Thanks for waiting patiently as my blog emerges from the depths of the four-day weekend. I'm sure you could barely contain your excitement to hear about how my Thanksgiving went, even though most, if not all, of you (three) readers were actually there to celebrate it with me.
So, I don't have to go on and on about how fabulous it was. But considering I was in the kitchen for a good 10 hours on Thursday cooking enough food to feed a small (Indonesian) colony, I think the menu warrants at least a few words of self-appreciation.
So please join me on my revisit to what I will call: Planet Thanksgiving!
First, we'll soar through clouds of roasted garlic and cream cheese mashed potatoes.
Then journey across a hot desert of sausage and apple stuffing/dressing.
We'll romp through green fields of creamed spinach and corn.
And trek rocky mountains of baked sweet potatoes and apples.
We'll meet a monstrous roasted turkey.
But we'll conquer it, like we do with the rest of the world.
Also, let's not forget the cranberry sauce (its individual photo looks quite murderous, which is why I didn't include it), the homemade turkey gravy (that one I just forgot about), the moist and savory corn spoonbread à la Irene, and a luscious pumpkin pecan dessert perfected by Greg's mom.
Thanks for coming along, and happy leftovers!
