner myself so I asked my guests to come bearing alcohol alone! And…I did it! We had Turkey, Dressing, Gravy, Sweet Potato Casserole, Mashed Potatoes, Fresh baked rolls, green beans & pumpkin cheesecake with fresh whipped cream for dessert. MMMmmmmMMM. We have been eating left overs all week.

I am a little indifferent about the brine I used for my turkey. I know I didnt like the gravy, too sagey & sweet, but the turkey was just EH. Here are some pics of my Cider Brine:

Used an oven bag in a bucket & soaked it in this recipe.

Very thankful for my new french door fridge!!

And, my table, all set. I am a huge fan of real napkins, the easiest way to dress up a table!

I never took a picture of the final spread, so you will just have to use your imagination!
