Workin' For Food

All you experienced bloggers, I have to ask, where do you begin with a food and drink blog when the entire day was filled with so much activity and fun, you find it hard restraining your typing fingers to a simple discussion of good food?!  Guess you just have to be selective.  So, in a large nut shell, I present Thanksgiving Left Over Party notes.

Dessert 2

On the dessert table, my favorite table to prepare, we have, chocolate mint mini pies, cake truffles, chocolate mocha cheesecake (Teddy - don't you wish you were here?!), apple crumble pie, lemon treacle tart, chocolate chip and leaf cream cheese cookies, million dollar peanut butter cookies (reminder! - check that recipe out on the Pillsbury site for the Bake off 2008).

For the main dinner, we had Roast Turkey, Tofurky (not pictured), Giblet gravy, whole berry cranberry sauce, Sourdough Apple Stuffing, Red-White Bean 6 Cheese Lasagna (check out recipe soon to be posted), orange essence green beans, wild mushrooms and sauteed spinach, Pear and Blue Cheese Salad (recipe will be posted), Oven Roasted Potatoes with Rosemary and Garlic (recipe to be posted), rolls, and shrimp.

Nancy is not only beautiful, but she is Shane’s new best friend. Bob is ranked right up there as well (Shane just said that as he peers over my shoulder!…whoops! is my wine showing?)  She and Shane played tug of war until both of them were panting.  But alas… look what happened to Shane:
