My Thanksgiving post is basically a week late, I’m bad! My only excuse is that I am super busy. Plus, of course, I was starving by the time we ate so the pictures suck because I was in such a rush. Other than that, enjoy!
The first thing I made that day was Chocolate Bourbon Pecan Pie. It was hard not to dig in to it until after dinner!
My plate! It includes all of the above plus turkey and mashed potatoes. I wish I had taken a picture of the whole turkey, doh. We roasted a turkey this year (last 2 years we fried). The turkey was good, but nothing is as good as fried. I think the fried turkey ruined me for life. I wasn’t too full after I ate this, but I was saving room for pie! Oh… there was a salad too, but I didn’t eat it, hehe.
A couple hours after dinner, I cut myself a big slice of pie. It was hands down the best pecan pie I have ever made. It had the perfect amount of chocolate, and the bourbon gave it just a slight kick.
It was a delicious Thanksgiving! Here are all the recipes we used. What was your favorite part of your Thanksgiving meal? Mine was the Pecan Pie and the Sweet Potatoes…and the Stuffing
