Thanksgiving 2010

Got some turkey, baked macaroni & cheese, green bean casserole, mashed potatoes & gravy, sweet potatoes, glazed carrots, cranberry sauce, salad, bread, pumpkin pie and pecan pie.

First time making a turkey... Not the most exciting thing to cook.

I enjoyed making my own crust instead of buying one :)

Turned out perfect!

Pecan Pie... I've been waiting for this baby over a year!

"It has been an unchallengeable American doctrine that cranberry sauce, a pink goo with overtones of sugared tomatoes, is a delectable necessity of the Thanksgiving board and that turkey is uneatable without it. ~Alistair Cooke"

"Thanksgiving is America's national chow-down feast, the one occasion each year when gluttony becomes a patriotic duty. ~Michael Dresser"

"The funny thing about Thanksgiving, or any huge meal, is that you spend 12 hours shopping for it and then chopping and cooking and braising and blanching. Then it takes 20 minutes to eat it and everybody sort of sits around in a food coma, and then it takes four hours to clean it up. ~Ted Allen"

"I love Thanksgiving turkey. It's the only time in Los Angeles that you see natural breasts. ~Arnold Schwarzenegger"

Happy Thanksgiving, Friends :)
