Happy Belated Thanksgiving!

Life has been a little hectic in this blogger's household this past week. But I thought it would be foolish to let Thanksgiving pass without giving it a word or two. We hosted Thanksgiving for 11 in a one bedroom apartment. Yikes! All went according to plan, and besides a few stressful moments, everything was great! My dad was recently told he needed to watch his blood sugar levels, so I tried a few new sides that were lower in carbohydrates. The only dish that I wasn't thrilled with was the stuffing. Disappointing, but there were so many other yummy things it wasn't such a big deal. Plus, it got better with a little time, and it makes a good leftover snack.

I wanted to share with you our meal and give credit to those blogs that I borrowed recipes from. I hope everyone had a great holiday!!!

Cheese and Crackers
Sweet and Spicy Rosemary Nuts (Food Blogga) YUM!

Turkey (Meadow Run Farm, courtesy of Food for All Market)
Irish Mashed Potatoes
Mashed Sweet Potatoes
Stuffing (Cornbread, sausage, apple, walnut)
Honey Roasted Carrots (I blogged about this recipe here)
Brussels Sprouts with Bacon and Figs (Mark Bittman)
Cranberry Sauce (Simply Recipes - I added orange zest)

Pumpkin Pie
Twofer Pumpkin Pecan Pie (Dorry Greenspan, blogged by Food Blogga)
Blueberry Pie
Apple Pie

Too much food to think about, but we're working our way through the leftovers! How are you using up your leftovers? Holiday sandwiches? Turkey Soup?

I don't know, I kind of liked the stuffing. Everything was very yummy especially the sweet potato puffs for breakfast Friday morning.
