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....
