Sorry it's blurry, you can see wine was involved.

The star of the show.

Do you brine your turkey? We did this year and was amazed at the difference! Your spread looks fabulous, especially the green bean casserole.

What kind of camera do you have and what lens setting do you use to get such great shots of your food?

Katherine Aucoin said...

The photos look fantastic and have me hungry again for Thanksgiving. I think we should do this every Thursday!

Alicia said...

I have the same drinking glasses as you do. They are so sturdy!

Jeff said...

I keep checking my mailbox but never got my invitation. Sure you have my address correct?

blurry pictures means a great time because you did not have time to really slow down.

Pearl said...

you are inviting me to thanksgiving dinner next year. no question about it. :)

wow! beautiful setting, too!

Kathy said...

These are great pictures. Like looking at a magazine. Looks like you had a wonderful Thanksgiving.

Peter M said...

Pam, the turkey looks magazine-grade...hope it wasn't too tiring of a day.

Marjie said...

Looks like a great day. Were all the girls home? I have never made a green bean casserole. I must be the only person in the whole world who hasn't.

The food looks delicious and the photo quality just keeps getting better and better. I really like these pics!

Miss Glu said...

J'ai trop faim !!!

Udey Johnson said...

Those aren't sweet potatoes - they're yams. Common mistake.
But they sure look good!

Lisa said...

That is one beautiful turkey! Mine didn't look as pretty but, fortunately, it tasted great. :-)

Pam said...

Terri - no, I didn't this year. I just couldn't get my act together the night before! I use a Canon Rebel XTI. I don't know what kind of lens!

Katherine - I don't know if I could do it every Thursday, I think I've all ready gained a few pounds!

Alicia - that's why I got them, something that can take a beating in the dishwasher!

Jeff - I really didn't have time to slow down!

Pearl - the more the merrier!

Kathy - thank you, we did have a good Thanksgiving.

Peter - thank you! I had time to recoup on shopping for me.

Marjie - no, only one had dinner with us. My oldest was at her in-laws and my middle had to work at the dorm.

Mike - thank you!

Miss Glu - I have no idea what you said!

Udey - I've never understood the difference.

Andrea said...

Like all your photos....looks absolutely delicious!!! Hope you and your family had a wonderful Thanksgiving. :)

Gorgeous foodstuffs!!! Makes me hungry for Thanksgiving all over again.

Tatersmama said...

OMG... Talk about nostalgia! I didn't "do" Thanksgiving dinner this year ( Aussies just don't get the point and I refuse to settle for a beer swilling debacle)but the dishes looked like mine usually look! *sob*
I think I have a spare can of french fried onions in the cupboard, so I'm going to go eat those straight out of the can... just to feel a bit better. :o)

I love seeing these pics, what a beautiful meal!

I wish I went to your house for Thanksgiving! They all look awesome!

MelanieR said...

I love the fact that you have green bean casserole as one of your thanksgiivng dishes. It is one of my family traditions as well.. we have it every special occasion and is delicious every single time!

I also love the look of those sweet potatoes, do you have the recipe?

We had Thanksgiving at my oldest daughter's house this year, and i could not bear to skip my favorite sweet potato dish with apples, so I made it the day before we made our 9 hour trip North - since your blog focusses on cooking, you might want to look at the recipe at my blog - it's delicious and healthy - enjoy, jeannette

Miss Glu said...

"Huummm j'ai trop faim !!!"
means the meal seems delicious, for a French

Jackie said...


Are the recipes for the sweet potatoes and turkey posted anywhere on your blog?

Pam said...

Jackie - if you look on the side under labels and click on turkey, it's the Giada roast turkey recipe. The sweet potatoes were just from the recipe on the back of the can.
