Here's our Thanksgiving table, set for ten. If you look closely, you can see the Swedish flag behind the candle, representing my Grandma Alice. You can't see the front of the lovely placecards my niece made for everyone, with names written in 2nd-grade cursive and an icon representing each person's interests (for me, a pie; for my husband, a bicycle; for my sons, a trumpet and a clarinet). Here's what we ate:
Smoked salmon and capers canapes (made by my mom), assorted cheese and crackers
Green Salad with Meyer Lemon Vinaigrette
(made by me)
Herbed Cornbread Stuffing
(made by my sister)
Pumpkin Pie with Whipped Cream
(made by my mom)
Chandon California Blanc de Noirs sparkling wine
2005 Edna Valley Chardonnay "Paragon"
1996 Gevrey-Chambertin "Les Evocelles" (a French burgundy, selected by my step-father)
Vivaldi flute concertos, Prokofiev Romeo and Juliet
What did you eat?
