    Default Saturday Thanksgiving Dinner

    As planned, we went to the home of friends today and spent most of
    the day there. There were ten of us. We all contributed somthing to
    the hostess's dinner, but it was different than a potluck as the
    entire meal had been well planned, with no surprise dishes. We all
    arrived around 1:00 p.m. to a groaning board of appetizers. There
    were dips, crudite’, homemade salsa and guacamole, homemade taco,
    white and sweet potato chips. A huge variety of oil cured olives,
    homemade pickles, a platter of some very nice cheeses, and miniature
    asparagus quiche. I probably have forgotten a few things. Dinner
    was around 5:00 p.m., centered around a beautifully roasted turkey
    with giblet gravy, rice, vegetable, and sausage dressing, mashed
    potatoes, candied sweet potatoes with candied lemon slices and
    roasted pecans, green bean casserole (the contributor made it with
    fresh green beans, homemade mushroom soup with lots of lovely
    mushrooms, and cheese-flavored canned fried onions), perfection
    salad, and honey glazed cloveerleaf rolls. Dessert was pumpkin pie,
    sweet potato pie, chocolate pecan pie, and a fresh apple layer cake
    with caramel frosting. We didn't leave the dinner table until nearly
    8:00 p.m., have a very leisurely meal, and I think everyone sampled
    almost everything, some more than once. :-) We met a new Bullmastiff
    puppy and a grandaughter's new fiance. It was a perfectly lovely
    day, and now I'm ready to fall into bed.

    Oh my goodness! I can't begin to imagine a meal like
    that--perhaps because I come from a small family. That sounds so
    nice!

    Sounds like a good time! I had to google candied lemon slices
    because it sounds so good. The first link I clicked on was this
    one. I will have to make it some time soon!

    They don't say what those green things sprinkled on top are. Do you
    think they're pistacios as a garnish?
