Food Fest!

Here’s hoping that at this point, you’ve slowly come out of your carb & tryptophan induced coma.  Personally, I’d like to still be in one, but alas–back to the real world.  I have to share our menu, because it was amazing.  And delicious!  However, because we wouldn’t want it to be too perfect, our beautiful pecan pie was a big soupy mess.  Not that it was deliberate, mind you!  It was truly a devastating tragedy, as it looked amazing and everyone aside from Christi and I proclaimed pecan to be their favorite holiday pie.  Ooops.  It does serve as a reminder that just because something is beautiful on the outside does not mean that it’s beautiful on the inside.

A Beautiful Tragedy!

But enough about the pie tragedy, on to the rest of the delicious and very edible comestibles!

WINE!  I forgot the wine…a pinot noir, of course.  What else does one have on Turkey Day?  Gobble gobble!  I know, I know that was rather snobby of me–drink what you like!  But do try to like pinot noir, if for nothing other than drinking with Thanksgiving dinner ;- )

Alright, so how did your Thanksgiving compare?  Inquiring minds want to know!
