Thanksgiving Turkey

by - 7:26 AM

Day 327. Thanksgiving is one of my favorite holidays. My extended family is quite enthusiatic about food, and we typically go a little crazy cooking for Thanksgiving. This year was particularly extravagant: for a dinner with 23 people (4 of whom were under 5), we had 26 different dishes, including 4 pies, 3 other desserts, 9 vegetable sides, 3 kinds of stuffing (plus savory bread pudding), 2 salads, 2 kinds of cranberry sauce, turkey, and gravy.

It was amazing. Despite this abundance, the turkey is undoubtedly the start of the show at Thanksgiving, and so is my picture for the day. This turkey in particular, from Hettie Belle Farm in Western Mass and cooked by my dad, was incredible. A few pictures of sides and desserts are in the comments.
