I hope you all had a great Thanksgiving! We had our usual family gathering, which was wonderful. I broke my raw food diet for the day with much success, I felt fine and was ravenous! This is a typical hors d'oeuvres for our family. Pigs in a blanket (that were a little charred by my grandmother, which has never happened before, she’s an amazing cook), the most delicious shrimp and cocktail sauce, loads of fantastic cheese and crackers, pomegranate that I brought, crudités and dip, meatballs, even nachos made an appearance later for the younger kids.
I was too caught up by dinner to snap a photo, but it was great as well. Turkey, amazing cranberry sauce, sweet potato pie with marshmallows on top, broccoli, salad... delicious. For dessert, apple pie, pecan pie (with homemade whipped cream, I’m craving more already!), a pistachio pie (not good, made by a cousin, tasted like crayon) and pumpkin flan. Just a decadent meal. A sign I didn't eat enough -- I'm hungry again now!
