Thanksgiving 2011 was the first year I had ever cooked the entire meal myself. I did ton of prep and made as much ahead of time as possible. It was a challenge but ultimately, it was a great experience and very rewarding.
My mother-in-law created a beautiful and festive tablescape with her gorgeous china.
Recipe Recap of the Meal:
Sourdough Boule (plain and seeded)
Homemade Cranberry Sauce
Brussel Srouts with Shallots and Pancetta
Recipe Recap of the Desserts:
Classic Pecan Pie
Vanilla Bean Ice Cream
And you all know what the best thing is. A fridge full of leftovers (and other goodies from our trip such as Yuengling and Frank Pepe’s):
Happy (after) Thanksgiving! Everything looks delicious – from the table to the leftovers! I read your preparations and I KNOW the meal was amazing!
