Our feast was a bounty one today! It's insane to spend so much time cooking and so little time eating but I loved doing our own big dinner this year. We had so much good food. Everything turned out spectacularly. We filled up on cheese balls early in the day- but by three we were ready to eat again! The jello salad, potato rolls, and sweet potatoes were my favorite. Laney put some weird stuff in the stuffing (just so we didn't miss mum too much) and Taylor did homemade cranberry sauce. The turkey was moist thanks to Rachael Ray and the cranberry splash drink hit the spot. I think that Zeb ate seven rolls-no turkey though. I am feeling especially stuffed still (four hours later)- but I fault the fetus for that because I don't feel like I ate as much as usual.
One of the highlights of the day was the turkey shaped butter that Laney and Taylor brought all the way from Buffalo in a cooler. I can't wait for leftovers tomorrow!!!!
