Busy Weekend





We finished off the weekend - much like we started it - entertaining friends here at the house.

We had our Thanksgiving celebration with some new friends - good friends - here in Kingston.  It made me realize how much we have to be thankful for............
our sweet lil home
good food - and the ability to buy it and cook it 
and share it with friends!

Unfortunately my photography skills failed me - I haven't reached the advanced class yet - taking photos in low light ...............ugh :(

But here's a picture of the turkey in the oven ............ (artsy fartsy)



And here's dessert - my mom's recipe for soft gingerbread - served warm from the oven with whipped cream................ 




We talked until the wee hours - and then I fell into bed.  Today I am feeling every year of my age!!!  and I still have a messy kitchen to clean ............ no slacking off till it's all done!!

Good show, Morningstar!
Some turkey, wow! It seems to me you'll be eating it for ages unless you expect some visitors!
The dessert has me watering at the moth, you are truly a good and inventive cook, congratulations!
A messy kitchen to clean, yes of course, but such a beautiful kitchen...
