Thinking of our gluten-free friends as I post a series of pictures of food from our Thanksgiving feast that appear to be quite gluten-full. Not entirely though, now that I think of it... my mom made the pumpkin pie from Ali's cookbook and it was deliciously gluten-free... Whew! There were other dishes, including a lovely rhubarb crumble from MacKenzie and Gunlis and yummy beets from Joan, AKA Granny AKA Rob's mom. There is one picture of Lucy and her friend Tessa high in a tree. Rob took the kids to a park to ride/scoot/convene with friends before the actual festivities of the day began. No pictures of guests, we got too busy visiting once they arrived to take many pictures. But our guests included Rob's parents, Joan and Ian, my mom, Gloria and stepdad, Merrill, and Rob's brother MacKenzie and his partner, Gunlis. We also had a guest appearance from our 16 yr old neice Brianna.
The bread we've been making lately got things started, with butter, cheeses, veg and fruit.
Rob made an old-fashioned raisin pie for his dad. It was beautiful. I didn't taste it, but it got good reports even from some skeptics... but most importantly, Rob's dad enjoyed two slices of it.
Lucy takes a break high in a tree with Tessa.
Mom's apple pie and then Ali's pumpkin pie, made by mom. They tasted as good as they look.
Most of our menu came from Fine Cooking's Thanksgiving feast - this was a bread stuffing recipe from Tom Douglas.
I love Thanksgiving. I am grateful for the opportunity to plan out a meal and then have a nice, appreciative crowd to serve it to. Plus, Rob did, I'm embarassed to admit it... ALL the dishes. What a guy!
