I bought a 29lb. turkey from Frys and started cooking that sucker about a week in advance. (Actually it only took about 6 hours but that bird was HUGE. I will post the recipe for that soon)
Yes, that turkey is dominating my cookie sheet.
I had to buy a new XL roasting pan
I also tried two recipes from Our Best Bites, their Turkey Cupcakes and their Candied Coconut Sweet Potatoes. The sweet potatoes turned out to be SO good and how cute are these cupcakes?!?!?
We had so much food, I mean look at this FEAST!
So many friends helped out, I hope I don't miss anyone...
Brad brought a great green bean casserole
Nord brought rolls
Jessica brought herb rolls
Adrianne brought dessert for everyone (two desserts and homemade whipped cream, are you kidding me?!)
Garett brought wine, pie, and an extra table and chairs
Steve brought a caprese salad for everyone to snack on while we finished turkey
Ruben brought his awesome stuffing and carved the turkey
Teresa brought mashed potatoes and made the gravy for me (thank you!)
The Duncans, Ben, Spencer, Sam and I am sure other people brought booze to share (a much needed treat)
And a HUGE thank you to Jessica, Britney and Sam who cleaned my kitchen after, you are BRAVE women
Here are some more pictures from the night:
The night was so much fun and I was so impressed by how much our friends pitch in, including Jeremy emptying the garbage before it toppled over. It was great just hanging out and enjoying a wonderful dinner all together. Thanks again and we will continue the tradition next year!
