I’m finally able to get part two of our Thanksgiving posted. We had a wonderful dinner at Mom and Dad’s house. Patrick took the reigns and did most of the cooking this year and, between me, Bill, Michael and James, we were able to get lots of beautiful pictures of the food.
Here was the menu:
Browning the pork loin before roasting
Patrick butterflied the turkey as it roasted. I’d never seen that done before, but it makes a lot of sense to get more even heat distribution.
Roasted root vegetables and green beans. The beans were tossed with toasted almonds and a light vinaigrette.
The sweet potatoes were really delicious with the pecan and ginger snap topping.
Dominic hitching a ride…
Helping Grandpa clean up.
I’m not sure what happened here.
The apple pie before it’s topped.
And after. The topping got a little scorched, but it was still delicious.
The pecan tart.
Hmmm, I don’t have any photos of the pumpkin pie that Jan made. I’ll have to see if James took any.
On Sunday we spent the day hanging out at Mom and Dad’s house snacking on leftovers. I got to spend lots of time snuggling with baby Dominic.
Is someone watching this guy???
Both boys passed out at the end of the night.
