Thanksgiving 2012

This year I hosted Thanksgiving at my house for the first time.  I gotta say, it was pretty great.  Probably one of the best Thanksgivings ever, I'd wager.  Here are a few photos from the event.

Mum and Dad flipping the turkey so it will get crispy on all sides.
So domestic (and still in my pajamas).

The turkey finished cooking a lot faster than expected.

Turkey butter - a very important part of the holiday.

Mako is a little nervous about the crowd gathering in the kitchen.
Desserts!

The turkey was a fresh, never frozen, free range turkey from Weaver's Orchard.  It was super delicious - it tasted different than our usual frozen grocery store turkeys in a was I can't really describe.  And I made some amazing stock from the remains.  I'm so glad that the kitchen was (mostly) finished for this - it makes such a difference!
