I went to not one, but two! Thanksgiving potlucks this year. The first was hosted this past Sunday at the house of NK, LT, and JP. NK made a kick-ass turkey and I showed up with two cranberry sauces. There was also creamy mashed potatoes, sweet potatoes with marshmallows, stuffing, brisket, pasta, apple crumble, roasted beets with goat cheese, pumpkin pie, and much more. It was all delicious and we digested by playing Trivial Pursuit: Genus Edition.
Then, on Thanksgiving Day, I headed over to LF, CN, and CM’s house, the same hosts of last year’s memorable PJ Thanksgiving party (along with SD). As was the case last year, we had WAY too much food, even though there was only one turkey on the table this year. I’ll just let the photos speak for themselves. Everyone outdid themselves and I’m definitely going to get the recipes for several of the dishes — especially SD’s sweet potato mash and CM’s green bean and mushroom casserole. Yum.
Oh, and in case any of you were curious, the remaining two cranberry sauces were well received. People seemed surprised by the pickled beet sauce — perhaps because they were initially biased against it, but then it actually went well with the turkey? Well, I think that although all 4 sauces were delicious, my personal favorite was the classic version with orange zest. What can I say? I guess I’m just an old-fashioned kind of girl.
Hope everyone had as delicious a Thanksgiving as I did!
