Gobble Day Rerun
I was more than happy to hand Thanksgiving dinner over to the younger generation this year. After one engagement party, two bridal showers, two rehearsal dinners and one bachelorette party, I am over arranging parties for a while. Daughter and Son Number Two were glad to put together a very memorable meal. Son Number One and his new wife are floating around the Atlantic, still on their honeymoon.
Daughter offered up her home to host the event. Mine is a disaster. It looks like a Hobby Lobby/Party City combo at the moment.
Her new hubby cooked the bird and four desserts. Son made an array of amazing veggie side dishes. The polenta stacked with kale was delicious, not to mention the Brussel sprouts with maple glaze. Daughter set a beautiful table with all her new kitchenware. I am envious. Between her shower and her wedding she pretty much owns the contents of a Crate and Barrel.
I am at home again now, watching Gaga's Thanksgiving special, wondering why I didn't bring home a big hunk of this made-from-scratch pumpkin cheesecake. It was really good.
