Not just for the Birds ...



So ... I can't say we had the most traditional of Thanksgiving dinners. As you can see it involved lawn chairs, a concrete floor, a make-shift table and a beautiful centerpiece (dropped off by some friends.) We did eat turkey and I did make a pie (lemon meringue). There were only 3 of us (me, PDaddy and Gin.) We talked a lot on the phone to the others ... some with video chats.

And ... as I'm sure is more than obvious ... we counted our many, many blessings.

And named them one by one.

How about you? How was your T-day? Mostly I want to hear about pie.

Counting your blessings is the important thing!! Homemade lemon meringue pie sounds wonderful. We had pumpkin and cherry. Have a good weekend. Sally

Did I mention I made my first pie? And, not to brag, but everyone said the crust was amazing. And I even had a second helping of turkey for the first time in my life. All in all, a good day.

Our blessings were counted, too.

I had an awesome chocolate cream and some apple bread pudding with vanilla bean sauce- Chelsea makes a mean cherry and apple and my fave pecan- diabetic coma here I come!

Of course, by comparison to dining on fish, turkey, seabirds, venison, corn, and squash outdoors in Massachusetts (or Florida, since the first Thanksgiving may have been there years earlier) in the Winter, I suppose a bare cement floor with a flower arrangement, domesticated turkey, green bean casserole, and pie might seem pretty good.

I think it actually focused thanks better than our usual more elegant and elaborate surroundings and meals. And with my forced newfound focus on the non-food elements of celebration, it was truly all I wanted.

It was a simple, happy, home Thanksgiving.
