Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday. It all about being thankful for what you have and getting together with loved ones. We had a small gathering of friends over, but we all had so much fun. Everyone brought something delicious, and we ate, and we ate, and we ate. After dinner we played some games and we laughed, and we laughed, and we laughed. It was a very fun and festive evening, just exactly how it is supposed to be too.
Yes, I was in the kitchen cooking most of the day, and I prepared all the traditional Thanksgiving dishes like stuffing, mashed potatoes and gravy, roasted vegetables, a colorful salad, and of course, the main attraction – the TURKEY. Julia brought her famous rolls and Lauren made a fantastic antipasto tray.
The star of the day.
And the co-stars.
Julia and her beautifully delicious rolls.
We had already started nibbling on Lauren’s antipasto tray before I thought of taking a picture of it, but trust me, it was beautiful, delicious and very creative.

When it was time to eat, Larry starting carving the turkey. We were all hungry, and were ready to get this party started.
For desserts rather than making big pies this year, I made small little nibblies instead, including some of my caramels. Video #18 – Making Caramels with Priscilla.
We had a very Happy Thanksgiving indeed. I hope all of you did too.
