Happy Turkey Day!

We just wrapped up our very first hosted Thanksgiving!
Last year we lived the dream.
And this year we had all our friends over who didn't go home for food and football and lounging. I've never tried to make the whole Thanksgiving meal before, but it was a total success! Everything was delicious!
specially brined turkey & green bean casserole
 half cornbread- half french bread dressing. Seriously the best dressing I've ever had.
 sweet potato casserole with a pecan crumble topping
our favorite canned & sliced cranberry sauce --- haven't had any "real" stuff that we liked
home-made Almond-Raspberry Linzer cookies in the cutest shapes! squirrels, turkeys, pumpkins & leaves

 pumpkin cream pie
 yum! A little bubbly to sip while cooking!
 cheese ball
goat cheese with dill and paprika
We had seven friends join us, two of which experienced their first American Thanksgiving today.

 Even Elizabeth joined us via Skype from Atlanta!

I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving!! We had a wonderful day watching the parade, the dog show, and football games on our borrowed TV from out-of-town-Elizabeth. 

Today I am most thankful for my family, my friends, and for The Pioneer Woman's Thanksgiving recipes.
