Thanksgiving 2011

This year, I was blessed to be part of two family Thanksgiving meals: lunch and dinner.
Delicious food, prepared with love, shared with family and friends.

Thanksgiving Lunch!


Delicious turkey, mashed potatoes, stuffing prepared two ways, gravy, green bean casserole, sweet potato souffle with marshmallows, Corn salad, cranberry sauce, black beans and rice casserole, broccoli, vegetables and cheese casserole.

Green bean casserole topped with French's fried onions.


Mashed potatoes, gravy, chutneys, broccoli, vegetables and cheese casserole.

One word, "Yummy!"

Sweet Potatoes topped with marshmallows.

The dessert spread included homemade chocolate cake, pumpkin cheesecake pie topped with pecans, chocolate cheesecake mouse, handmade desi sweets from Canada, fruit salad with marshmallows etc and chai! I could've skipped the meal and just gone straight to dessert!

The dessert spread!

The BEST dessert ever!!!! Not sure what it's called but I call it, chocolate cheesecake mouse with chocolate dipped wafers, topped with fresh berries. YUMMY!!!!!


Nothing like desi chai!



The Second Thanksgiving Dinner!


Salad, Turkey, potatoes, asparagus, green beans, sweet potato casserole, stuffing, corn, delicious bread with butter, fresh key lime pie, chocolate cake! 


Simple but delicious linguine tossed in olive oil, garlic salt and topped with cheese.



Then this gorgeous wooden tea box from Mexico was brought out for us to pick our own flavor of tea. 
I chose the mint with chocolate tea! 
Amazing!




An amazing evening spent with old and new friends; talking, laughing, sharing!
Love and Light,
From one sufi to another,
