Bounty

Abby and I thought that we were going to have a smaller group over for Thanksgiving this year, but we ended up with twelve people, and, let's see if I can count, 16 giant plates or bowls of food and several bottles of wine.
So, here are the dishes that I can remember: 1 free range organic turkey from Savenors, two kinds of mashed potatoes (with lots of cheese and cream and without lots of cheese and cream), two kinds of cranberry sauce (rosemary-cabernet and bourbon-orange), two kinds of stuffing (oyster and vegetarian), two kinds of sweet potato dishes (whipped and in a gratin with squash), braised greens, celery root salad, roasted carrots with dill, roasted Brussels sprouts with balsamic vinegar, spicy green beans, turkey gravy, and vegetarian gravy.Everyone brought at least one dish or wine, but Maia went the extra mile, bringing roasted Brussels sprouts
Two kinds of mashed potatoes and an awesome cheesecake.It might be a bit gratuitous, but here's another shot of our bountiful table. Everything was outstanding
And here are the desserts. Pumpkin pie, apple cake (two types), and cheesecake.

Great stuff, have to try it. I found using the Pasta n' More saves me so much time in the kitchen. I found it at www.harrietcarter.com
