Talkin' turkey

Only a week has passed since Seth and I hosted a Thanksgiving dinner with Laurie and Bryan here on the 'bush, and I still can't stop thinking about the meal...:

(Yep, that's me caught in the act of gazing lovingly at my dinner plate. Embarrassing.)
...and the friends who braved our grimier than grimy kitchen to create it...:
...and the ones who waited (and waited!) for it to be ready. (Thanks again for making it such a great day):
Some of the highlights include:
enari sushi:

a beautifully carved, perfectly crisp and juicy turkey:...chestnut stuffing, two kinds of sweet potatoes both sweet and savory, fruit salad, cranberry sauce, parker house rolls, then there were the desserts. (Okay. Everything was delicious!) Unfortunately, I forgot to take a picture of the dessert table laden with apple pie, chocolate burbon pecan pie, and irresistible pastries including baklava.And if you're a longtime reader/fan of The Old House Club (Hi, Mom!) you know that my Thanksgiving table isn't complete without green bean casserole. Here's the recipe in case you're interested.
Unfortunately, the leftovers are gone--at least the memories remain!
