The Picture of a Beautiful Thanksgiving

We had a great Thanksgiving 2011, starting with the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade and ending with Thanksgiving episodes of The West Wing. Here’s a recap of Turkey Day highlighting a few things for which I am thankful.

I am thankful for food to cook …

My sous chef who helped with the cranberry sauce …

Cooking my first garden pumpkin in the oven …

Which turned into this Pumpkin Praline Dessert

I am thankful for my home and a big kitchen to cook in …

And A LOT of dishes …

I am thankful for a beautiful fall afternoon …

And our annual “turkey trot” neighborhood walk, which this year, included a bike ride …

My little turkey …

I am thankful for my wonderful sisters (including the one giving thanks in Iowa) …

My sister Sari’s (and the Pioneer Woman’s) burgundy mushrooms and bacon-bleu cheese biscuits …

I am thankful for Mr. Turkey …

More food …

And most of all, I am thankful for my family!

Hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving!
