Thanksgiving Dinner

Thanks to Mom, Lisa and my dog nephew Cash for the Thanksgiving wishes!

We celebrated Thanksgiving this past Saturday, 26 November. It was a beautiful day, sunny and low 70's. Two of Forrest's coworkers joined us, one from northern Australia (his first Thanksgiving!) and one from Netherlands Antilles area but went to college in the US.

The menu included:

artichoke dip

roast turkey (with lots of fresh rosemary)
pan gravy
old fashioned stuffing (mom's recipe, made with homemade bread)
roasted sweet potatoes (called kumara here)
mashed potatoes (with plenty of full cream, cream cheese and butter)
grown up green bean casserole
apple curry
canned cranberry sauce (sad i couldn't find fresh cranberries and couldn't make Aunt Nancy's famous recipe)

apple pie with vanilla bean ice cream
pumpkin pie with homemade whipped cream
side-note: if you don't own this cookbook, own it soon. it's an absolute kitchen necessity.

and Forrest and our guests did all the dishes!
