T Stands for Turkey With All the Fixings

Hi everyone. Another Tuesday has arrived and November is quickly winding down. Time to share our drink related posts over at Bleubeard and Elizabeth's blog. It is T Day again!
 So I hope everyone who celebrates  had a wonderful  Thanksgiving. (And everyone else had a good day also.) I had a nice  quiet Thanksgiving at home, just the hubby and myself. My husband found it a little too quiet, but I really enjoyed the no pressure holiday.
I still made a nice meal for us. I started with my favorite part, the baking.
Since there was only 2 of us, I decided to make  little mini apple pies in a muffin tin.


And I bought a little 9 pound turkey and roasted it.
So along with the turkey, I made the standard dinner accompaniments: mashed potatoes, stuffing.  squash, green beans, gravy and we had a really nice meal.
And for my drink I enjoyed a couple of glasses of wine. I had bought this bottle last summer when we went to the Finger Lakes in New York State and went to a wine tasting.  I didn't remember what a nice wine it was.
Of course typical of Thanksgiving there was still too much food. In fact all weekend I seemed to eat. :) Now it is time to get back to healthy habits. At least for a little while until all the next round holiday food makes an appearance. :)
I will say though looking at my Thanksgiving dinner photo it is making me want another one of those meals.
Happy T Day ladies.

Your Thanksgiving meal looks delicious Erika.
I know what you say about too much food, its like that with us for the Christmas Dinner, the turkey lasts for days afterwards, but nothing gets wasted, even the bones make a good soup base.

Happy T day wishes.

Oh that looks like a lovely meal! It looks a bit like the way my hubby (British) cooks the Christmas meal: Turkey, stuffing, potatoes and veg plus cranberry sauce. We have roast potatoes in stead of mash. Great that the wine was so nice. It is always a lovely surprise when it tastes better than you remembered.
Your little mini pies look scrumptious too. Thank you for sharing your meal (and wine)
Happy T-Day,
Hugs,
Lisca

Most of our holidays are quiet and not pressure, just the 4 of us. Your dinner turned out well. Our turkey was little, too, at 11 lbs. I never even thought about baking the pies in muffin pans. That's a great idea.

Your mini-pies are so cute! And are those Fiesta plates? I love how your holiday food looks on the fabulous orange! I collect Fiesta and it's so cheerful! Looks delish!

Nothing like a traditional Thanksgiving dinner. We had pretty much the same. I love your idea of making mini pies;) Happy T day!

Looks like a perfect day to me, Erika. I can see why the photos would make you hungry. They sure did me! Thanks for sharing this meal and wine with us for T this Tuesday. LOVED the shot of the table with the red tea pot in the background.

Beautiful looking meal, Erika. I love your little apple pies! Now we all go on diets until Christmas, right?

Happy T-day! Hugs, Eileen

Your Thanksgiving meal looks wonderful! The mini apple pies are so cute, especially with the maple leaf cutouts. I may have to try baking mini pies sometime. Thanks for the idea. Happy Belated T Day! ☕️
