Happy Thanksgiving!

Happy Thanksgiving Day!

Hopefully you got to spend time with your families as we did. It's been a long day and even a longer night. The girl is so over tired she can't settle down. Right now, she's pitching a fit on her floor. Hopefully she'll fall asleep there and I can move her to the bed in an hour or so.

I pulled some of the kohlrabi from the garden. More came out than I needed. Because of the close spacing, when one came from the soil, it invariably brought another with it. Dan was completely right! It tastes just like a cabbage with a small finish of light radish. It was really good sliced raw and dipped in some ranch. Here's a picture of the veggie tray, made completely from veggies from the garden. It's so nice to see it all come together like this.

We also had a curry chicken ball as an appetizer. I loved it, but I'm thinking curry is something you either love or hate, even if it's in small doses.

Instead of making a sweet potato casserole or souffle, I took all the butter, brown sugar, cinnamon and marshmallows and made individual casseroles right in the potatoes themselves.

I tried to get a picture of the turkey, but by the time I got to it, it had already been carved.It was a wonderful night.

Actually, it was even better because of something my father made for me. I was so crazy-excited I jumped up and down, and what's better is that it's garden related! I'll post about that tomorrow.

The morning comes early...and even earlier now that it's already 10:53 and the girl just fell asleep. Sweet gardening dreams.


  1. How rewarding it must be to serve a veggie platter made from your own garden vegetables. The mini-sweet potato casseroles look good too.

    Can’t wait to see what your father made for you :)

  2. You're pretty amazing yourself. It makes your Dad happy to know he's appreciated.
