Thanksgiving Menu

Thanksgiving is one of our favorite holidays. Definitely Denis's! So we had a ton of food planned. Some food definitely came out better than others though, note to self for next year. Our Turkey was delish after being in a brine for over 12 hours, it was very juicy and moist. My pumpkin pie on the other hand needs some work; crust was good, pie not so much, next year I am going to stick with a traditional pie recipe instead of being fancy. I also tried dinner rolls they weren't very successful either, but I plan on trying them again shortly. Everything else came out pretty tasty. Since we only have one oven I was able to prep a lot the day before and everyone brought something from home as well. It was all very yummy. We made the Turkey, Sweet Potato Casserole, Mashed Potatoes, Cornbread, and Butternut Squash soup. Below is the menu, recipes will follow later:
