I don't do a ton of cooking through the year. Since Tiffany moved in with us, she loves to cook for people, and she cooks many evenings during the week. When the big holidays come around, though, I like to take over the kitchen and have at. This year came out pretty fantastic. Chopping most of the veggies and doing the cranberry sauce the day before was a brilliant idea, and both the pies were made the day before, not by me. My MIL made a lovely custardy pumpkin pie that's not your typical back-of-the-can recipe, and my husband made a pecan pie from pecans grown on his uncle's farm. This is ridiculously long and doesn't even include recipes for either pie, the gravy, or the potatoes. So, cut tags galore!

Overall, total success. Delicious, the toddler ate a bunch, everyone *raved* about the turkey, and we have so, so many leftovers of delicious things. I don't really want to know how many pounds of butter went into that dinner.
