Happy Thanksgiving everyone! Tonight, 18 guests will be arriving at my house for Thanksgiving dinner. I couldn’t be more excited! Thanksgiving is one of my favorite holidays throughout the year. I am so thankful for my loving family and friends. I also wanted to thank all of the loyal Kitchen Konfidence readers. I launched Kitchen Konfidence in July 2010 and I never thought it would reach this level of readership so quickly. I truly appreciate all of your comments, likes, love and feedback.
Since I’ve been so busy prepping and cooking over the past several days, I haven’t had the time to update KK this week. I wanted to take a moment to post my Thanksgiving 2010 lineup. Recipes are available upon request.
Please note that I will be tweeting live T-Day updates all day today on Twitter. Check them out: @brandiego. If you would like to join the party, include #kktday2010 in your tweet.

Can I come over to your house?
Seriously, you have an outstanding menu and your guests are in for a very special treat. Have a very Happy Thanksgiving and I’ll be seeing more of you on Food Buzz.
Your menu sounds divine. I’m still in Peru and they don’t traditionally have Thanksgiving, but we did have turkey and mashed yams for dinner. Nothing like your menu!
Great menu. Hope you get a well deserved rest later on. Have a Happy Holiday!
Michael Toa says
oh wow. everything sounds utterly delicious and you must had been busy in the kitchen. I hope you have recovered… 🙂
I’ll be having my thanksgiving dinner today as I was away on the actual day. I cannot wait.
Enjoy the rest of the weekend.

@everyone Thank you for the beautiful, kind words. Thanksgiving dinner was an amazing success this year. I managed to overcome my two issues from last year (dry turkey and poorly formed pie crust). I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving. Thanks again and Happy Holidays!
