First Thanksgivings!

We had 5 people in our home today who were eating Thanksgiving dinner for the first time! I got photos of all of them--just not together. In addition to Ryan's immediate family and Grandma Leatherman, we had a friend from Turkey and 3 from Korea.

Here was the menu (Have I mentioned I really do like cooking? It's finding the time to do it that proves to be challenging.):

  • Vegetable Tray with AE dip
  • Chips and Salsa
  • Turkey with Cranberry Sauce
  • Stuffing (Grandpa Leatherman's recipe)
  • Mashed Potatoes a la Grandma Leatherman
  • Black Bean Couscous Salad
  • Broccoli and Cauliflower with Cheese Sauce
  • Rolls
  • Pumpkin Pie (Thanks Susan!)
  • Chocolate Cake from last night

We really enjoyed introducing the turkey and stuffing to our friends from abroad. It's also been a beautiful day, and Stephen has been to the park and the guys even played football in the street in front of the house.
