The celebration kicked off at 11am with our friends Dan, Nancy and Charlie stopping by for appetizers and wine, and continued into the evening with many rounds of Apples to Apples.
With everyone helping out and bringing something to the table, it was a low-stress affair. Jason seasoned and stuffed the two birds, Nate and Amanda handled the appetizers, Julie made her amazing Wild Mushroom Sweet Potato Gratin which is quickly becoming a Thanksgiving favorite (and with two years running, it’s now an official Drews family tradition). My mom whipped up the potatoes and her signature stuffing and Nana’s pies wrapped up the feast. I of course baked my bread – this time adding fresh rosemary for the occasion.
I am so thankful that much of our family lives close by and can all be together for Thanksgiving. A special thanks to Julie and Aaron for traveling up from Los Angeles.
The only hiccup of the day involved my camera, so unfortunately no shots of the actual festivities. Happy Thanksgiving weekend everyone!

I must admit I was looking forward to your day-after-Thanksgiving post. I knew you’d have a lovely table and menu!
