A Very Happy Thanksgiving Celebration

The table is set and ready for guests to arrive.  A small Thanksgiving celebration this year.  We really missed having all our friends and family that usually join us.  We still laughed, enjoyed the food, and were grateful we were together, yet sad that more could not join us.
 The prerequisite Pumpkin Pie.  I used the recipe that I got from the cooking class but added a few embellishments of my own.  The leaves were my idea and turned out pretty nice.
 Lots of cooking.  Got the olive oil in the background along with the slap chop.  The world is a better place with my slap chop.  I believe this volunteer (hey come over here and stir this) is stirring the fresh cranberries into submission.
 Too many cooks spoil the pot?  Not in my kitchen.  The more the merrier.
 Out of the oven, the bird was well roasted.  The outside toasted skin hid moist and juicy meat inside.
 Putting all the food on the table.  The first course was a squash soup with a dollop of cider sour cream.
 No talking...all eating.
 After eating, some dozing.
 Also some begging.  Then, what do you do after a successful Thanksgiving day celebration?
Why drive a long way and attend a dog show.  All I can say is "Steeplechase Q!!!"
