Thanksgiving prep started early at our house this year. We made toasted pecans, brined our turkey, and prepped our homemade pumpkin ice cream.
The night before Thanksgiving I made a pumpkin pie, and had enough dough left over for another shell, so I made a quiche for breakfast the next morning. It was dang good!
I also made some cranberry feta pinwheels for a snack...
I set the little monsters to work cracking some mac nuts for the greenbeans. As usual, they ate twice as many as they cracked for me.
We made cranberry sauce from fresh cranberries. YUM
sweet potatoes with marshmallows and strusel
Our citrus guava brined turkey.
toasted mac nut green beans from this recipe that I saw in Coastal Living.
The kids had matching jammies. They weren't too happy about having to sit still for a picture though.
Daniel did an awesome job of carving the turkey this year.
Tablescape without the food.
