Thanksgiving at the Farm-2015

Ah, another satisfying Thanksgiving.
As usual, it was shared with dear friends.
This year at the McIntire farm.

This old wooden plaque greated us on the mantle.
Note the carving knife and fork from a bygone era.

Beside the plaque was this pilgrim hat.

It didn't date from the from the first Thanksgiving though.

My camera could not capture the warmth of the setting.
It was raining off and on all day but wasn't the least bit dreary inside.

This was my dinner plate.
Yes, I ate every delicious morsel!!

The "groaning board" from which I artfully filled my plate.
While enjoying dinner, we caught up on what our children and grandchildren were doing.

Did we save room for The Baker's
pumpkin pecan pie with bourbon whipped cream?
You bet we did!!

And, we left with take-out containers of leftovers to enjoy the meal again.

Thanks, Steve and Diana.
You are always perfect hosts!!
