Thanksgiving 08

We had a nice quiet Thanksgiving Day. ...a calm and quiet meal with just 4 of us--Bourbon Turkey breast(a Southern living recipe see my recipe blog for the recipe, toasted almond green beans, caramelized parsnips and carrots, corn, peas, sweet potato, mashed potato, cornbread cranberry/apple dressing, regular dressing, Bourbon gravy and regular gravy, 2 kinds of cranberries, rosemary rolls, apple pie and pecan pumpkin pie. Very satisfying ;-). Just a quiet relaxing day.
Gram was in pain so we did not visit very long with her. Yesterday was a better day for her. She still managed to crack a joke making a rhyme with Skipper's name.
Thankful just for the small things of a blessed day.


  1. Wow! You cooked a feast! It sounds like you had a lovely Thanksgiving!

  2. The menu sounds wonderful - and the relaxation too!

    We had only 11 at the table, compared to many more other years - that seemed relaxing to me!

    Now I MUST get in the mood to get some shopping and decorating done!

  3. I'm glad you had a great Thanksgiving. I see you already have your tree up. I still have cleaning to do from Thanksgiving.

    I hope you have a great week!

  4. What a special, relaxing time for you. MMM, bourbon turkey breast. I just saw Paul Dean do a bourbon, pecan, molasses type sauce for a turkey. It looked so good. Yep, pure southern. Sounds like you had a ton of food.
