Thanks!

I had a really nice Thanksgiving, visiting my brother and sister-in-law. And when we had to eat and run because we were trying to beat a baby (and mommy) meltdown, I think all the parents present understood and weren't insulted. The food was scrumptious. In case Mary doesn't document it herself, we had:

Smoked Turkey
Sour Cream and Chive Mashed Potatoes
50's-Style Baked Sweet Potatoes (w/marshmallow on top!)
Creamy Brussels Sprouts
Stuffing
Chunky Cranberry Sauce
Gravy
Bread + Butter
Pumpkin Pie
French Silk Pie

My favorite dish was, surprisingly, the sweet potatoes. I'd never eaten the marshmallow kind, but these were absolutely To. Die. For. Everything was great, but that dish was quite stupendous. Mary kept hinting about how much butter was in them. I didn't push her to reveal the cold, hard facts. It's the holidays!

Thanks for coming over! Hope Alex recovered. I know how he feels -- today I took a four hour nap.
