First Thanksgiving

This year Mommy decided to cook Thanksgiving Dinner when Annie-Ayea called us up and said, "What are you guys doing for Thanksgiving? Nothing? Can we come and have turkey with you?" And so we started to invite people and invite people... I think we ended up with about 15 assorted family, friends and colleagues.

This picture was taken straight out of Saveur... Just kidding. I love devilled eggs! Daddy should be a food photographer!

A little smoked trout rillette? No? Perhaps some Green Chile Cheese?

Ahh... My beautiful bird! Of course, that one was just for pretty. The roast in the foreground was actually the delicious one. I'll never make turkey any other way again...

Of course, everyone knows that the true stars of Thanksgiving are the sides... Mashed potatoes, candied yams, green beans, STUFFING and glazed brussel sprouts, oh my!

Yep, that's right! I made FOUR PIES. Two pumpkin, one pecan and one banana cream!

These are some of our lovely guests, my grandma (left), Uncle Bob (center) and Jin Lee (far right) with her roomies. I guess this was the Chinese table...
