Today is Thanksgiving and I will say that I am most Thankful for the special people in my life.

Jim & I started our Thanksgiving last night with Pizza at Rocco's with our friends the Harpers. Two of the Harpers were home from college and this was a nice way to get together for a visit.

Today we cooked at home and our friend Ted joined us. Ted brought a steaming Persimmon Pudding which was our dessert. You can even see the steam rising from it here.

Our meal started with drinks and veggies, white bean hummus, cheese & crackers. Would you believe that these two were drinking Navarro's Gerwurtztraminer Juice and not real wine with alcohol?

Our meal was a Spinach & Pear Salad, Rolled Turkey Breast, Sweet Potatoes with Maple Glaze, Sausage Stuffing, Two kinds of Gravy (Apple Cider Gravy made by me and Whole Foods Gravy from a jar), Cranberry Orange Relish, and Whole Wheat Rolls. Ted's Persimmon Pudding, with a dollop of crème fraiche was a lovely end to a delicious meal and visit.

A good part of today's meal was made by Trader Joe's...The Trader certainly knows how to cook!

Give thanks for those things that enrich you life.
