We hope you all ate as much as we did during Thanksgiving. This was our second year celebrating Thanksgiving with our family - my side and his side.
Luckily this year, it wasn't back to back in the same day like last year. This year we did my family's Thanksgiving on Thursday and his family's on Friday.
We didn't have time to record or write our recipes, but we did have time to take a lot of pictures.
The turkey was delicious!!! It was my second time having turkey from Will's dad's restaurant. It was moist and full of deliciousness!
I'm not sure if it's suppose to taste very sweet, but in my opinion it was a little too sweet for me. My sister's fiance brought strudel from Zabar's (one of my favorite desserts) and it was tasty and delish!
I baked strawberry, blueberry, and cherry cookies. I finally baked them just right. Mom told me to always add enough flour and I did. Everyone loved them!
We sure made a lot of food. Everyone kind of brought their own food or helped in some way or another.
I've been trying to learn how to make cranberry sauce from scratch and I finally did, but I don't think this was the best. I think I could have done better. I added brown sugar, orange juice, cinnamon, and fresh cranberries. It wasn't too sweet, but a little tart for sure.

Overall, our Thanksgiving dinner was a delight. Good times, good food, and good laughs. How was your Thanksgiving?
