I made mushroom stock for the cream of mushroom soup the night before.

In the morning, Gavin took our little one out to the park so I could cook. I watched A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving on my laptop while I was stirring and mixing and roasting.

This is the first year I cooked Thanksgiving dinner by myself. (Gavin coached me on the gravy, but I am the one who made it.) I am so pleased and proud of how it turned out!

After dinner decaf.
