Post Thanksgiving

The table my daughter,Jessie and son, Luciano set for this years Thanksgiving dinner.

Father and daughter getting ready to carve the turkey.

This was Jessie's first time preparing the Thanksgiving feast.

Our son, Gian's pecan pie.

Three days before Thanksgiving I was diagnosed with pneumonia. Some of you may have noticed I haven't been posting much lately. I've never felt so bad. But our daughter, Jessie took over the show. She had my favorite cookbook in hand and only casually asked my husband or me for advice. She did an outstanding job! The turkey was both beautiful and delicious, I did take pictures but for some reason their not on the camera. (I really wasn't allowed in the kitchen but kept sneaking in to document the occasion.) So a special Thank you to my daughter for stepping up to the plate and cooking her first Thanksgiving dinner.
Much love, mom

  2. I hope your feeling better soon. How nice to have someone else cook such a big meal for you. All your kids participating, the pie looks great.

  3. Aww, so glad your daughter marvelously stepped up tot he plate. It all looks amazing from here, let me tell you. Love that shot of her too--very fun. I do hope you are feeling better by now, Karen?

    Congrats on the Artful Blogging article. It looks like you had a great art open house. It was a great idea to combine your opening with the article.

  7. Dear Karen,
    I do hope you are feeling better?
    This sounds a terrible time to get sick.
    Your daughter seems to have stepped up to the plate admirably.
    I'm deeply touched that you enjoyed my little Jane story.

  8. looks like you had a wonderful thanksgiving-- now xmas is on the way. congrats on the artful blogging article and thanks for stopping by my blog.

  9. Aw, hurray for Jessie! Your daughter saved Thanksgiving this year. Way to go, Jessie! When I looked at your photographs, my eyes went straight to that molded jelly and fruit salad. I had an instant flashback to the church potlucks of my youth when the farmers' wives and country grandmas used to make the most incredible dishes, including those molded jelly and fruit salads! Yum!
