It' s All Over But the Groaning!

Thanksgiving Dinner was a quiet affair with our neighbors, all of whom are around our age, no children at home and families far away, so we annually get together and celebrate the day in friendship.

The brined turkey turned out great, as did both dressings (cornbread and sage), the sweet potato casserole and Brussels Sprouts. One neighbor brought a salad and two bottles of lovely Riesling and the other brought two pies (pumpkin and pecan) and bottle of soft Merlot. Good food, good drink, good friends and an afternoon of conviviality - what a delightful time we had even though I ate too much! Groan

Lovely table! And so is your blog, you have so many great pictures. Your before-and-after garden photos are great, you have a charming little paradise in Maine!
