The Thanksgiving Meal

I think the Thanksgiving Meal is by far one of my favorite meals of the year. It’s more like an extravaganza than a meal!! I just love everything about Thanksgiving. It’s one of those holidays that is really all about the food and getting together with loved ones. It’s a lot of effort but I love that my mother-in-law and I work together and churn out quite a spectacular array of dishes. Our meal is pretty healthy and multicultural too! We always have international dishes as part our meal. Here are the pictures of our Thanksgiving table from this past year. I promise to post recipes as and when I can. The kids were responsible for dessert this year – they baked Pumpkin Patch cookies and decorated the pumpkin pies – both were a real hit!
