Thanksgiving '09, Round 1

That's right! Yesterday we had our first Thanksgiving lunch and it was so yummy! Just a few photos to whet your appetites. This was the first year in a very long time that I cooked a whole turkey and used the brining process. It was the best turkey I have every cooked, sorry no photo, and I will definitely do this again when I cook a whole turkey. I think you can use brining for other meats as well. I used the mix from Williams-Sonoma. I also tried a pumpkin pie recipe that used sweetened condensed milk instead of the regular evaporated milk plus sugar. The pie turned out great!

Hope your week is a good one.........

  1. Hi Rebecca,

    Your pies look yummy! I didn't do pumpkin pie this year. Just blackberry and pecan pie. Pecan pie is a favorite around here. Thank you for sending those luscious looking pecans. With the next round of holidays quickly approaching I know we will put them to good use! I gave Barb her package on Saturday. Her eyes lit up! She loves pecans too.

    Thank you again!
