We are still coming down and recovering from Thanksgiving and mostly taking it easy this weekend with football and classic movies while trying to get outside a bit as well. I thought I would share with you some of the highlights of our day…with some of the recipes to come this week.

As you know from our countdown list, we were working all week…here is the culmination. Our scribbled on master list, our buffet all laid out with sticky notes, the zillion appetizers we ended up with, and my personal fav: Veuve Clicquot, courtesy of some fabulous guests.

All of our appetizers got relocated to make room for the actual buffet, but I have to say they were amazing! Including something new for us, fresh duck and dove; delish!

Lovely table courtesy of Ali and an array of borrowed and creative decorations!

We had an amazing group of people who were all willing to pitch in. Plus, the highlight of an hour-long session of what we are thankful for; gotta love a happy and thankful group! A great party like this makes all the work – and dishes – worth it!


I hope you all had as wonderful a day as we did. I really couldn’t have asked for more!
