Thanksgiving


I hosted in Charlestown. My mom cooked a duck. Leah made apple butternut squash with creme fraiche and crispy bacon soup for lunch. We sipped rose and fancy pinot noir and feasted on maple chipoltle mashed sweet potatoes, roasted brussels sprouts, grapes and walnuts in balsamic, creamy potato gratin, butternut squash, gouda, and parmesan cheese stuffing, canned cranberry sauce and pumpkin bourbon peacan pie.

This is late, but I hope you had a lovely Thanksgiving all the same. Work is busy and holidays parties, Christmas shopping, ski weekends and trip planning are in full swing.

More dinners soon.
