Total fail on the pics!

I would just like to apologize now for my failure in the area of the pics for Thanksgiving!  LOL!

Everything came together so fast and at such the last minute, I totally lost my mind.  We were supposed to have an early dinner at my mother’s house at 4:00.  Fine, no problem.  I did my gravy base on Wednesday night, and got up and started cooking Thursday morning.  The turkey went into the oven on time (a huge accomplishment for me!).  Spiced Pecans…….check!  Fried onions for the green bean casserole……check!

At this point, I am completely confident that I will get everything done and have plenty of time for pics before heading out to my mother’s house.  (They live three houses away! LOL!)

Onward!!  Chocolate pies…….check!  (They looked great and tasted ok, but were not what I was hoping for.)

OK, into the crunch………Garlic Mashed Potatoes are taking longer than expected to cook (even though I julianned them).  Green Bean Casseroles are together and waiting to go into the oven as soon as the turkey comes out.

Turkey is out of the oven and we have gotten it onto a platter so that I can start on the gravy.  That is a lot of liquid in that pan……how am I ever going to get this to reduce down like the recipe says??  Oh!  I forgot to put the green beans in the oven and the potatoes decide they are ready now?  Rush, Rush, Rush!!

Needless to say, it all got done and we made it to my mother’s, but we were about 30 minutes late.  LOL!

Hope your Thanksgiving was as interesting and memorable as ours!!
