beginnings of a feast

so i sort of screwed up and forgot (as we were in a bit of a hurry) to take photos of our finished products. still, i wanted to share a few photos of what we made for thanksgiving, the greatest holiday ever, according to me.  our neighbors were kind enough to invite us over for dinner and we had a lovely evening filled with great food and even greater company.  they cooked some delicious dishes and provided us with many many delicious drinks.  our morning began with mimosas. naturally.

making pesto for a vegetable wellington that included asparagus, onion, and red peppers wrapped in puffed pastry and baked in a loaf pan.

wild wild west mushroom stuffing made with a lovely home made sourdough loaf, chanterelle mushrooms and wild rice. 

butternut squash tart with bourbon doused squash, toasted almonds and a wheat germ crust.

my favorite very tasty lemon poppyseed shredded brussels sprouts.  we bought Brussels sprouts on a branch! which is probably the most exciting thing ever!  i really want to grow some next year!

and toasted wheat germ rolls!

Hope everybody had a wonderful holiday!
love, heidi
