thanksgiving update... a little late

did i mention that i basically cooked our entire thanksgiving 2009 dinner? i think i forgot to mention that!

we were supposed to go to waxhaw for thanksgiving to spend the holiday with my mom & dad. thanksgiving @ my mom's house is the absolute best, and i was pretty bummed that our plans changed. but i was thrilled to be able to spend the day at jon's parents! since it was a little last minute i offered to do most of the cooking. my offerings:

roasted turkey breast
mashed potatoes
gravy
green bean casserole
cranberry sauce (ok, jon made that!)
pecan pie
pumpkin pie
whipped cream

i made the pies crust & all from scratch - the first time ever. have a look-see!


i had a few issues with the outer pie crust appearance, mainly b/c i had no idea what i was doing, but after it baked it tasted delicious. i used my aunt barb's crust recipe & my grammy's pecan filling recipe. i also learned that pumpkin pie tastes better when you just get pumpkin puree and add the other ingredients than the pre-mixed pie filling.

my lovely mother-in-law (mama b.) had a roast w/ carrots & potatoes, dressing, deviled eggs, veggie tray, rolls, & sweet potatoes. all in all it was delicious and i was terribly proud of myself.
