Pumpkin pie made a day ahead.
I made the main course and wanted to experiment a little with cornish hens.
The finished product. I made an orange glaze for on top of the hens, which received mixed reviews. Some of the family really didn’t like it, but I thought it was a nice change.
There was better feelings about this turkey I baked on Saturday after Thanksgiving. I brined it overnight and baked it breast down for 2/3 of the baking time, all the while babysitting it with a meat thermometer. It turned out to be the moistest turkey we had ever eaten!
