What did you cook for Thanksgiving?

I hope all are having a wonderful Thanksgiving! My dad and second cousin, Bill, are in charge of the turkey, which they decided to roast with bacon. This year, my dad ABDICATED his position as side dish-chef, and now I am helping them by making a CORNUCOPIA of sides, including, roasted sweet potatoes, butternut squash, green beans with red peppers and mashed potatoes. After dinner, we are heading over to a friend’s house for a dessert party. I love the traditional pecan and sweet potato pies, but this year, I decided to make a blueberry pie to ACCOMPANY home-made brownies. I know blueberries are not very seasonal, but every summer, I freeze freshly-picked berries for moments like this. Please stay tuned for a guest blog by one of my best friends, Sofia!

Happy festivities,


  • ABDICATE = to give up (position)
  • CORNUCOPIA = an abundant supply
  • ACCOMPANY =  provide something to complement
