Many thanks to the ever-loving Max, Alex and Edna for the blood, sweat and tears; shout-out to Effing Brobro the Elder for stepping up as primary prep and all-round sous chef extraordinaire; thanks too to all the peeps from near and far whose contributions and sparkling company made this a memorable feast, even months later.
Alton Brown's never-fail Brined Turkey, as done and tweaked by Max.
Frankenstuffing (dos pans!)
Paula Deen's Corn Pudding, plus Scallions, Red Pepper and Curry; wicked easy, and as with all things Paula Deen, irrationally satisfying and cranny-filling.
5 lbs. of Garlic Mash (half pictured here).
Not pictured: Sweet Potatoes with Pecans (Joanna), Cream Biscuits (Edna), Artichoke Dip (Max and Edna), Two-Pesto Terrine (Max and Edna), Cauliflower and Broccoli Gratin (moi), Cream Gravy (moi).
Lap-perched caloric load...huzzah!
Pumpkin pie a la Max, and Pumpkin Cheesecake, 2 ways, a la Joanna; hand whipped cream by Edna.
Thank you too, gentle readers, for your patience and loyalty, in this the 3rd year of the blog! The posts are slow but the appetite runs high, and without you, I'm just flotsam in the tide of gluttonous, sanctimonious know-it-all morons. *MUAH!*
