The Finale: What Thanksgiving Looked Like (Before The Fam Demolished It)

Happy Black Friday!! I spent the whole of Thanksgiving wishing people Thanksgiving, blogging but primarily cooking!! And after dinner was over.... I fell into what some would refer to as an ethnic food coma? I'll spare you the real terminology, but I know a lot of you understand! But I did take pictures before we dove in! I didn't blog on the progress of all of the other dishes, but I'm sure to have a dinner party or something else soon where I'll start showing you how I make my other dishes too so don't fret! Enjoy the photos of last nights dinner!

The turkey and side dishes! I'll zoom in on the sides in a bit!
