happy thanksgiving!

What a wonderful holiday! first of all i do want to say how thankful i am for the best family and friends a girl could ask for, i just wish we were all a little closer... for those of you that couldn't make it to Indiana this year (and that was all of you :) i wanted to share our meal with you through pictures, it was delicious if i do say so myself.
the menu was: sage roasted turkey, homemade gravy, roasted garlic mashed potatoes, apricot-ginger cranberry sauce, cornbread and cranberry stuffing, brown butter and almond green beans and sausage stuffed mushrooms. nate doesn't really care for the stuffing and cranberry sauce, so the mushrooms were especially made for him. and to top it all off, our favorite apple pie recipe that has granny smith apples, a crumb topping and the most amazing custard filling.

we saw the stuffed mushrooms on one of food network's holiday specials, here's the recipe, they are delicious. i hope everyone's day was filled with good memories and good food. maybe next year everyone can come here?

This looks like an AMAZING meal! Good job organizing the menu. I think I would have been just as happy eating your meal as ours. (if not more so :o) Next time I am Indiana I expect such treatment!!!

Wow! I'm drooling over here, now I'm sad that I didn't make myself a Thanksgiving dinner! Oh well, I do have a lot of ham leftover from the dinner for 200! You are such a gourmet Jes, I'm so impressed.
