Hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving. We cooked our very first turkey and I'm happy to report it didn't totally suck. It was quite good actually! We brined the thing for a good 15 hours before and then cooked it for about 5 hours. It wasn't as hard as I thought it was going to be. But the whole giblet thing? Woaaa, didn't see that coming. I stupidly didn't take any photos of our prized bird, but did manage to capture the pretty pecan pie. Yum! My sister also made pumpkin bars - a recipe from the Magnolia Bakery cookbook. Enough said.
