feasting with family 2013

Joe and I brought a small Wagyu beef roast to my parents' house. They prepared it, along with fresh crab, Hollandaise sauce, and broccoli for the four of us and my aunt and uncle to enjoy. Boy oh boy did we!

Thanksgiving conversation 2012

Photos by Mum Jinx, who writes "A warm and happy Thanksgiving at Larry & Lynn's again this year. Here's the part of the pre-feast conversation that did not take place in the kitchen."

Not sure if that photo is from Thanksgiving day or day before or after. Here's a photo from the same holiday from cousin C'Anna.

I like doing dishes after Thanksgiving dinner—because I'm so full it feels more comfortable to stand than to sit! :)

Uncle Larry writes, "After Saturday's matinee of the Christmas Revels, we gathered for our traditional post-Revels feast at Yang Chow, across the street from the Grand Lake Theater. Jason is an old work friend of Dinah, who ran into him during intermission at the Revels."

Blog (noun) A weblog or similar brief journal usually containing links and commentary thereon. Term coined by Peter Merholz.

Visit Typepad or Blogger to start your own. (I began with hand coding, then switched to Blogger when it first became available, then to Movable Type when I wanted more control over my weblog and to have it hosted at a place of my choosing (Hurricane Electric). Since 06/2003 I've used Typepad, a hosted service built by the same folks who made Movable Type, which I love because I don't have to maintain the underlying system).
