Thanksgiving 2006/2007

Moving right along…

I don’t seem to have any pictures of Thanksgiving 2006.  I recall it was in Cleveland—Chris and I were invited to celebrate with some friends, though not terribly close friends.  It’s a bit bittersweet looking back because one of the other guests has since passed away.  The meal was delicious though, and it was a good Thanksgiving.  We spend the rest of the day watching CSI:Miami.  Why do I remember this?  I don’t know!

2007 was one of my favorites.  We went to Phoenix to celebrate with Leslie and Sarah!

This Chris’s famous butter turkey recipe, so good!  I promise we didn’t eat it until it was fully cooked.

I thought I had more pictures of this but I can’t seem to find them.  Anyway, Leslie and I put together an amazing menu (primarily butter, of course) and had a wonderful time planning, cooking, and baking.  The highlight may have been running to the grocery store the night before, afraid we didn’t have enough pies planned, so ultimately we had (I believe) 6 pies for 10 to 12 people.  I think that was more than enough.

Did you know in Phoenix you can eat Thanksgiving Dinner outside?  We ate in her backyard patio on a picnic table.
