So Glad that Is OVER

Well Thanksgiving has come and gone. There were some wins, and some loses. We had a pretty good menu we ate about an hour and a half later than I had planned but honestly all the food came out great. Desserts... that is another story.
Here is what we had (since we forgot to take pictures).
Turkey (and NO Mom, I didn't have to cook it all day)
Ribeye roast
Corn bread dressing
Creamy garlic & Chive mashed potatoes w/cheese
zesty green beans
Smokey sweet potato souffle
Pomegranate glazed carrots
Pumpkin cheesecake
and Red velvet cake
My Drama.... I needed cream cheese and mascarpone for the frosting and I thought it said either or. Every store around us was out and stupid me decided to just use creme fraiche... bad idea. It had a weird tang to it. I should have just used more cream cheese and left it at that. The mascarpone has a very lovely sweet taste I love and I could not remember what creme fraiche tasted like, it's been a few years since I've used it. Boo hoo.

But everything was still good. My nephews came over and plus my Mom and her husband were here. Everyone enjoyed everything and especially enjoyed Sabrina's antics. She was the life of the party, we all laughed so much. I don't want to cook another big meal again for a few months. I am still exhausted.
