Thanksgiving

We were thankful for a beautiful morning, both for the beauty and for the weather that let friends drive safely from their homes to ours.

We were thankful for our friends, who come from distant cities to share this meal, for having a place for them to come, for the bounty they bring of various foods, and for having food ourselves to share with them.

This was the buffet table -- ham at one end, turkey at the other.  You can see steam rising from the turkey.  Two other dishes weren't on the table yet...setting out the food was still happening.  The gravy boats weren't out yet, for instance.  Here's one--sauted sweet potatoes, apples, with dried cranberries and nuts, right after it came from the kitchen.

We gathered at the table (not everyone's there yet, or in their places.

I don't have a picture of all the desserts, which is a shame, but between this part of the feast and dessert was some cleanup time and a long walk on the land to work off Phase A and make room for PIE.  This was a year of PIE.  We had a lot of PIE.   Most of us took tiny slices of at least three of the six pies plus a slice of cranberry nut bread.
