Thanksgiving! My very favorite holiday because it is about family, friends, food, and not commercial in the least. At least if you don't count the crazy sales that now start the week of Thanksgiving.
We are having our good friends over for dinner and sharing the cooking. Our table will have some regular favorites that I am making: Honey Ginger Pumpkin Pie, Simple Roast Turkey with Rich Turkey Gravy, Sage Stuffing, and Spiced Cranberry Sauce with Zinfandel. A new addition is Maple Pecan Pie with Wheat Crust.
We are making our annual trip to Monticello, and we are hoping that it doesn't rain. We've always had such great luck, so we'll keep our fingers crossed.
