The candied yams and brussels sprouts salad look heavenly. I definitely want to try to make that sprout salad, I love pine nuts and I bet they go great with brussels sprouts.

That is a huge turnip! Looks like a great feast.

That turnip weighed in at 4.5 lbs!!! It is an heirloom turnip. The seeds were handed down to Art Nickerson's daughter's in Eastham, MA. Very delicious! Kristen's warm brussel sprout dish was so yummy, I have the recipe right here. I had to laugh at the last pic. so full & relaxed, until the games began. Tray you did an amazing job carving that big bird! Adam we truly missed you!

Oh, My Darling said...

Wow, nice! I figured you'd have an epic Thanksgiving!!! Also, heirloom turnips sound so intriguing.
