Coming out of our Thanksgiving Fog

Nothing says classy like a throw-away aluminum roasting pan!

I think my head is finally clearing from all of the tripofan and I can get back to doing what I do best (hahha), blogging. Ok, well posting recipes and Etsy picks perhaps?

I hope everyone had a fantastic Thanksgiving dinner on Thursday. This was the first Thanksgiving dinner AND turkey that I have ever attempted so waking up Wednesday night/Thursday morning after a particular disturbing dream about how Martha would do Thanksgiving was not entirely out of the ordinary.

It was all to waste because everything came out great. I did this cider-brined and glazed turkey (while I was impressed with how tender the meat was, I couldn't detect how the cider changed the flavoring at all), mashed potatoes made with butter and cream cheese (I made these a couple days ahead and then heated them up in the oven with more butter on top mmm,
gravy from the turkey recipe, this awesome sausage and parmesan cheese stuffing (I made it with all hot italian sausage but next time will do half mild and half hot as a couple of people complained it was too hot. This was another dish I prepped ahead of time and then heated up before dinner), some green salad thing, roasted green beans, and carrot cake with cream cheese frosting.

Now I'm enjoying lots of turkey sandwiches, which is really my favorite part of the holidays!
