This year, Thanksgiving was held at my parents’ house, with a group of family friends converging, each bringing a number of tasty dishes! A recipe for success, I’d say. Everything was very tasty! Didn’t get as many food shots as I wanted – I can’t seem to take good photos with a flash! But just take my word for it – it was good!
A floral centrepiece Susan put together:
Mum’s artsy and very tasty hour d’oeuvre:
I made some pumpkin and tomato soup (with a bit of a cayenne kick) as a starter.
I also invented a little salad specifically for the occasion. Perhaps I’ll call it Thanksgiving Salad.
– 2 pears
– 2 grated carrots
– some purple cabbage
– roasted pumpkin seeds (from the same pumpkin I used to make the soup)
Dress with a bit of olive oil, balsamic vinegar and a smidgen on maple syrup.
“Sufficiently sufficed”, as my Dad would say. And this was even before dessert!
