Thanksgiving

Thank you to Miss M. for being a wonderful, funny, willful, charming, smart and cunning little girl. Thank you to Dr. Chung and CRMI for making said girlie possible. And thank you to W., for being her father and my husband, and for cooking nearly all of the Thanksgiving feast we will consume later, except for the things his mother is making:

Turkey (locally grown)
Cauliflower stained in red wine (from the Campagna cookbook)
Hashed Brussels Sprouts (from the Union Square Cafe cookbook)
Garlic Mashed Potatoes (from Mastering the Art of French Cooking, vol. 1)
Parker House rolls (W's mom)
Cranberry Onion Chutney (from Epicurious)
Fresh Cranberry sauce (W's mom)
Pumpkin Pie (W's mom, from his grandmother's recipe)
Apple Tart (my sole contribution, with a piecrust made from yesterday's lard)

Way to go on NaBloPoMo! I'm surprised so many of us have made it this far. That cauliflower sounds like a beautiful addition to the Thanksgiving platter! I hope the tart turned out well :)
