American Thanksgiving . . . in Laredo


Right in the middle of the chaos of settling into her new home, Nicole made us a wonderful Thanksgiving dinner . . .


Brined Turkey, Stuffing, Mashed Potatoes with Gravy, Creamed Pearl Onions, and Pumpkin Cheesecake!

Since I especially liked the texture of the Graham Wafer crust for the cheesecake, I asked Nicole for the recipe.  According to her it was simple:  
Instead of pureeing the crumbs in the food processor I just bashed the graham crackers with a pan.
