Thanksgiving 2015

In absolutely zero order or sequence, here are some photos of our Thanksgiving goings-on.

Our bar area with the best mismatched cocktail glasses Good Will could provide:)
Cocktail du jour: Gin Blossoms (1 part gin, 1 part St. Germain, splash of Triple Sec, and topped off with Fresca)
Little cinnamon sugar "cookies" cut out from leftover pie crust
with heart shaped aspic cutters,
Pecan tartlets!
Our guest of honor: TOM! 
Spatchcocked and pullet-ed with pepper jelly, spicy mustard, 
Old Bay and orange slices to boot!
100% Impulse item bought when I picked up my turkey the night before: Brussels sprouts! 
I rendered out pancetta, and to that added olive oil and entirely too much garlic and tossed with dried cranberries. YUM.

Things not pictured, but also made:

Sweet potato masiyal bondas
Chorizo Trinity Stuffing
Mashed Potatoes w/gravy
String Beans
Pumpkin Bread Pudding

The day was summed up succinctly and beautifully by one of the two eight year old dinner guests: "B.E.E." BEST. EXPERIENCE. EVER.
