Giving Thanks

I love a good food challenge, so Thanksgiving, however exhausting, was really fun!


I am always impressed with how an array of food from the farmer's market turns into an actual meal. And Thanksgiving was no exception. 

It began with a botched attempt at taking Mr. P. to see "Tangled". We dropped Doodlebop off at my parents' at 8:30 am, but then the projector at the movie theater broke (go figure) so we came home and they watched Toy Story 3 while we began the cooking. 


We were a small group this year and did a potluck. I contributed:

Cranberry / walnut / pomegranate bread:


A brie, pear and olive tart (no photos because while it was delicious, it was sadly not so photogenic)

Persimmon, celery root and Swiss chard stuffing: (the recipe can be found here)


And a fresh cranberry and blueberry pie!




The table was set...





The boys got all dolled up:



And I got a new fall do!


Then the feasting began....


and didn't end until Sunday night. Hello gym....here I come!
