And of course there was Thanksgiving and all the food to prepare for that event. We got together with the Roger's family, who are our neighbors along with another couple and Sister Murphy who is Annabelle's church teacher and whom all of my children love. She's the one who knitted all of them those darling winter hats.
For the Thanksgiving feast we brought sweet potatoes, a couple of holiday salads (one quinoa with green onions and nuts etc, and one green salad), stuffing, cranberry sauce and 4 desserts. Scott made a caramel apple pie, I made pumpkin cheesecake (same as last year), we made Oreo turkeys and we bought a pecan pie(my personal favorite). I love Chef Brad's version of sweet potatoes so I made those again this year. They have a layer of quinoa for added nutrition that you can't really taste, plus a yummy topping made with chopped walnuts, coconut, butter, brown sugar and flour.
