Thanksgiving table, before.

This is the basting liquid for the turkey. Three sticks of butter & a bottle of white wine. Every 30 minutes.

Hello stuffing made from cornbread (stale, baked 3 days earlier & left on the counter to harden up), sausage with sage, eggs, butter, onion & celery.

P1020588
Green bean action shot PLUS carrots sauteed in butter & brown sugar & finished off with some heavy cream. My mother in law made the sweet potatoes. I can't say for certain what was in them, but I know the topping alone had an entire stick of butter melted into it.

Josh makes a mean-ass turkey.

P1020587
Every year I make my homemade cranberries with orange juice & zest. And every year my dad insists on cranberries from a can (with ridges, please).

Here are my dad & stepmom being cute.

P1020598
Dash with Josh's folks. I am all about Grandpa John's haircut.
