Thanksgiving #3

Well folks, it’s that time of year again – we’re cooking up a Thanksgiving Dinner today for our urban family. We’re doing it this weekend because we’re off to the States on Thursday – YAAAYYY. This year we’re cooking for 11, biggest number yet, and are missing our trustee photographer and chopper and general slave Dan … she’ll almost be tucked up in bed in San Francisco, only 4 sleeps to go until we get there!

Anyway, here’s our own attempt at a self-timered photo documentary:

Started yesterday with 2 dozen Christmas fruit mince pies (homemade, Jiff),

And this afternoon (this morning was taken up with making caramelised onions, crostini and the housework).

Eeeeeuw what’s that bit?

Barely fits into the bag (see Jiff, it’s not pre-bagged and pre-stuffed…)

Into the oven, 3 minutes behind schedule 😐

Errrr, feeling a bit tired already

Right, back out to the kitchen. Oh, here’s what we’re having – most of it a repeat of previous years but it always goes down well.

Sorry should have spellchecked or I could use the excuse that F.I.L. makes – "my fingers are too big!" M.I.L
