Thanksgiving

Thanksgiving is that holiday, that although is not originally from where I am from, I have been celebrating for some years now.

The idea of getting together with your loved ones around food to thank God for the good things is just great.

This year I organized dinner with some of my close friends and family. We had a great time catching up, drinking fantastic wine and eating ... too much I have to say.

I prepared a beautiful turkey, mashed potatoes with buttermilk, gravy, apple and chestnut stuffing, honey-glazed carrots, thyme sauteed apples, green beans with mustard vinaigrette, cranberry sauce and biscuits. And, of course, pumpkin pie.

The food was delicious. My guest were delighted with the menu! My only difficulty was taking pictures of the food.

How do you ask a hungry crowd to hold for the pictures?? Excuse me this time for not giving you the recipes and for the pictures.

I hope you like it!!

En las fotos se ve todo muy rico, pero estaba todo más bueno de lo que se puede imaginar.
Definitivamente fue una cena genial, no solo por la comida, que estaba espectacular, sino tambien por la compañía.

Bss, K
