Giving Thanks

I am a little late posting about my Thanksgiving but better late then never!  I invited a few friends over for a Turkey Tuesday dinner.  We all dressed up in our finest clothes and brought a dish to share.  I cooked my first turkey and it was delicious!  I also provided home made cranberry sauce and roasted carrots.

Unfortunately, we lost power in part of the kitchen and had to be creative with how to warm up Katie’s potatoes.  After that little hiccup we all sat down and gave thanks to each other and feasted!  It really made me think more about how lucky I am to have these friends in my life.  It was a terrific night!

After our Tuesday feast, I headed West to California to spend Thanksgiving with my god mother.  My Uncle Thomas hosted turkey dinner at his house in El Granada.  We got off the plane and headed there to visit with my lovely cousins and Aunt and Uncle.  The food was great and the company was even better!

It was a nice trip with my mom, sister and Juls.  We went to Sonoma for a day of wine tasting and then a day to the city for some shopping in China Town.  We ended our trip with another feast at Juls with the California Ingraham family.
