Today, we gather with our family and friends to celebrate and count our blessings.
The celebration involves food!
A traditional Turkey - a 24 pounder!
Dressing. Two types this year - corn bread and bread (crouton).
Crouton stuffing shown below.
Sweet Potatoes with a mini-marshmallow topping.
A refrigerated/layered salad.
The rest of the plate: Starting at the top going clockwise
Collard greens, dressing, Waldorf salad, glazed carrots, layered salad, turkey, mashed potatoes, buttered dinner roll and sweet potatoes (in the center.)
Dessert: pecan pie and pumpkin pie.
The pecan pie was tasty, but the golden syrup didn't stand out. The problem with some recipes is there is a layer of sweet "custard" with only a single layer of pecans floating on top. This pie was chock full of nuts which makes it stand out.
