Thanksgiving Dinner 2007

We celebrated Thanksgiving last weekend and we had a great time! I was able to source all of the ingredients with the help of a package from Mims and a little store called Lupe's Deli! We invited our neighbors and it was "brilliant".

We made turkey, cornbread dressing, sweet potatoes, green beans, salad, apple pie, pumpkin pie and pecan pie squares. We were really missing our dining room and the nice big kitchen on Meadowknoll Drive! We have one tiny hob and about 8 feet of counter space so the preparation was a little more challenging and lunch was cozy in the kitchen! Nevertheless, the food was yummy and the company perfect.

I set the kitchen table for the adults and set up tables in Charlie's room for the children. The guests included Pippa and Neil Watson, their girls Jessica (4) and Georgia (1), Ethan's friend William, Pippa's Father Brian Gibson (lives next door and her mom was out of town) and Pippa's brother Kerr (he works in the family business so we see him often as they office out of the Gibson's house next door). It was so fun! They all pitched right in to help get the final dishes ready and we really enjoyed their company! Everyone arrived at 1 and by the end of the afternoon we had them watching American football on the Telly, Kerr asleep on the couch, and Pippa and I finishing the wine until 8!

I managed to get a few pictures but regretfully not one of Brian in his Family Tartan Suit! Riot!

It was a great first Scottish Thanksgiving!
