Why not? It gives our daughter and family an uncontested opportunity to be with in-laws and turkey on Thursday, and with us and a vegan dinner on Friday. Small family gathering, but one of Barbara’s best dinners ever, in my humble opinion.
There were five courses:
- Beet – Celeriac Salad with Remoulade, Feta, Grapes and Niçoise Olives
- Green Beans and Toasted Pecans, alongside Roasted Potato Stacks
- Roasted Butternut Squash and Red Onion with a Pomegranate Balsamic Reduction Sauce
- Baked Homemade Stuffing with a Killer Mushroom Gravy
- Sweet Potato Spice Cake and a Dark Chocolate Cake

The delightful evening was made even more attractive with Sarah’s decorative touch:
This is one of your most beautiful posts.
Thank you, Susan. Maybe because I did not do any of the cooking and could devote myself to the camera and participation.
