Happy Thanksgiving!

This year, for the first time in a long time, I am spending Thanksgiving away from home. Our New Orleans Thanksgiving meant turkey, honey baked ham, sweet potato casserole, green beans (not the classic casserole with the fried onions from a can - although I LOVE that kind), salad, cornbread dressing, and cranberries - all smothered in gravy (well that is what I do anyway). Check out this spread from 2007. YUM!

That year I had just started dating my now fiance and I brought back to California a plate of my Thanksgiving dinner (left below) and he brought to me a plate of his (right below). We each got to taste the Thanksgiving dinner of the other. This year I am lucky enough to be able to taste his family's cooking in person. Looking forward to those stuffed onions!

Happy Thanksgiving!! Gobble gobble ;)


  1. I think those are actually marble - but we do have several alabaster lamps... including one where the lampshade is actually alabaster and the light just filters through in this soft way. Really pretty. Gotta love the auctions in New Orleans!
