Last Thanksgiving we were eight and a picture, this year nine of us celebrated as Maisie is finally with us.
We had a wonderful day, sharing it with my parents and friends, Deb, Dan, Ian and LiLi. All the children had fun playing together and the meal, if I do say so myself, was quite delicious.
Our evening started with bacon wrapped shrimp and a veggie tray. We then feasted on Jerk Turkey Breast with Raspberry Sauce and/or Gravy, Stuffing, Mashed Potatoes, Sweet Potato Casserole, Roasted Beets, Corn Souffle and Cranberry Sauce along with two very nice wines courtesy of Deb & Dan. Of course no holiday is complete with out dessert so after letting dinner settle for a bit we had coffee and enjoyed a delightful Cranberry Cake with Butter Sauce, and a Spiced Streusel Apple Crisp accompanied by much to much whipped cream. It was a fun holiday for us and we hope that everyone reading had a great holiday too.
