I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving. Brendan and I played host to our friends. We ended up cooking for about 12 people. Both of us were pretty ambitious in our culinary endeavors.

I did everything from scratch: rolls, sweet potato puree, baked macaroni & cheese, apple pie (from my mom's recipe, though I did buy the crust. for some reason, her recipe doesn't like California…think it's the lack of humidity), carrot cake w/ cream cheese frosting and pumpkin cheesecake with ginger snap crust. My only failure was the caramel sauce for the cheesecake.

Brendan was even more ambitious. He attempted (successfully, I might add) a turducken which is a chicken inside a duck inside a turkey with a layer of stuff between each protein (and he did 3 different stuffings as well). He also made a backup turkey as well (in case it wasn't a success).

If anyone wants to see pictures, we have more here
