What did you do for Thanksgiving?

For Thanksgiving I went to my Aunts house with my family. Most everyone was there. We had a huge turkey, beans, potatoes, ect.

I had a great thanksgiving for the past 3 years i had thanksgiving with just my family and it was great catching up with everyone.

Well, what did you guys do for Thanksgiving?

I'm glad to hear others had a good holiday. I think this was my worst Thanksgiving ever, my hubby was a grump, and I had to work. I wouldn't have minded working, if it didn't involve so much driving. Upstate NY was pummeled by snow Thursday night, I was riving through "Star Wars" type snow. A drive that normally takes me 20 min, took me about an hour.
On a happy note the food was good. I made a from scratch, fresh pumpkin cheesecake, it turned out pretty good. I'm still debating if baking and boiling down a pumpkin was better than opening up a can of pumpkin. It is definately satisfing though, know that I did all this work, and it turned out well.

I keep thinking I should try that. Someone always talks me out of it before I buy the pumpkin.

If you have a food processor go for it. I don't have one, there were some small chunks of pumpkin in my cheesecake. It just wasn't as silky smooth as I imagine it should be. I'm a stickler for doing as much by scratch as I can. For dinner I had homemade chicken fingers, a bit more time consuming then buying them from a store, but better tasting.

There's a challenge! My potatos and butternut squash are hand mashed every year, and I insist on silky smooth.

I can get my potatoes silky smooth, I couldn't for the life of me get the pumpkin silky smooth. I think it's cause pumpkin is stringy, there is a pumpkin called a sweet pumpkin, or a honey pumpkin, that I guess is suppossed to work awesome for pies, I'm gonna try it around Christmas time. I'm gonna hope I have better luck. Dont' get me wrong though the pumpkin cheesecake was awesome, I was proud at the end. I guess I'm glad i did it with a fresh pumpkin. Granted now there is nothing left of my hard work, hehehehehe.
