Holiday: Turkey Day

Jack and I are off to the slowest start on this Monday morning (which came way too soon, I might add). Yesterday, we celebrated our first-ever homemade Thanksgiving dinner (just the two of us), in our new apartment. We're heading to Mexico on Thanksgiving Day, and due to our busy schedules over the next week and a half before we leave, yesterday was the only day we had open to celebrate. We spent hours in the kitchen, sipped wine and beer while the turkey cooked and ate wayyyyy too much food (and nearly an entire pumpkin pie). Our bellies are still full, and we're still coping with sleepiness from eating too much turkey on this Monday morning.

On that note, coffee please?

Since this was our first time cooking Thanksgiving dinner, we kept the menu simple - herb-roasted turkey, garlic and parsley mashed potatoes, roasted Brussels sprouts, steamed broccoli (we're big broccoli lovers over here), herb stuffing, green bean casserole, butter croissants and homemade pumpkin pie. We topped it off with a glass (or two) of sauvignon blanc for me and a beer for Jack. Needless to say, we have at least a few days worth of leftovers on our hands (not so good when you're preparing for a week in a bikini, let me tell you...)

Regardless of my waistline, it was a relaxing, delicious day at home spent with my very best friend. What more could I ask for? (And yes, there IS pumpkin pie under that insane dollop of whipped cream below...)
