I was cleaning out my inbox tonight and found this photo from Faux Thanksgiving 2010 -- our fifth annual celebration. This was all the food we (ok, L) prepared for our feast. This has become one of the happiest nights of the year. The Core comes over -- that is, our four friends who have been the bedrock of our time in New York -- and traditionally we eat like kings and drink and play Taboo. The menu, courtesy of L: baked brie with apples and bread; butternut squash soup; turkey, yams, mashed potatoes, rainbow beets, roasted broccoli, stuffing, baked apples, and salad; and pumpkin pie with cool whip & strawberry-rhubarb pie with ice cream.
This year, for the first time, we had two kids sleeping in the bedrooms while we reveled. Unlike previous years, we conked out around 10 and the evening whimpered to a close shortly thereafter. But it was still epic. I was just proud we had a dining room table this year -- it was the first time we weren't eating with our plates on our knees. Adulthood!
