Thanksgiving 2007

I spent Thanksgiving at my parent’s house as I have done almost uniformly for the entirety of my life. Even more impressively, I think, is the fact that my family has done the celebrating at the same house for that entire time.  I feel quite lucky to have that sense of continuity in my life; it gives me a sense of permanency and connectedness.  But on to the food.  Here’s our Thanksgiving spread for 21 guests:

The menu was classic Thanksgiving fare: turkey, dressing, gravy, mashed potatoes, sweet potatoes, and cranberry sauce.  But with such a big crowd, some other dishes made an appearance: Ham, a ramen noodle salad, buns, corn, and a separate dressing.  It turned out to be a lot of food.  I made a ham and the sweet potatoes.  I’ll post those in separate posts. 

More Thanksgiving pictures can be found here.  My favorites from that web album are the following pictures.  The first is a foster child my sister is looking after:

The next is my sister Jessy sampling the Ramen Noodle salad:

This one is just a happy nephew:
