Best Thanksgiving Ever

Aces is brillant.
She and her boyfriend brought his cat Rei to Thanksgiving. Rei is a Russian Blue mix, but teeny--she's about 5 pounds and 2/3rds the size of a normal cat. She likes to go visiting, and is not afraid of a 2 year old or a new house or a giant dog.
Peaches kept exclaiming, "Kitty, kitty tat!" and following Rei around. She was uninterested in making hand turkeys with me as long as Rei was round.
I had 2 glasses of Maker's Mark mixed with apple cider. Delicious. Jesse X agreed.
I made honey and lemon glazed carrots and parsnips, my cranberry-apricot sauce, and the brussels sprouts Aces contributed. My mom called me this morning to tell me how good it was.
Everyone got along.
Tomorrow I am going to shelve at the library. The only problem with having Thanksgiving at someone else's house is the lack of leftovers, although I have tons of ingredients--I had ham and brussels sprouts today, and I might make mashed potatoes and these sweet potatoes with pecans and goat cheese tomorrow. I have a ton of celery, red potatoes, sweet potatoes, and russets from Bountiful Baskets, along with carrots and herbs. Any recommendations for things I could make?
