Thanksgiving Day

The day befoe Thanksgiving I spent 45 minutes ricing 10 pounds of potatoes.
Then I made the absolutely best mashed potatoes. 

I also cut up and prepared the vegetables to be roasted on Thanksgiving.  I love the color of the vegetables all mixed in together.  They look good enough to eat.  I used brussel sprouts, sweet potatoes, carrots, rutabagas, brocolli and purple onion.

This is the edible centerpiece on the main table that I did Thanksgiving morning.

Here's a view of our set up from the kitchen.

And here's the view from the living room. 
It almost looks like an institution but it was nice to have everyone eat in one area.

The pinepple turkeys were centerpieces for the two other tables.
