Thanksgiving 2010

The Dunn family invited us to join them for Thanksgiving this year. We brought our now standard Pumpkin Roll, which you can see in the photo below of Nolan with the whipped cream. This one is Brian’s request, a tradition from his Aunt Sally, that was made with the farm share pumpkin this year. We also brought Spinach/Hazelnut Salad, another tradition, to ensure there is always something healthy and green on the table!

But before dinner, the boys had a few chores to do: put away the porch furniture and bring in the dock.

Once the boys declared “mission accomplished” it was time to dig into the tasty appetizers – Uncle John’s pate’ with crackers, and some red peppers to dip in hummus. We watched football until the rest of the crew arrived.

One important test of the day was to see if Nolan would like the pate’.

But it definitely was not as good as when Grandma let him lick the whipped cream off the beaters.

As you can see, we had tons of yummy food and a good time was had by all! We even brought home a baggie of turkey and stuffing to enjoy as leftovers later in the weekend.

Happy Thanksgiving!
