Thanksgiving at Our House

My co-chef

This year we celebrated Thanksgiving at our house, combining both sides of the family and maximizing our time.  I was nervous about cooking for so many people (20, to be exact), but it ended up being so low-stress!  My mother-in-law, Rebecca, made a bunch of side dishes and pies, and Andrew’s brother-in-law Nick made the turkey.  My mom contributed to the centerpieces, tablecloths, ham, and an appetizer.  I made two desserts, side dishes, a duck, and a rabbit.  Yes, we went unusual this Thanksgiving; but it all turned out pretty well!  The only negative is that I wasn’t able to get pictures of everyone seated at the table, ready for the feast.

Andrew getting the rabbit ready. Turns out, rabbit doesn't taste all that great.

Rabbit's ready to go in the oven!

Sweet potato meringue pie... it tastes better two days later.

Getting the duck ready; it turned out a little bit dry.
