Thanksgiving Coma

Thanksgiving has always been my favorite holiday. It's all about family, friends, and food. No expectations of gifts. Just getting together and having a good time.

My family is notorious for going overboard at Yesterday, our feast consisted of:

Two types of cranberry sauce, turkey, ham, baked beans, green bean casserole, mashed potatoes, whiskey glazed sweet potatoes and apples, crackers and cheese, relish tray, dressing, gravy, jalapeno cornbread, deviled eggs, 7-layer salad, Hawaiian rolls, and probably some other things I'm forgetting about. Oh, and that was just the main food. For dessert we had cherry almond cookies, lemon cookies, fudge, chocolate pecan pie, pumpkin pie, sugar free chocolate pie, a trifle, pumpkin roll, and some other odds n ends.

How many people did we feed, you ask? Oh, 8 adults and 3 kids. Well, really 7 adults and 1 kid....the other adult and 2 kids ate somewhere else before coming here. Hahaha. Yes. We go a bit overboard.

So I have to say, my favorite things from yesterday were the mashed potatoes, deviled eggs, green bean casserole (which I made from cream of mushroom soup for this chica), and the chocolate pecan pie.

All of this to say, it was a ridiculously good meal....and I'm still stuffed. :-)
