Happy Thanksgiving!

We started the day with a traditional family turkey trot (this year, on our own given COVID) & ran a 5k. I've prepped most of the food, and M is working on his part of the menu. Nick is busy crocheting hats for the homeless (a neighbor taught him to loom, & he's in love with it & on hat number six). Sam is reading, and relaxing - enjoying no school today!

Here's what's on our menu:

Happy hour:

  • Pomegranate martinis & sparkling cider
  • Goat cheese crostini (some with thinly sliced cucumber, others with pomegranate seeds)
Main course:
  • Kale, squash, pomegranate & goat cheese salad (mostly based on this recipe)
  • Roasted brussel sprouts
  • Green beans with slivered almonds & parmesan cheese
  • Stuffing
  • Cranberry sauce
  • Steak
  • Pumpkin pie with whipping cream or ice cream

What about you? What's your favorite Thanksgiving food (for those in the US)? What's on your menu this year? We're doing a video call with the family soon - looking forward to "seeing" everyone!


  1. Sounds wonderful! I hope your day was fabulous!

  2. Sounds stunning. The goat cheese crostini sounds delicious.

  3. Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family too.
