T-day for Two

This year's meal has proved the best the LundeRoys have ever made and we did partially homemade, partially store-bought. Here are the details.

The overall spread (somehow still had gravy boat and hadn't sent it to storage):

Thanksgiving Table

The turkey that we almost didn't have:

Smoked Turkey

Green beans with lemon hazelnut butter (zester and grater still in storage, Austin made the zest with a knife):

Green Beans with Hazlenut Lemon Butter

Mashed potatoes (masher in storage, had to go to a few stores to find one on Thanksgiving), best ever because they included butter, cream cheese, sour cream, ranch dressing mix, and sharp cheddar. Very healthy.

Creamy Mashed Potatoes

Stuffing was Stove Top, we've never been able to make anything better than this mushy goodness:

Thanksgiving Dinner

Cranberries from a can just like Gramma always had:


Not pictured include the gravy (jarred) and the pumpkin pie (shoulda made our own, store bought was just so-so). We had Beaujolais Nouveau with dinner and Sauvignon Blanc after. It was really tasty and we basically spent the entire meal groaning with satisfaction or saying "these are the best potatoes ever!"
