We got together with 4 other families and Scott’s good friend Dan who drove down for the occasion, cooked and ate lots of yummy food, and had a really really nice time.

The highlights for me were probably the Dance Dance Revolution after-party and the chaos of cooking that morning. Dan saved the day by chopping, slicing, and stirring as needed, and we ended up using four different ovens at one time (it’s great to have neighbors!). We started at 8am and made: mushroom gravy, wild mushroom and hazelnut stuffing, whole wheat rolls, fantastic spinach salad (brown sugar dressing, spiced pecans, orange zest, red pear, pomegranate, black grape, and red onion), and pear & sweet potato tzimme (chopped and roasted with pecans and raisins).

My dad sent me a new lens for my camera (a Nikon 28mm f1.8) and I had fun trying it out, as well. I’m improving my picture-taking and photoshopping skills little by little and it’s a very fun hobby for me.
