Thanksgiving 2014

It's December 1st. One part of me says "already?!" and the other says "it's felt like December for a month already." The exceptionally cold and snowy November and late Thanksgiving seem to have had people in the mood for the holidays even earlier than normal.

But Thanksgiving is one of my favorite holidays and as usual, it didn't disappoint. We went to the hubby's Great Aunt Nina's house on Turkey Day and then hosted an After-Party at our house on Saturday for my family to continue the fun. Here are some highlights:

Pinterest gone right for a change!
My Mom's cranberry relish is always a hit.

Soooo many desserts...

This little cutie
Seasonal cocktails
And so much yum!
The pork loin turned out perfectly! It's based an Epicurious recipe for maple glazed pork. I used a whole loin, added fresh cranberries and thyme and roasted it in the oven. Dee-lish!

Pro tip - don't print your menu until you know what everyone is making (oops!)
Hope you had a wonderful holiday! What was your favorite dish?  Did you get any great deals?
