Some of my brothers emailed and my sister texted and emailed. She's so thoughtful. She asked what my favorite Thanksgiving memory of him was! It is/was that he ALWAYS invited those who did not have family nearby. Since there were just the three of us, it was great to have a houseful to share our feast. We usually talked about favorite family traditions or foods that MUST be included. It was always fun.
We often had to rent dishes (I hate paper plates). The GREAT part about renting? You don't have to wash them!!! Just rinse and stack in their handy containers and return them the next day.
Leslie made FOUR kinds of pie! We had island purple sweet potatoes with garlic and coconut milk. Roasted brussels sprouts. Green beans with crispy shallots. The BEST stuffing EVER (and I am a stuffing connoisseur). Even the turkey was spectacularly delicious.
Yes. I made the veggie tray above (I later added eyes!) and that is our turkey line up.
I am thankful.
