Thanksgiving recap

Finally getting a chance to blog about my Thanksgiving. 
I love Thanksgiving, it was awesome this year because we got to make the turkey. My grandmother always makes it and this year we wanted to try some new things. 
We soaked the turkey in a brine the night before and then we injected some awesome seasonings under the skin. We don't bake our turkey for 7 hours as my grandmother does, we did for 4 1/2 and it was the BEST turkey EVER!!!

It was a quiet Thanksgiving since most of our family lives 400 miles away. But it was so nice, we sat and talked and looked over the black friday ads while eating coffee and pie! 
and I didn't have anything to shop for the next day but decided to go with my mom. It was actually nice not stressing over the black friday shopping, I kinda enjoyed it! 
I hope you guys had a great Thanksgiving!
