our thanksgiving








Our Thanksgiving was amazing.  So much love + happiness + amazing food.  We discovered new recipes that we will surely be making a part of our own tradition.  Played games (i won!) Watched movies (how on earth did we wait so long to see The Hangover?!) And stuffed ourselves silly.  It was a lovely day full of fun memories I will cherish for a long time to come.  I am thankful.

In case you're curious....here's a peek at our delicious menu:
aromatic brined turkey
oatmeal stout gravy
apple + chestnut stuffing
spicy whiskey spiked cranberry compote
potato + apple + onion gratin
creamed spinach + parsnips
brown sugar autumn crisp with spiced cinnamon ice cream

Your Thanksgiving table looked lovely, and what a menu! My husband and I also celebrated our first Thanksgiving together this year, with a couple of friends here in Cape Town. As a non-American I loved the whole festivity and look forward to more.
