Thanksgiving Dinner 2012
Yes, I know it's only November 4, but we had our family Thanksgiving dinner today. Until last year we usually did this the week before Thanksgiving, but I thought it made more sense to spread it out a bit.
This year's turkey was not quite 10 pounds. I always get the smallest one I can find.
I've been doing this so many years now that it didn't even matter that we were gone all day yesterday and didn't get home until almost 8:00--I started the pies after 11:00! The only problem I ran into was rolls that weren't quite ready for the oven, so I sat them next to the oven vent. Problem solved!
Alice helped set the table.
I made these little pilgrim hat place holders from an idea I saw on Pinterest. I didn't have anything to make the bottom of the hat with, so I used ribbon above the rim instead. It worked out pretty well, but I did have to bring the ribbon down to the bottom on the back side. Do you like the ribbon Jack chose?
