Anatomy of Thanksgiving Dinner

Just for fun I chronicled our Thanksgiving dinner in just black and white.
Please forget the previous statement whilst you view the following picture of the fire.

Cozy crackling fire all day
Even though I feel like a little kid when I say it, I really don't like Brussel Sprouts...

Key part of Thanksgiving: dessert. This year we had chocolate cake with ganache frosting along with the Thanksgiving staple of pumpkin pie. Please take a moment to admire Emily's beautiful pie. Editor's note; the pie looks much better in color.

Standing rib roast, delicious oyster stuffing and sweet potato casserole. 
Though I'm not a huge fan of sweet potato, so I just eat the topping off, again like a little kid.

Mushroom wine sauce for the meat any edible thing to be found under the sun.

Also an important part, cranberry relish. My Nana always brings one with cranberries, apples, oranges and walnuts.  I eat by the bowl. Editor's note: literally by the bowl.

My darling Mumsie's handmade napkin rings.

And to end out the night we do the dishes. Then we stayed home and played cards, and did not go shopping, 'twas delightful. Editor's note; Emily creamed everyone in Dutch Blitz.

In case you haven't figured it out yet, Emily is the editor. : )

Sounds like you had a lovely Thanksgiving this year! The food looks (and sounds!) delicious, despite the lack of color. :D

Take care!
