2014 Thanksgiving In Phoenix with "Pop"

This year we did Thanksgiving on the day before since Ian had to work on Thanksgiving and we got to enjoy it with Harry this year here in sunny Phoenix!

Here is what I made for the big meal, which I started preparing for a few days before.
For the Turkey I made a whole roasted turkey using Ina's Roast Turkey and Turkey Gravy with Onions and Sage from November 2014 Food Network Magazine.

Classic Cranberry Sauce from the November 2014 Food Network Magazine booklet insert.
Easy Duchess Potatoes from Whole Foods Market recipe card.
Cornbread-Bacon Stuffing from November 2014 Food Network Magazine made with Jalapeno-Bacon Skillet Cornbread and Potato Rolls that are Food Network Recipes as well, which I made the day before.

The Potato Rolls were Wesley's favorite, that is all he wanted to eat and could probably have eaten most of them if I let him!

Ranch Salad with Pecans from Food Network November 2014 Magazine again. Sorry for the blurry picture, I was in a rush to eat it :-)  Wesley dives in and helps himself after waiting all day watching me cook...... finally can eat Thanksgiving now!
Green Bean Mushroom Casserole and Brussels Sprouts with Balsamic Honey from Food Network Magazine November 2014.

Now for Dessert!  Apple Brown-Butter Tart and Upside-Down Pear Cranberry Tart both recipes from Food Network's website.  Both Delicious and served with homemade ice cream that I put the extra Brown-Butter filling in, from the Apple Tart, to sweeten and flavor along with maple syrup and vanilla, so good! Yes there is also store bought vanilla ice cream too in the picture, that was before I bought my $6 Cuisinart Ice Cream maker from Goodwill:-)  "Pop" liked my ice cream better.
