Thanksgiving Part 2

Ben and I hosted Thanksgiving for the 2nd year in a row and had my parents as our guests. I think we are finally getting the hang of preparing a huge meal in our tiny kitchen. Ben literally had a timeline of when to prep and cook everything so all the food was hot and ready at 5pm exactly.... I think his time management has been influenced by his time in the military.....

For our Thanksgiving meal we had: 
Egg Casserole for breakfast 
Turkey  (Ben did a fantastic job... the turkey didn't need any gravy and you could cut it with a fork!) 
Stuffing (only thing not homemade...) 
Sweet Potatoes with marshmallows and walnuts 
Cranberry Sauce 
Loaded mashed potatoes (cheddar cheese, roasted garlic,& bacon) 
Green bean casserole

Applebutter Pumpkin Pie
Rum Pecan Pie

Ben's Timeline:
