had enough?

Apparently, I haven't. I can peruse Thanksgiving post after Thanksgiving post after after-Thanksgiving post and not get tired of seeing your turkeys, cranberry sauces, and pies. What's more, I can eat our own leftovers for meal after meal after meal and still crave 'em the next day.


So, without further ado, here's (part of) our spread:


turkey--still good four days later


dressing--we don't call it stuffing unless it was actually inside the bird at some point


sauce of the cranberries


eggs of the devil


sweet potater casserole


cole slaw--the version that I've yet to match


the 4-pound box o' chocolates that we worked on all weekend...

Thank you, Thanksgiving!

4 pounds of chocolates? That's all I would need for Thanksgiving dinner. Period.

kat said...

That is one heck of a box of chocolate!

Peter M said...

LOL, sweet potater casseroles sounds like a good side to the toikey!

Theresa said...

I'm glad you have the box of chocolates, instead of me!! Hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving. I'm still working on my leftovers.

Marjie said...

So, I'm a dope, but what's the pretty yellow and white square at the top? I should have thought of the box o' chocolates!

Lori said...

that cole salw looks so yummy. Ive never had that on Thanksgiving.

Pam said...

Everything looks so good that it's making me very hungy. The cole slaw looks especially tasty.

Deborah said...

I went on vacation the day after Thanksgiving, so I didn't take home any leftovers. So I think I will be making another Thanksgiving dinner sometime soon!

Suzanne said...

cole slaw at thanksgiving?! I should have come to your place!

Indigo said...

Er, need help with those chocolates?

I'm so jealous of Thanksgiving, haha. Maybe it's just as well we don't have it in England; I'd end up eating solidly throughout November AND December, rather than just the latter...

Ingrid said...

Glad you had a tasty Thanksgiving!

I can't stop craving the pies!!!

Heather said...

you cracked me up with the eggs of the devil! we never have them on thanksgiving, but i love them, so i'm adding them to the list of stuff for next year. and that 4lb box of chocolates looks mighty inviting, too :)

Maria said...

It all looks good. I wish I could of helped out on the chocolates:)

Krysta said...

cole slaw sounds pretty good right about now!

Sandie said...

I agree---I never tire of seeing or eating Thanksgiving food, or of reading about it!

Now, if I just had a box of chocolates to nibble on while I peruse...

I skipped Thanksgiving this year, and your photos have me craving the food. I really want one of those eggs of the devil!

Lorraine E said...

Great range of food and I love seeing what everyone eats for it as we don't celebrate it here. Vicarious eating if you will!

Jessica@Foodmayhem said...

Any post that starts with a block of cheese wins me over.

Rachael said...

I was tired of leftovers until I saw yours....they look so good! I completely forgot the sweet taters this year and I am still sad about it! I guess I can make them for Christmas ;-)

Lucy said...

Grace, everything looks sooooo good!! But I must say the "sweet potato casserole" has my full attention.... please share ;-)

Bunny said...

It all looks so darn good Grace!!I love stuffing, I made it with potato bread this year and it turned out fantastic.

Dee Light said...

Yummmmmm, dressing is my favorite part!! I'll be fixing it all again this weekend for my father-in-law.

Lisa said...

Looks yummy! I really enjoyed all of our leftovers. Now that they are almost gone ...pass the chocolate, please! :-)

Joie de vivre said...

Your dressing looks yummy! You all did do justice to that box of chocolates too!

Robin Sue said...

Doggone it I forgot to make the deviled eggs. I knew I missed something! Well we had enough with out them, maybe for Christmas then. Happy December Grace!

Laura said...

I am not a fan of traditional Thanksgiving--my loss I know. But I will take the chocolates any old day. And your cranberry sauce--the one thing I do like--looks awesome. I could slather it on some pork chops. :)

noble pig said...

Oh yeah, I'm the same way, just had another turkey sandwich for breakfast today! Yippee!

Sharon said...

I went through a momentary lapse where I had eaten so much food throughout the weekend that the thought of food disgusted me. Thankfully, that dreadful phase has passed and I'm back in Thanksgiving mode!

Rachel said...

I would be glad to finish the gorgeous food shown...

Albany Jane said...

Oh - DUDE! I'm glad I'm not the only one. We polished off our leftover/doggy bag really quickly. I actually bought a turkey before and we're thawing it as we speak. Some people might just be coming out of a turkey coma, but I love the stuff! (I wish it were as widely available all year round. Yum!)

OhioMom said...

The pics are wonderful, gonna share that slaw recipe ?

Rosie said...

If you need any help eatting up the left-overs just call me ;)

I wish we had Thanksgiving here in England....

Leslie said...

FOUR pound box of chocolates?? MOVE OVER TURKEY!

giz said...

Apparently I'm not tired of Thanksgiving yet either and our was in October - I look at these delicious looking recipes and am creating the menu for the next holiday. I think it's called Chocolate Day. no?

Mike of Mike's Table said...

I'm with you--I'm happy to keep peeking in on everyone's Thanksgiving spreads out of hungry curiosity. Looks like you ate very well!

Sophie said...

Yum yum! I felt bad when I saw the coleslaw because I forgot that I promised the hubby I'd make him some this year! Yours looks tasty-do you have the recipe for it? I've never made it before! :P

MaryBeth said...

I am very much like you Grace, I could eat Turkey day leftovers over and over again and never get tired of it. Now for the 4 pounds of candy..I could eat at least 3 pounds by myself.

Pam said...

Okay, I need to start the four pound box of chocolate tradition. How did I miss that one??

Emily said...

That sweet potato casserole looks divine!
Looks like you had a good one.

Sarah said...

I burst out laughing when I saw the massive box of chocolate! You guys do Thanksgiving right :)

Vera said...

It looks like you had a real feast, Grace! And just the right amount of chocolate for dessert :)

nicisme said...

What a great spread, you know how to celebrate!

Jeanne said...

Huevos del diablo!! You crack me up, yet again... Quite a spread - hope you had a wonderful day :)

Jaime said...
