Our Thanksgiving

Even though it was not a holiday here, our Thanksgiving dinner was quite traditional. My friend Priscila mentioned she wanted to get together in appreciation for all the blessings this year. It was what my friend Camila and I needed to make our dream come true: cook a Thanksgiving dinner! We had ten-layer salad, turkey and cornbread stuffing, mashed potatoes and gravy, grean beans with basil, cheese spread with garlic and sweet potato biscuits, ginger flavored cauli-flower, pumpkin cheesecake, apple pie and even a roasted pork that our friend Tim fixed. Drinks served included wine, soft drinks and hot spiced cider. One of the highlights of the evening was after dinner, when we shared our blessings and wrote them down on fall colored paper leaves to hang them on the Thankful tree. The room was beautifully decorated and I want to thank my friend Camila for hosting this dinner!

Recipes will be shown in future posts.

It sounds like such a fun celebration and the food looks and sounds delicious! I made pumpkin bread similar to yours for our Thanksgiving. I love to make zucchini bread too and give it and the pumpkin bread as Christmas presents.
I've just browsed down through your posts and now I'm sooo hungry! Your photos are so beautifully done! I'll be copying some of these recipes and look forward to seeing the TG recipes.
