This year we had a wonderfully quiet Thanksgiving with just the eight of us. It was so stress free and peaceful. We were all so thankful for such a beautiful day. The kids played with some neighbors an impromptu game of baseball while we prepared the food and had such a great time. Once that set of neighbors needed to go eat with their family another neighbor girl came over and played in our backyard until it was time for our dinner.

Such a beautiful day all the way around.

 Smoked, brined turkey on the grill

yummy rolls from Wild Flower 

wild mushroom dressing

turkey all carved and ready to go

whipped potatoes paprika

watercress and radicchio and cranberries w/ homemade cranberry vinaigrette dressing

green beans with shallot butter and pecans

harvest squash soup (combo of acorn and butternut squashes) w/ fresh chives and creme fraiche

We were pleasantly full and deeply satisfied as we had so much to be thankful for!
