food coma

 Tommy's twice baked potatoes.  ohmygod.

I was oncall the night before Thanksgiving and was up allllllllllllllllllllllllllll night - stumbled in around 4am-ish.  My husband let me sleep as long as I wanted on Thanksgiving Day and he did all the cooking.  He made us a mini feast...everything from scratch...everything delicious.  Since it's only the two of us, we have loads of left-overs...we will be in food comas for the next few days.

Lil magnificent pumpkin pie idea: we made our pumpkin pie this year - it was the first time either of us ever made a pumpkin pie  (I helped!)  Tommy suggested we sprinkle the top of the pie with chopped honey roasted pecans.  I tend to be a pumpkin pie purest, but decided to go with his fun idea...and it ROCKED.  We just sprinkled them on with 15 minutes left of baking time and it was a glorious addition.

 Tommy's famous mac 'n cheese

 Our cute lil turkey with a orange cranberry glaze Tommy whipped up.  delish.

I grew up eating the cranberry sauce out of the can (and I love it!) but Tommy makes it from real cranberries...and it's way better :-)

Can you tell I'm wicked thankful for my husband?
