Thanksgiving 2011

The tables were set.

(And a word of caution... if you plan on heading to your big box craft store the day before Thanksgiving to get appropriate table decorations, think again.  It is all Christmas all the time.)

We had appetizers,

which some small people liked very much,


and creamed onions.

My sister-in-law brought these fabulous roasted Brussel sprouts with bacon tossed in a vinaigrette.  I really need to get the recipe.

There was cranberry-orange relish and cranberry jelly.

Everyone pitched in to help.


There was much salad

and even more pies.

And believe it or not, everyone was up and ready to eat again this morning.

G. and D.

Truly, there is much we have to be thankful for.

Happy Thanksgiving!
