How was your Turkey Day?

Now that we've all come out of our food comas and survived Black Friday, tell me how your Thanksgiving went. I made stuffing, and as I'm used to Thanksgiving for about 30 people, I made entirely too much. I am a traditionalist, just the usual sage stuffing with mushrooms added. I think next time I'll venture beyond the norm.
My boyfriend's mom made the most incredible bread pudding with a pecan-brandy sauce. It's rare that I take seconds of dessert -- I'd rather have a second helping of the "real" food -- but I ate two full portions and took three more servings home. (Only one is left!)
My mushroom dish was a hit with even the most die-hard turkey lovers. I made too much, but it was a nice substitute for turkey.

As always, I loved turkey day. Great turkey, lots of squishy side dishes (mushy sweet potatoes; mashed white potatoes; some gross new carrot dish that tasted like sliced carrots in butter and sugar, only the butter was more creamy than melted), AMAZINGLY GOOD dressing that I swear every year I'm getting my aunt's recipe for (it was the one thing that we only had one mini tupperware container of leftovers for)... All about the family. Lots of fun. And way too much dessert.

My hubby and I don't cook on Thanksgiving since it's just the two of us. We had a wonderful dinner at the Brandywine Inn in Monroe. Readers who haven't experience their delightful atmosphere, flawless service and delicious food should make the trip. It's well worth it. Their hours are limited, so it's wise to check http://www.brandywineofmonroe.com/ for more information. (No connection with the business, just a very satisfied customer.)
