We're celebrating our first Thanksgiving in our new home in style! We cooked up a feast this morning. Sarah helped. My kitchen is big enough to hold three active cooks. I still find it hard to believe that we actually live here, and will, probably forever, and that we are blessed with such a lovely space, inside and out.
After all the cooking and baking, we were invited next door to visit, share a drink, and play croquet. Sarah came in second! Our amazing neighbors are another unexpected blessing living here.
We had an early meal at home, just our family, but there was enough food for 30. I'll try to remedy that next year and fill our home with friends and family.
From left to right there is pumpkin pie, pickles, maple pineapple ham, venison, cranberry sauce, pineapple, baked beans, my Grandma's four bean salad, pickled beets, maple drizzled brussel sprouts, and baked sweet potatoes.
We'll close our day at a friend's home 'round the fire. The bacon wrapped dates are long gone, but hopefully our bean salad, brussel sprouts, pie, spiced cider and wine will suffice.
