A Thanksgiving Feast!

Thanksgiving was truly a feast.  This year, we had a record number of people for Thanksgiving - 8.  I don't remember a holiday where there were so few people, but as we get older and we start to celebrate with our own families, it seems the numbers get smaller and smaller.

The menu this Thanksgiving:

(Everything here except the olives were homemade.  The pickled peppers and the marinated vegetables were all prepared one to two days prior....Super easy!!)

Prosciutto, Mortadella, Capicola, Salami, Prusitini, Slice Provolone, Chunk Provolone, Pickled Peppers, Giardenere, Fresh Itri Olives, Marinated Mushrooms, Marinated Artichoke Hearts, Sweet Gerkin Pickles, Fresh baked Italian Bread

Main Meal:

Turkey stuffed with stuffing ,
Corn Bread stuffing (on the side), Home-made Gravy, Mashed Potatoes, Broccoli Casserole, Creamed Onions (my absolute favorite), Butternut Squash, Sweet Potato, Turnip (yuck!), Cranberry sauce

Pumpkin Pie, Apple Pie, Pecan Pie, Lemon Squares, fresh whipped cream, ice cream

I made a pecan pie and a pumpkin pie this year:

Nonni made a pumpkin pie....But taste tested it before she brought it over...

All in all, a delicious meal (with way too much food!)!!!
