Thanksgiving 09

Marc and Shannon came over with their kids, and a few others. We cooked the turkey with oranges this year, sweet potatoes with apples and cinnamon/nutmeg, Green beans with caramelized onions, Cran-orange-Kumquat sauce, and raw cranberries covered with honey and rolled in powdered sugar, Spaghetti-squash with spinach/tomatoes/green pepper/cilantro, stuffing, gravy, ageratum potatoes, Shannon’s home made whole wheat rolls, frog-eye salad, and a big platter of chocolate chip cookies (most of the kids only ate cookies). Lots of pies for dessert. The kids decided to eat outside in their tree/bush house – saved us from having to clean up spills! Lots of kids – I think there ended up being 10 kids and 7 adults? It was fun.
