Turkey Day!

Happy Thanksgiving!

This year I am feeling extremely thankful for my very supportive family. I've had many ups and downs this year and we're in the thick of it now due to the holidays. My kids are just terribly adorable with hugs whenever mommy is 'sad'. My husband takes on so much so I can get extra quiet time even when I don't feel I deserve it.

But on a happier note: Let's eat! This was my dad's all time favorite holiday because we ate sooo much. He would cook it all and mom and I would make pies, pies, and more pies. And sometimes there was only the three of us yet we still made enough to feed an army. This year John has to work (it's an every other year thing, miss him but you get used to it after a while), so mom and I only made pies. Pumpkin and apple to take with us to a relatives house. Though I made a special surprise for John so he could enjoy his boring work day. Strawberry cheesecake! He said it was delicious with lots of 'mmhmm'.

To sign off I'm going to link to an Alton Brown book. We love his recipes and have been using his Turkey recipe every time it's our turn to make the turkey. We've yet to have a dry turkey no matter the brand. So, I highly recommend his cookbooks.
