We had a wonderful Thanksgiving in Silverdale with my parents, Granddad, my aunt Paula and her family and neighbors Peter, Hedy and Elicia. My mom made menus that doubled as place cards:

  1. Oh my gosh! I want to go to a party at your parent's house!! Beautiful menu that makes me salivate thinking about the flavor palate!

  2. I love the idea of the printed menu; what a pretty place setting! Everything sounds so yummy- I'm hungry again!

  3. Can I come next year? That sounds delicious and I will be hitting you up for some recipes - especially the curried pecans. I can't believe how grown up Amy & Nate are!

  4. Forget my family, Tday at the Dance's was by far my best Thanksgiving ever. We still make the sweet potatoes w/ bourbon puree every year!
