Thanksgiving 2014

For the first time ever, Aaron and I didn’t travel anywhere for Thanksgiving, which means that I got to make  my first Thanksgiving meal! I was pretty thrilled to plan and prepare every dish, being the obsessive control freak that I am.

First up, the menu:
Garlic Rosemary Roast Chicken
World’s Best Dinner Rolls
Honey Butter
Roasted Garlic Mashed Potatoes
Sauteéd Asparagus
Italian Sausage Dressing
Classic Pumpkin Pie
No-bake French Silk Pie
Homemade Vanilla Ice Cream
A riff on this Cranberry Sorbet Fizz using strawberry sherbet and sparkling lemonade

We had our friend Mike come over to eat with us, and my timing for the food was almost dead-on, minus the fact that the chicken took an hour and a half longer than I thought it would.


You roast, you learn, right?

Aaron calls this pie the “Doctor Who” pie with the gigantic rip in time. I like to think the crack makes the pie look rustic, with an added bonus that people will definitely know it’s homemade.

The french silk pie had an amazing texture, and I’m imagining another go at it with an Oreo crust.

I could eat these rolls all day, e’ery day. The best. Hands down.

I’m excited to give this chicken another go when I’m not crunched for time, desperately begging the chicken to cook faster so we can finally eat!

A crazy delicious plate of goodness.

A great Thanksgiving in the books!
