Thanksgiving Dinner

Our Thanksgiving dinner!
My wife and I made a traditional American Thanksgiving dinner. We had mashed potatoes, stuffing, and turkey with gravy (one of very few meat dishes in our house). We also had sparkling apple cider to drink. For desert we had pumpkin pie.

The turkey in the crock pot.
Pumpkin pie loves you, too.

Usually, cooking a dinner like this takes all day. However, this year, we tried something new. We put a turkey breast in the crock pot with a little water and some seasoning. It cooked for 7 hours while we were away. It turned out really moist and delicious. We probably spent about an hour in the kitchen total. It was pretty easy.


  1. How interesting!
    All dishes look very tasty. I think that's wonderful to cook in traditional way;)

  2. It looks very good!!I want to eat it.
    Pumpkin pie is very cute:)

  3. Did you cook the stuffing in the rice cooker? We have done that before, and it works rather well. ;^)

  4. No. We didn't, but it sounds like an interesting way to make stuffing. Can you post a link to the recipe you used? If not, we can probably find one.

    Stuffing is by far my favorite part of the meal, especially when it gets a little cranberry on it. Yum.
