Thanksgiving. In photos. Few Words.

November 28, 2008 by Joan Nova in Family-Size Meals, Fotologue, Holidays, Party Menus | 11 Comments

Thanksgiving is celebrated at my sister’s house…she’s a good cook too and a great hostess. Yesterday we were, I think, 18 people. I was too busy photographing and eating the food so, sadly, I only managed to capture 4 people. 

The welcoming pig chef who announces the occasion.

Tablescape: Note the kiddie table covered with brown paper and crayons.

Some of the appetizers: pumpkin-pesto pizza pinwheel; guava paste, boursin cheese & almonds, and the star of the show a baked pumpkin cheese fondue.

Some of the sides: mashed potatoes, brussel sprouts & chestnuts, 
carrots, and fennel, arugula and pomegranate salad.

mmmm…stuffing and gravy

Deep dish apple pie by Jim; store bought pumpkin pie; 

pumpkin cookies by Teri; fruit salad by Carolyn.

And a few of the people we are thankful for:

Nina and Michael

Nico and Adriana

Hope you all had a wonderful day…don’t forget Blogger’s Aid which is fighting world famine.

    Those roll ups look very cute.

    I feel the same way about traveling, cooking, photography, etc. I agree that sometimes it’s really hard to make a choice….I’ve been trying to make that choice for 7 years now.
