No offence to the tofurkey lovers out there, but I was never a big fan of turkey to begin with, so why would I want a faux version?
The new Feist album kept me company in the kitchen… (it’s so good!)
mmmm sweet potatoes and pecans = deliciousness
there was also an unpictured apple / pear crumble
Lots of yumminess courtesy of my favourite nutritionista, Meghan Telpner (who just got a book deal!! So proud of you miss!) My copies of her recipes from her classes 2 years ago are so weathered and loved, I knew I was making great choices with this menu. I shared dinner with a (very happy) roommate who was also home and mention of my menu on the twitter actually garnered me a marriage proposal. It was definitely a little bit different than your traditional Thanksgiving fare, but it was delicious, nutritious and well loved.
It was a delicious meal and I really enjoyed the beautiful weather and the extra long weekend! I’m so thankful for all the wonderful things in my life: amazing friends, family, coworkers and blog readers, the opportunity to do what I love, a great place to live and my health!!
How was your thanksgiving weekend? What are you thankful for?
