Thanksgiving 2008

It was another successful Thanksgiving at my Mom's house this year! Per usual, she had a huge bash. It wasn't as big as years past, since none of our cousins from out of town didn't come this year :( However, even though it was only the Chicago clan in attendance, we still had a crowd of over 25 people!

The above is (most of) our Thanksgiving spread, which included all the potluck items everyone brought. I was rather proud of my own vegetarian contributions! For the party, I prepared Roasted Vegetables with Pecan Gremolata; Apple, Sage, and Quinoa Stuffing (modified from the recipe I learned at the Vegetarian Thanksgiving class at the Chopping Block); and two Field Roast Celebration Roasts.

I was also a fan of the tomato tart that my mom made:

Of course, Thanksgiving wouldn't be complete at my mom's house without the ham and dessert!

All in all, it was a fun evening spent with family. We had lots of food, conversation, and Wii :) Look for upcoming posts for my reviews on the dishes that I contributed to the dinner!
