I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving! Mine was great! No one refused to come up to the table or threw a fit. No one was high on heroin and we weren't at a Sizzler in Los Angeles. It was just lovely. Here's my sister, waiting for the big day at the already set table.
I'm going to post as many of these recipes as I can stand eventually, but for now, I'll show you some pictures and let you in on my final menu. Please note - everything on this menu was made from scratch. Because I'm crazy that way.

Zack said this was an insane amount of food. I think he was just jealous not to be there. Doesn't everyone look happy?
Here's my plate, filled up with a little bit of everything. Let the holiday season begin!
