Our annual Thanksgiving party started yesterday as i picked up the rental plates, bowls and glasses, then picked up the two organic turkeys from Westmere Butchery. Then Larry and Karon Stewart arrived in the afternoon. They had been in France while i was in the USA, we hadn’t seen each other for months and it was great to catch up. After some dinner and wine at Nicolinos, Trude and Karon got stuck into making the stuffing.
This morning Trude was up at 4AM to get the smoker stoked for one of the turkeys. Then the four of us had breakfast at The Stone Oven. While i did some tidy up chores outside, Trude and Karon got the baking turkey all sorted and in the oven as well as all the other preparations for the party. Guests started arriving in mid afternoon and we had a fabulous feast and a heartwarming catch up with dear friends that lasted well into the evening. Thanks to everyone who participated in making this a wonderful day to be thankful for.
