Thanksgiving Wrap Up

Thanksgiving went just how I had pictured it.  All the pre planning and cooking ahead worked out for the best and made the actual day easy and relaxing.
My family arrived around 12:30 and we had plans to eat at 2:00.  At 2:15 we actually sat down to the table.  The timing all came together at the last few minutes.  All the new recipes I tried tasted great and are going to be keepers.
Below are the links for them all.  I did make my own potatoes and will post about those later.  I also made my own gravy for the first time.  It was so good and so worth the extra time.
I really liked the table setting too.  I made my own table runners with burlap.
I am working on a new one for Christmas.
It was nice to share a special day with my family and to enjoy a nice dinner with every one.  We don't get together as often as we'd like so I really wanted to make the day special.

Check out the recipes below.  Hope you all had a great Thanksgiving!
