Thanksgiving dinner 2011

I ate at my desk

Hope my American friends had a great Thanksgiving Day and for friends in other countries who didn’t celebrate the holiday, I hope your day was exceptionally nice.

Carolyn had a so-so day of cooking, but the end justified a bit of angst she endured. First, her macaroni and cheese stuck and scorched in the pot. Then she brought me a sample of my favorite part of the holiday meal, dressing, and said it didn’t taste right. I tried it and was gracious in agreeing; it basically wasn’t finished baking because the onions and celery was still somewhat hard. Back in the oven it went and came out tasting much better. The day was good except that Jeremy, Courtney, Keegan, Jerry, and Tammy could not be with us. The eleven guests who were here had plenty to eat, and no fights broke out. Sammy provided entertainment.

Carolyn tried a new green bean casserole; it had mushroom soup as an ingredient and she feared no one would like it. It was delicious.

I had a vegetarian dinner; no turkey.

Carolyn is at Ashley’s where, along with Chris, they are putting up Sammy’s first Christmas tree.

My apology for the low sound volume on Sammy’s video; I think I must have had the microphone partially blocked with my finger. The flick was made with my Droid X.

Have a great weekend, my friends!

  1. Eleven guests! So it was a great feast. Food on your plate looks so appetizingly, my friend. A part of this dinner (covered with a red jelly) is like Polish BIGOS (sour cabbage and spicy pieces of meat and sausage) but I know that it’s a vegetarian dish. And how to call this piece of orange food covered with a whipped cream? Is it sweet?
    I love casseroles. This one – with green bean and mushroom – seems to be very good. I would like to be for a moment (at least) in your kitchen and look at Carolyn how she is cooking.
    Video is well made and really fantastic. I played it many times. šŸ™‚
    Happy Thanksgiving!!! (sorry that I’m a bit late).

  2. The red jelly is cranberry sauce; it and turkey stuffing or dressing are traditional foods for the holiday. Beneath the jellied cranberries is dressing which I am sure you would like. The orange food is sweet potatoes (yams) covered with melted marshmallows and it is sweet.
    The green bean casserole was delicious; I am not a big love of mushroom soup, but it was perfect in this dish.
    It was late yesterday when I got the video on Youtube; I had uploading problems.
    Thanks, my friend. šŸ™‚

    • I got back here to look at your holiday dinner again. I’m hungry. šŸ˜‰
      I had a heavy day in the office yesterday but you all – my American friends – were in my mind and I remembered that you were preparing for a celebration of Thanksgiving Day.
      Thank you for your clarification, Ken.

      • We had several more dishes besides what I ate, but I like the traditional stuff best.
        Thank you, Jola.

  3. I sure did miss you guys this year. I had to work Thanksgiving day but Courtney fixed a nice dinner for the 2 of us. Looks like a tasty plate you had there. I had a few bites of turkey but I sure don’t miss the meat anymore. Hope to see you soon!

    • Glad y’all had a good Thanksgiving dinner. Hope you can come in around Christmas; we miss you.

  4. All was good here.

    I love green bean casserole with mushroom soup. Deviled eggs. HMMMMMM.

    No turkey????????????????????

    • I think we Tammy should change you from “Marky” to “Mikey”; you will eat anything. šŸ™‚
      I’ll explain about the turkey on the blog.
      Thanks, Mark
