Thanksgiving 2010

It was just the two of us this year, so we didn't go crazy with a bountiful meal.  We did have ourselves quite a nice spread though (don't mind me, just tootin' the ol' horn). 

 We bought an 8 lb bone-in ham (swear it was the smallest size they had).  Terry made a basting glaze out of orange juice, brown sugar, and whiskey.  It was DELICIOUS!  We are still nibbling on it, and it's 5 days later.
 For our sides, we had brown-sugar glazed carrots, horseradish mashed potatoes, and straight-from-the-campbells-recipe green bean casserole.  Terry made the gravy from a stock of turkey necks, veggies and herbs.

I accidentally made the most delicious pumpkin pie.....well two to be more precise.  I bought the larger can of Libby's Pumpkin Mix, thinking "Oh it's the same in one big as two little cans".  I started putting all of the ingredients together, and took notice to the mixing bowl steadily filling higher and higher, but I thought, Ehh...it's fine.  Then, only after I cracked in the 4 eggs, did I say, hmm...this can't be right.  I checked to see if it said serving size or quantity, but nothing.  Then, the second to last bullet in the directions says, "Fill both pie shells with filling".  Libby's, you're killing me!  So this Thanksgiving, we had two pies.....one of them still sitting whole in the fridge.  Does anyone know if it is freezeable??


The best part of this Thanksgiving though.....it snowed!!  It was only for about 15 minutes and it didn't cover the ground, but it was snowing!!!  I tried taking a picture out into the yard when it was at it's heaviest, but you couldn't see it in the picture, but at least with this one, you can see it on the top of the bird-feeder. 

We have so much to be thankful for this year;  great friends, great family, our house, our jobs, but most of all, I'm thankful for my wonderful, stubborn, loveable, grumpy, handsome other half. :-)
