For Thanksgiving this year, our first as a married couple, we went to Ryan's dad's house for the day (part of our master plan for the holidays, which we figured out months in advance). It is always slow-paced and relaxing there and we enjoyed a wonderful day of cooking, eating and being with family.
Ryan made his first turkey ever and it was awesome! He put a brine on it the night before and it was oh so moist and flavorful.
You'll have to excuse the fact that we already dug into it once this picture was taken.
I also made a praline pumpkin pie that was pretty good too. You cover the top of the pie with pralines right before serving, so sadly, they aren't in the picture. But we just finished up the leftovers last night and I must say it's pretty good!
