I love planning a big meal, cooking, and sharing good food with good company. What more can one ask for on Turkey Day? Last year, I did this. This year, I fed 7 people including myself, and I was really happy with what I came up with :) Thanks Adam for handling the turkey from start to finish - it was one of the best I've ever had. And thanks everyone for bringing dessert - they were all so amazing!
Now, feast your eyes!
It's a Thanksgiving tradition for us to start with some cheese and crackers, some good Italian cured meats and olives from Alleva which is our favorite Italian store in the city.
(The lighting was pretty bad where we set up the serving table so the photos turned out pretty sad - sorry about that! I also didn't want to fuss around with my photos while my guests were waiting to dig in!)
Alex was so creative and made these amazing cupcakes in jars! She really went all out with the packaging too! DEE-LISH!
There was also the Crack Pie from Momofuka Milk Bar, and Petra's homemade apple pie!
Our landlord upstairs was so kind and gave us a homemade cheesecake that everyone enjoyed.
After dessert, we all sat on the couch and needed a rest from consuming all the good food. While a few decided that it was time to head home, other stayed and we played a couple of games and had a few more drinks before the night ended. It was a great Thanksgiving, and I was so blessed and happy that I was able to celebrate this day with some of my favorite people. Hope your Thanksgiving was just as amazing as mine was :)
Until next time!
