Woke to a foggy Thanksgiving morning, a great misty view from our back porch. (Brief update: This photo collection won the Thanksgiving Photo Challenge on Food52 last week! The collections were so awesome so I was surprised and excited to win. Thank you for voting for these photos!)
Filled old mason jars with tea lights… so folks made it through the fog to the house. 🙂
Smoked two Vermont heritage birds in our old rickety smoker, fragrant smoke wafting across the entire block.
Basted the smoked bird in olive oil and… more olive oil.
Baked 4 no-knead loaves crusted in corn meal especially for Thanksgiving.
Chopped hazelnuts were sprinkled all over my caramelized brussels sprout & sweet-potato ravioli salad.
Sparsely-set long tables for our dear friends and family, topped with a homegrown-centerpiece made from recycled wine corks, wire, old gnarled wood & dried hydrangea from the garden.
Sparsely-set table setting, up close.
Warmed tomato pie from a Philadelphia-based cousin made for a quick appetizer as folks arrived.
Ruby, our sweet dog, took a break beside our huge photo of the Rockefeller Christmas tree, an ode to things to come.
