First off, I hope every one had a wonderful Thanksgiving with their family and friends. The next few photos capture all the cooking we did and our Thanksgiving celebration.
I always make my pumpkin pies the evening before, I'm not sure why,but I kinda find it relaxing to make pies in the evening. I used my new Williams Sonoma cutters to make these lovely oak leaves for the crust. I use to free hand them in the past,but this is so much better,and it was loads of fun to do!
Ready for the oven
Caitlin decided to make a chocolate pumpkin pie out of the November issue of Martha Stewart magazing....here she is building her pie.
I think I could just eat this alone. After she got her pie in the oven,we stayed up until it cooled,and headed off to bed.
Time to make the stuffing
Mix and stir...

David makes the cranberry sauce every year, doesn't this look tart and tasty?!
A new green bean dish I tried, shallots and slivered almonds.
Turkey is all done!!
Ready to eat....Pierre is hiding off to the side....

Mom gets to sit down and finally eat.
You can't just have one slice of pie can you? I don't think so!!!
