Catching Up Part 2 – Thanksgiving 2012

This year we had Thanksgiving at my friend Joy’s house, where she hosted about 18 people for dinner, both family and friends.  I was asked to bring appetizers, which Coccinelle was helped to prepare.  First we made cheese crisps – very easy to do and oh, so delicious to eat: shred some cheese (these were parmesan and cheddar), make little circles on parchment paper, put ‘em in the oven until the cheese melts and starts to bubble, let cool, and eat:

The we added dill to cream cheese which was destined for endive “spoons” -- half topped with a slice of heart of palm, half mixed with smoked salmon and topped with capers:


Dinner was turkey with all the trimmings, plenty of wonderful side dishes, and non-meat entrees for the vegetarians, including a really delicious kale salad.  The table was long, stretching from the dining room into the living room, and I’m afraid this was the best shot I got of everyone toasting the holiday (and didn't notice that Coccinelle is on the other side of the silver salad bowl):
